We've teamed with Drug Church for an exclusive "blood red and black splatter" colored vinyl variant of their new album Hygiene — limited to just 300 copies. Order yours before they're gone!
Back in November, grungey, punky, hardcore-adjacent ruffians Drug Church announced their fourth album, Hygiene, and dropped two fantastic singles that showcased a marked step forward from their excellent 2018 LP, Cheer. Today, (January 11th), they're back with another called "World Impact" that continues in their bold, bright new direction. The instrumentation is louder and boomier, the riffs are catchier and sturdier and Patrick Kindlon's bewitchingly haggard vocal barks are both more accessible and more idiosyncratic than on any of the band's previous material.
Lyrically, Kindlon — who also serves as the frontman of the drifting art-punk collective Self Defense Family — is still fascinated with crafting pathetic scenes of adolescent misfortune and using them as greater metaphors about the internet age's social mores. "Just another school yard beef /Another fight between drug thieves/This one starts and stays ugly/Thirty dollars of steel in his spleen," he spits out with his signature speak-yelp. It's a banger, and you can watch and listen above via YouTube.
Hygiene is out March 11th via Pure Noise Records and Revolver has an exclusive vinyl variant on "blood red with black splatter" wax — limited to 300 worldwide. Order yours from our shop.
