Chvrches returned in April with He Said She Said.

Chvrches have confirmed their fourth album for release on August 27th.

It comes with another preview entitled How Not To Drown, a track featuring Cure frontman Robert Smith who got on board after the band undertook largely remote sessions for Screen Violence in Los Angeles and Glasgow.

“I think for me it was helpful to go into the process with the idea that I could write something escapist almost,” Lauren Mayberry says.

“That felt freeing initially, to have concepts and stories to weave your own feelings and experiences through but in the end, all the lyrics were definitely still personal.”

“To me, the screen aspect was a bit more literal,” Martin Doherty adds. “When we were making the record, it was like half of our lives were lived through screens. What began as a concept was now a lifeline.”
