Island Records artist Bishop Briggs, who has amassed over 400 million global streams and soared to #3 on the Alternative chart with her massive RIAA gold single ‘River’, releases her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Church of Scars’. Following her electrifying recent performances on American Idol as part of their all-star duets round, Bishop performed her defiant new single ‘White Flag’ on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night. Watch that performance below.

“I am so proud to be sharing my first ever album, ‘Church of Scars’, with all of you. The title came from the track ‘Hallowed Ground’ and it was a lyric that said, “my heart is a church of scars”. It had to be the album title because it’s how I felt while creating what you are about to hear. It was about being unafraid of those wounds. So, with that being said, I hope you feel less alone by hearing this album.” – Bishop Briggs

‘Church of Scars’, the highly anticipated debut album from Bishop Briggs out, features career catapulting singles ‘River’ and ‘Wild Horses’ as well as ‘White Flag’ and ‘Lyin” featuring Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons. The final tracklist is as follows:

1. Tempt My Trouble
2. River
3. Lyin’
4. White Flag
5. Dream
6. Wild Horses
7. Hallowed Ground
8. Water
9. The Fire
10. Hi-Lo (Hollow)

Bishop Briggs’ single ‘White Flag’ is approaching top 25 at Alternative radio with support from Sirius XM Alt Nation, KROQ and Alt 98.7 in Los Angeles, Alt 92.3 in New York City and many others.

Affirming her exploding fan base, Bishop Briggs has added additional Summer dates to her nearly sold out headlining North American tour, which kicks off next Friday, April 27, at Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, one week after the release of ‘Church of Scars’. The tour of the US and Canada will make stops at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on May 4 and Brooklyn Steel in New York on May 22.
