Beloved punk rock agitators, Drug Church, recently announced their highly anticipated fourth full-length, Hygiene, due out 11th March from Pure Noise Records. Today the band are sharing another new single “World Impact” alongside an in-depth interview profile on Stereogum.
Drug Church are one of the most singular bands in modern guitar music and on Hygiene the band’s uncompromising nature has resulted in a bold leap forward. The Albany and Los Angeles-based five-piece—vocalist Patrick Kindlon, guitarists Nick Cogan and Cory Galusha, bassist Pat Wynne, and drummer Chris Villeneuve—have a unique ability to make distinctly outsider music that’s also welcoming and instantly satisfying, as evidenced by Hygiene‘s lead singles “Million Miles of Fun” and “Detective Lieutenant.” which earned praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Stereogum, The FADER, Revolver, BrooklynVegan, Paste, and more. The band’s sound hinges on a tension between overt melody and visceral aggression, and “World Impact” highlights the latter with a towering riff and Kindlon’s searing vocals.
