Sacramento collective Chrch begin their European tour next week alongside St. Louis doom band, Fister, including performances at Northern Discomfort in Copenhagen and Desertfest in London. See all confirmed dates below. Chrch’s European tour advances the release of their forthcoming second full-length album, Light Will Consume Us All, scheduled for release on the May the 11th via Neurot Recordings.

Standing at a crossroads of light and dark, Chrch layer intricate melodies, thunderous rhythms, gargantuan riffs, and a powerful, supernatural vocal presence, performing with a striking purity and honesty. Their long-form songs build and deconstruct as the band reach sonic highs, and at times, beautiful plateaus, “Portals” is indeed a fine example of this.

Light Will Consume Us All, carries with it the same quality of songwriting that caught the attention of fans worldwide on their debut, Unanswered Hymns (Battleground Records, 2015). Building upon this foundation, the album continues Chrch’s narrative, traversing life’s journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness.
