The magnificent The Church have announced the resumption of normal services with the announcement of new dates for a US tour. Originally set to celebrate 40 years of music in 2020 and inevitably postponed due to – well, you know what – the band has set new dates on the brink of the release of a new album.
The Church will play a run of west coast dates leading into their performance at Cruel World Fest alongside an unbelievable lineup of contemporaries including Blondie, Devo, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Psychedelic Furs.
This off the back of year of intensive creativity for Steve Kilbey, receiving accolades for a number of stunning releases last year (see our list of top releases for 2021 both in Australia and globally).
Kilbey acknowledges the importance of the US to the band:
American audiences have always been extremely important to the Church after 40 years of touring.
