CHVRCHES will release their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, September 24 in the U.S. via Glassnote. Abroad, the record will drop the day before supported by Virgin/Goodbye. Though not much else is known about the release, it's expected to include the titular song from the March Recover EP, 2012's "The Mother We Share" (stream that below), and the previously release single "Gun," which now has a video to accompany it.

In the new clip above, the Scottish This Is Happening stars get the kaleidoscopic treatment. Singer Lauren Mayberry and production pair Iain Cook and Martin Doherty (plus a small army of dancers) are doubled and tripled, beamed across the screen, shrunken, distorted, and color-damaged — essentially made into living, performing art. As Pitchfork reports, "Gun" will be pressed to pink vinyl for U.K. fans on July 15.

Meanwhile, "The Mother We Share" will be released as the next official U.S. single on June 18. Stream that here, and check tour dates below.
