Chelsea Wolfe returns with a second single from her upcoming album Birth of Violence, due September 13th. Accompanying the release of ‘American Darkness’ is a music video directed by Karlos Rene Ayala.
‘American Darkness’ explores symbolic expressions of tarot cards. Wolfe states “I’ve been reading tarot cards for myself for many years, and researching the symbolic expressions of the cards for this video made me want to dive even deeper. To represent that, I played both The Fool and The High Priestess cards in the video, to embody both the beginning of the journey, and the realization that the sacred knowledge I was seeking was inside me all along. We cast friends to play a few other tarot archetypes, and Karlos’ idea was to bring the symbols and signifiers into the contemporary; deconstructed, and made everyday.”
Wolfe will headline The Palace Theatre on November 15th. Be sure to grab tickets here!
