Scottish synth-pop band Chvrches have announced their fourth studio album. It’s called Screen Violence and it arrives August 27 via Glassnote. Today’s announcement comes with the release of a new single featuring the Cure’s Robert Smith called “How Not to Drown.” Check it out below, along with the album tracklist and artwork and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

“How Not to Drown” marks Chvrches’ second single of the year, following April’s “He Said She Said.” In 2019, the band released “Death Stranding,” its addition to the Hideo Kojima game of the same name.

Chvrches’ previous studio album Love Is Dead arrived in 2018. Revisit Pitchfork’s interview “Chvrches on the Frustrations That Inspired Their Outspoken New Album.”
