Punk rock agitators Drug Church have announced a UK headline tour this summer. As well as touring around the country the band will be playing this year’s 2000 Trees Festival in Cheltenham.
Drug Church are a glorious contradiction. They are an undeniably aggressive band that writes hooks you can’t stop humming: too poppy for the heavy crowd, too heavy for the poppy crowd. Their frontman is a singer who rarely sings and delivers lyrics that revel in the darkest corners of the human condition but are just as likely to make you laugh as they are to make you flinch.
The band released their third full-length album Cheer in November of last year. On Cheer, the band has doubled down on their Drug Church-iest impulses and emerged with an album that’s sure to please long-time fans and turn new heads. If there’s anything intentional about Drug Church, it’s knowing the value of being unintentional.
They loudly shout the uncomfortable truths we prefer to ignore but somehow make us want to shout along with them; they make serious music but don’t take themselves too seriously; they are completely averse to planning but have accidentally built a loyal cult following. You can experience this yourself on the bands UK tour taking place this July.
