Glasgow synthpop trio CHVRCHES have confirmed the release of their third full-length album. Entitled Love Is Dead, the 13-track effort is due out on May 25th through Glassnote Records. It follows CHVRCHES’s 2015 sophomore LP, Every Open Eye.

Love Is Dead is an album about growing up and “coming to terms with the fact that there are great things in the world and there are awful things in the world and that you can’t get one without the other,” explains frontwoman Lauren Mayberry.

Adds bandmate Iain Cook: “We’re fucked, the world is fucked. But there’s an ellipses at the end. It’s Love Is Dead. Like, how did we get to this point? And how do we move on from this point? It’s Love Is Dead, we’re fucked, what’s next?”

Grammy Award-winning producer Greg Kurstin helmed nine of the album’s 13 tracks, marking the first time the band worked with an outside producer. The National frontman Matt Berninger also contributed, as he sings on the newly revealed single, “My Enemy”. Listen below.
