Chelsea Wolfe released a new album, Hiss Spun, last September via Sargent House. To help you remember that fact, she has shared a new video for one of its singles, "The Culling." Wolfe co-directed the gothic video with artist Bill Crisafi, which a press release says is inspired by Baz Luhrmann's 1996 film Romeo + Juliet, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes as William Shakespeare's doomed lovers. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Wolfe had this to say about "The Culling" in a press release last year: "I'm at odds with myself, exploring different characters, comparing war stories...desperation, withdrawal, clarity, disgust, grief. There is a sense of feeling like a vulnerable mess, but giving into that and turning it into some kind of beautiful decadence; becoming stronger through accepting the mess of yourself...accepting that you're this feral creature full of instincts, cycles, rage and love."

Kurt Ballou (Converge) recorded the album, which features guitar contributions by Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure) on the whole album. The album is the follow-up to 2015's Abyss.
