# acoustic set, with EELS

Chelsea Wolfe is excited to announce an upcoming tour this Spring with Eels, which will take her across North America for a special acoustic set with strings. She’ll be joined on stage each night with a violin and keyboard playing new renderings of songs off her acclaimed 2013 record, Pain is Beauty, as well as favorites from the rest of her work. Wolfe has also announced an additional round of dates with Queens of the Stone Age, reuniting again with the band after a run of shows together this winter.

Watch “Feral Love” Official Video, Directed by Mark Pellington

Wolfe has had a remarkable year surrounding Pain is Beauty, including an upcoming collaborative film with prolific director Mark Pellington, Lone. Fans can get a taste of Lone by watching the official video for “Feral Love,” an excerpt from the full film and a stunning visual accompaniment to some of the themes explored on Wolfe’s record, with “nature, sexuality, memory, mortality, forgiveness, love, innocence, fragility, violence and beauty” taking a prominent role, according to Pellington. Lone will be released on April 1st in a streaming format as well as on custom-designed USB drives, available for pre-order through her artist store.

Pre-Order ‘Lone’ Film, Directed by Mark Pellington

The concept behind Lone was birthed out of a mutual desire between Wolfe and Pellington to expand upon the concept of a classic music video. What began as an idea for a nine minute short film extended into what is now just under an hour-long piece, with Pellington fleshing out the concept surrounding Chelsea’s lyrics and music. A nonlinear film, Lone takes its dialogue solely from lyrics off Pain is Beauty and explores some of the themes and ideas behind the record.

Lone serves as another major benchmark in Pellington’s remarkable career, taking its place alongside Pearl Jam’s era-defining, award-winning video for “Jeremy,” as well as his canon of videos for U2, INXS, Nine Inch Nails, Foo Fighters, Moby, Michael Jackson, and feature films I Melt With You, The Mothman Prophecies, Arlington Road and Henry Poole Is Here, among others.

Chelsea Wolfe Take Away Show for La Blogothèque

“Her best and most emotionally direct work yet . . . she seems to exist alone in her own world on Pain is Beauty, crystallizing and strengthening her musical language without compromising her original, principled vision.” Pitchfork

“Chelsea Wolfe has a surreal voice that cuts through her foggy, soulful, often haunting rock and folk music. There’s a thorny vision of yearning, heartbreak and death in Wolfe’s songs that’s striking, yet always brings us back to what makes these bleak themes so appealing, even beautiful.” NPR

“A shudder of emotional torment, poised between a swoon and a sob, resides in the voice of Chelsea Wolfe, and the ambiguity feels custom fitted to the music. Pain Is Beauty, her fourth album in three years, confirms her steadiness as a singer-songwriter of gothic intention, drawn to romantic fatalism and beautiful ruin.” New York Times
