Next spring, Ulven will promote the record with a headlining North American tour.

As detailed on Monday, the trek will visit most major cities — with the intriguing exception of Los Angeles. The current itinerary ends shortly before the Coachella Valley Music & Arts is expected to resume in April 2022 …

As for the new album from girl in red, there’s a maturity of focus and musical cohesion at work throughout the record, which was first previewed with “Serotonin,” a confessional, grunge-tinged slab of indie-rock (featuring production work from FINNEAS), highlighted by an infectious refrain and Ulven tackling her own battles with depression and mental health, topics that come up frequently in her lyrics:

There’s no depth to these feelings
Dig deep, can’t hide
From the corners of my mind
I’m terrified of what’s inside
I get intrusive thoughts like cutting my hands off
Like jumping in front of a bus
Like how do I make this stop
When it feels like my therapist hates me?
