The Church return in 2009 with a new album, a soundtrack, 2 EP’s on their own label and selected dates on the East coast.
In January the band released the “Shriek: Excerpts From The Soundtrack” on their own Unorthodox Records in partnership with Wyrm publishing and noted American science fiction writer Jeff VanderMeer.
In February the band release “The Coffee Hounds EP”. Exclusive vocal and instrumental versions of “The Coffee Song” as well as taking on the Kate Bush classic “Hounds Of Love”.
Unorthodox Records will release the new album “Untitled #23” through MGM in March to coincide with Australian dates. The album will feature 10 tracks of thoughtful simplistic epics, unusual in its ability to be simultaneously dark and accessible. An irresistibly melodic album, dense, psychedelic, yet emotive and personal. Set in a lush soundscape carved out of another world, the band has succeeded in creating a listenable work of art, meshing guitars and rhythms into a sonic journey of intrigue and understanding. They will also release the 4 Track “Pangaea EP” that will include 3 tracks not on the album including “So Love May Find Us” a musical exploration in a heavenly, engaging 15 minutes of bliss.
“So Love May Find Us” Tour Special Guests: ASTREETLIGHTSONG. In Sydney BLACKCHORDS will also be joining them.
