On Monday, March 13th @ 6:30PM, Jack The Stripper speaks with bassist, vocalist and founder Steve Kilbey of long standing Australian band, The Church. Catch the group live on Tuesday, March 14th at the Great American Music Hall in SF.
Starting out in 1980, The Church have continued to expand their highly cinematic and atmospheric blend of indie rock, shimmering post-punk, icy dream pop and psychedelic post-rock without any retread.
Their expansive music career yielded a string of hit songs including “Under the Milky Way,” “Reptile,” “The Unguarded Moment” and “Almost With You” amongst others and their equally stellar live shows have been deemed “spectacular” by MAGNET Magazine, citing their “dreamy psychedelia that will daub your evening with shades of paisley.”
The Church’s 26th album The Hypnogogue was recently released via Communicating Vessels and according to Kilbey, “This album is the most prog rock thing we have ever done. We’ve also never had a concept album before,” he says. “It is the most teamwork record we have ever had. Everyone in the band is so justifiably proud of this record and everyone helped to make sure it was as good as it could be. Personally, I think it’s in our top three records.
