The Church

Recently inducted into the Australian Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, The Church will revisit two of their most successful releases and their most recent LP Untitled #23 as part of a 30th Anniversary US tour in February. The 2009 LP as well as 1992's Priest=Aura and 1988's Starfish will be performed in their entirety at each show on the tour which includes two NYC shows: Feb 16th at Highline Ballroom (tickets) and Feb 17th at B.B. King's (tickets). All dates below.

The Church has been churning out new material since the 80's and their latest is the Deadman's Hand EP, which dropped this year. And by the time these shows comes, "reissues of the band's early albums will also finally be available in the USA alongside contemporary releases, all on the Second Motion Entertainment label. The reissues will come in luxurious digi-packs with rare photos and exhaustive sleeve notes written by Marty Willson-Piper."

Stream the new EP in full and check out all tour dates below.

WHOA! These are gonna be great shows with um, long setlists if I'm reading that right? Three full albums in one night!

Sounds "Devine"! I got a "confession" though I don't own manby of their albums. So I should buy them and stop this "nun"sense. I know it is a bad "habit". I don't know why the never appealed to the "mass"es? They just didn't "cross" over in popularity. I know I am "preaching" to the "choir"!

Three albums in a night!?!?! Man, I was depressed I missed last year's electric show; now, not so much, this seems so much better.

anon 12:15 - i think anon 12:04 has a point. it's rather price-y for the non mega fan. kind of a bummer.

Why pay $40 to go to church? I can worship god in my apartment...

The Church have plenty of 'mega-fans' to fill this up without worrying about the casual fan. And $40 is totally worth it for this. It would be worth it to me just for Untitled #23 alone. Still wish they'd pick Heyday or Blurred Crusade over Starfish - but this will rule regardless.

The Church were just inducted into the Aria (Australian Record Industry Association) Hall of Fame - very well deserved. They are also going to play at the Sydney Opera House and are currently on a sold out tour in OZ. People, you really can't miss this U.S. tour.

PLEASE add more dates.

One of the more underrated bands of the past couple of decades, I'd say.

seeing a consistent and relitively unique band like the Church for forty bucks is worthwhile for even a casual fan...small user freindly venues usually are better than even the most impressive enormodome...looking fowaed to foxboro gig.
