Today, goth-pop darling Allie X will announce her highly anticipated new album,
Cape God. An electric moment for the singer, this is her most radical and
powerful album yet. Filled with emotional vibratos and captivating lyrics, the
album touches on the nature of identity and what it truly means to be an outsider.
The album features long-time friend and collaborator Troye Sivan for the song
Love Me Wrong, which has already hit over one million listens on Spotify alone,
and features a collaboration with beloved singer and songwriter Mitski.
For the first time ever, Allie X will also announce her first major headline tour
which includes shows in North America and Europe, with tickets available for pre-
sale (Link to D2C Store). Cape God will be available for pre-order on December
16th and the full album will officially release in February 2020.

old and new.

and aesthetic beauty to tell my story, and thus Cape God was born. If I had to
make a mission statement for this record I would say: Cape God is a liminal
