Chelsea Wolfe will return with a new album on September 22nd. Titled Hiss Spun, it marks the gothic rocker’s sixth LP overall and the follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed Abyss.

The Sargent House release was recorded by Converge’s Kurt Ballou in Salem, Massachusetts, and is meant to be something of an “emotional purge” in response to the disarray of the outside world. “I wanted to write some sort of escapist music; songs that were just about being in your body, and getting free,” Wolfe explained in a press statement.

“You’re just bombarded with constant bad news, people getting fucked over and killed for shitty reasons or for no reason at all, and it seems like the world has been in tears for months, and then you remember it’s been fucked for a long time, it’s been fucked since the beginning. It’s overwhelming and I have to write about it.”

Joining Wolfe in the studio were a number of guest musicians, including guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen of Queens of the Stone Age and Aaron Turner of Old Man Gloom.

Hiss Spun is being previewed today with lead single “16 Psyche”, a dark and savage number that sees Wolfe embracing more and more metal elements. Hear it below.
