CHVRCHES’ “Every Open Eye” debuts with 34,214 sold in it's first week, and 37,888 overall consumption. The album is the the #1 Alternative Album, #8 overall album on the Billboard 200, #7 Current Album, and the #1 Rock Album. The band is currently on their North American tour.

Every Open Eye is the follow up to the band's breakthrough debut album The Bones of What You Believe, which was released in autumn 2013 to widespread critical acclaim and went on to sell over 500,000 copies worldwide. Late last year Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and Lauren Mayberry returned to their own Alucard Studios - a converted flat on the southside of Glasgow where their stunning debut was conceived - and began developing ideas they had recorded in venues during their time on the road. The band found riffs, loops and melodies they wanted to develop or started from scratch on the synths, pads and machines they had been gathering in their basement to create the instrumentals of the songs. Vocal melodies were developed as the songs took shape with the lyrics added last, developed from words and sentences from notebooks Mayberry had kept on tour.
