Chelsea Wolfe is releasing a new album, Hiss Spun, on September 22 via Sargent House. Previously she shared the album’s the dark and oppressive “16 Psyche” and the equally dramatic black metal (or doom metal) sounding “Vex.” Now here’s a video for “16 Psyche.” A press release says it is “a throwback to a now-classic era of metal and alt-rock music videos around the turn of the millennium.” Zev Deans directs and the video also features Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure), who also appears on the song and was in some of those turn of the millennium rock videos. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Kurt Ballou (Converge) recorded the album, which features guitar contributions by Van Leeuwen on the whole album. The album is the follow-up to 2015’s Abyss.

A previous press release says the album “was conceived as an emotional purge, a means of coming to terms with the tumult of the outside world by exploring the complexities of one’s inner unrest.”

Wolfe had this to say about the album in the previous press release: “I’m at odds with myself. I got tired of trying to disappear. The record became very personal in that way. I wanted to open up more, but also create my own reality.”
