Chvrches lead singer Lauren Mayberry tells The Houston Press “It’s spooky season all year round.” If you’re thinking that you should be brushing up on the horror classics ahead of the performance just so you’re in the right frame of mind for what Chvrches is ready to unleash, you’re in luck. She says it will help you ‘Not get creeped out during the show.” She recommends watching the horror movies ‘Carrie’, ‘Hellraiser’, ‘Halloween’ and ‘Videodrome’ before seeing the band on their ‘Screen Violence’ tour. Screen Violence is not a record about horror films, but it is a record steeped in horror imagery. There are repeated mentions of blood, guts, and drowning. There are frequent hints of something sinister just outside the frame. Mayberry says “I’ve seen the visuals and I will need to not get creeped out during the show”
