CHRCH To Release New Album via Neurot Recordings, plus Artwork and Tour Dates Announced

On April 27th, Sacramento doom lords CHRCH will release new album Light Will Consume Us All via Neurot Recordings. Artwork, track-listing and tour dates have also been announced.



Standing at a crossroads of light and dark, Chrch create epic songs of great depth, layering intricate melodies, thunderous rhythms, gargantuan riffs, and a powerful, supernatural vocal presence. There is no image or gimmick to uphold, only the humble glorification of their fundamental musical elements. Chrch perform with a striking purity and honesty, their long-form songs build and deconstruct as the band reach sonic highs, and at times, beautiful plateaus.

Their second full length, Light Will Consume Us All, carries with it the same quality of songwriting that caught the attention of fans worldwide on their debut, Unanswered Hymns (Battleground Records, 2015). Building upon this foundation, Light Will Consume Us All also continues Chrch’s narrative, traversing life’s journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Patrick Hills (King Woman, Bog Oak, VRTRA) at Earthtone Studios in Rocklin, California, the album exudes a warm, organic tone, with a sound influenced by traditional doom, psych rock, drone, and ambient music. Chrch summon the listener to inhabit their sonic space, allowing enough room for its transmutation into anything one desires of it.

Eternal nineties metal kid from London with a penchant for extreme music and HM-2 clamour. My first-ever gig at the age of sixteen was Napalm Death, At The Gates and Crowbar - a baptism of fire that set in stone a lifelong love of metal and general noisiness. Writing for numerous online publications over the years (including Broken Amp and Cvlt Nation) has now led me to V13 where the adventure will surely continue!
