Drug Church Premiere New Song “Bliss Out”

In 2018 Drug Church released their third full-length, Cheer, earning the band new fans and acclaim from Stereogum, Noisey, Revolver, and more with its explosive blend of aggressive hardcore and massive, ’90s alternative indebted hooks. Now the punk rock agitators have teamed with FLOOD Magazine to premiere their new single “Bliss Out” and mark their upcoming North American tour with Thrice and mewithoutYou. Recorded during the Cheer sessions, “Bliss Out” offers crushingly catchy guitars and stomping rhythm over which vocalist Patrick Kindlon roars his sardonic and intensely human lyrics. FLOOD praised the song’s music and lyrics saying, “It’s as cathartic as it is relatable…”

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. 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 adverse to planning but have accidentally built a loyal cult following.

Drug Church’s North American tour with Thrice, mewithoutYou, and Holy Fawn starts this week with select headlining dates throughout. See full itinerary below.
“Bliss Out” is out now via Pure Noise Records. The band is available for interviews. Please email james@letsgopublicity.com.
