RELEASE DATE: 3/11/22
Everyone's favorite punk rock agitators, Drug Church, have returned! The band announced their highly anticipated fourth full-length, Hygiene, due out March 11th from Pure Noise Records. 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. Hygiene follows Drug Church's 2018 LP, Cheer, and their 2021 EP, Tawny, both of which drew acclaim from fans and critics alike (including attention from the likes of Stereogum, Noisey, NPR, Revolver, BrooklynVegan, and more), and immediately makes it clear that the band aren't content to rest on their laurels. The record builds on the most melodic moments of Drug Church's past work without losing any of the combustable energy that has made them so appealing to fans of both heavy and hooky music. Throughout the album Kindlon's lyrics are as incisive as ever. He walks a tightrope between observation, honesty, frustration, and humor—wading into the absurdity of modern life; the relationships between art and the people consuming it; and the primacy of following your own path—and somehow achieves a tone that's as blunt as it is nuanced. The result is an album that captures a band truly at the top of their game, and demands conversations and stage dives in equal measure.
This exclusive vinyl variant is 160g on “blood red with black splatter” colored wax. Hygiene is limited to only 300 copies, so order yours today!
