Chelsea Wolfe has announced the impending release of her sixth studio album Birth of Violence on September 13. The album is acoustic/folk-oriented in nature and not only describes where Wolfe is at in her personal life, but also touches on topics relevant to our world today, such as school shootings and the state of the planet. Birth of Violence is available for pre-order now and will be released through Sargent House on September 13th.
