CHVRCHES Announce Screen Violence, Share New Single and Tour Dates

Following the release of April’s “He Said, She Said,” Scottish synth-pop band CHVRCHES have released a new single “How Not To Drown” featuring Robert Smith from The Cure. The two singles will be on the band’s forthcoming album Screen Violence, out August 27 via Glassnote Records.

“How Not To Drown” is an industrial rock-inspired track with the band’s electro pop flair, accented with Smith’s iconic vocals dripping in vulnerability and passion.

Alongside the song and album announcement, CHVRCHES will also embark on a North American tour this fall, kicking off November 9 in Houston, TX and ending December 17 in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 11 at 10 a.m. local time.
