Lauren Mayberry and Iain Cook were guests on Radcliffe and Maconie's 6 Music show, where they revealed some of the band names they rejected before settling on Chvrches. The options included:
Lovely Owl... With the band currently on a massive, sold-out tour, they haven't had time to appear in the video for Empty Threat - which is instead a sort of Winona-Ryder-from-Heathers-visits-a-water-park tale of youthful rebellion. It's no Dazed and Confused, but the song is still a 9 out of 10.
- Wooden Churches
- Burning Churches
- Screen Violence
- Lovely Owl.
