This Friday marks the official release of Light Will Consume Us All, the second full-length from Sacramento, California-based collective Chrch.
Vice’s music portal, Noisey, is currently streaming the record in advance of its release noting, ”At its core, Chrch stands as a beacon representing the war between dark and light that exists within the world, ourselves, and any great tale—and the ultimate triumph of the light that awaits if one is patient. Take that as a metaphor, and you’ll find the optimism that good will eventually triumph over evil. Take it literally and you’ll face the fact that, no matter what, the earth will ultimately be destroyed by the sun as the hydrogen fuel in its core depletes, forcing it to expand into an unrelenting red giant…”
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.
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.
