Chvrches dance on water in ‘Leave A Trace’ video – watch

Band release second album 'Every Open Eye' in September

Chvrches have shared the video for new single ‘Leave A Trace’.

The Glasgow band recently confirmed details of the new LP, which will be titled ‘Every Open Eye’. Following on from 2013’s ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’, the record will be released on September 25.

This clip for ‘Leave A Trace’, a song which singer Lauren Mayberry previously described as “a middle finger mic drop about not being told what to do”, sees Mayberry and co dancing on water amidst a storm.

Speaking to NME earlier this year, band member Martin Doherty discussed their plans for the new LP, including the trio’s desire to make it “leaner” than ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’.

“I think we’ll use fewer instruments but ultimately try and do more with them,” Doherty said. “When you listen to a Michael Jackson song or a Prince song, you realise there’s absolutely nothing in it but an amazing bassline, drums and singing. We want to channel some of that.”


The band also recently announced a UK headline tour for November, including their biggest London gig to date.

Chvrches will play gigs in Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Aberdeen, Dundee and Birmingham before playing London’s Alexandra Palace. Four Tet will provide support on the London date.


Chvrches will play:

Brighton Dome (November 16)
Bristol O2 Academy (17)
Manchester Albert Hall (19)
Newcastle O2 Academy (21)
Aberdeen Music Hall (23)
Dundee Fat Sam’s (24)
Birmingham O2 Academy (25)
London Alexandra Palace (27)
