CHVRCHES today release their highly-anticipated new album Love Is Dead, via Virgin Records (UK) and Glassnote Records (US).
CHVRCHES are Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty. Love Is Dead is the band’s third album, following their top 10 debut The Bones of What You Believe (2013) and its top 5 critically acclaimed follow up Every Open Eye (2015). With the soaring success of their first two albums propelling CHVRCHES into new worlds of fame and acclaim, Love Is Dead is at times euphoric and others bittersweet. Featuring the singles ‘Miracle’ and ‘Get Out,’ as well as the previously released ‘My Enemy’ (feat. The National’s Matt Berninger) and ‘Never Say Die’, 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,” says Mayberry.
For the first time in their career, Love Is Dead sees CHVRCHES welcome outside influences, with 2017 and 2018 GRAMMY Producer of the Year Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia) co-producing nine tracks, whilst BRIT Award Producer of the Year 2018 Steve Mac also produces a song.
Over the course of their career, CHVRCHES have played countless shows worldwide, with each tour’s production reaching new heights and leaping towards the top of festival bills. The band have announced their first UK show in two years, playing TRNSMT in their hometown of Glasgow on 8th July, as well as a number of other festivals across the world and a headline US arena tour. Today they announce a new European tour for November.
