The Church releasing new LP, touring in 2015 including NYC and SXSW (dates, LP stream)
Australian alt/psych greats The Church -- still the core of
Marty Wilson-Piper, Peter Koppes and Steve Kilbey -- will release their 25th (!) album, Further/Deeper, in North America on February 23. The album was released last month in Australia and you can stream it below.
UPDATE: Marty Wilson-Piper is not on the the new album (the first one not to feature him) and has been replaced by Powderfinger guitarist Ian Haug.
The band will be coming over to tour around the album's release with two shows in NYC: Bowery Ballroom on March 13 and Rough Trade on March 14. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale Friday (11/21) at noon, with an AmEx presale for the Bowery show beginning at noon on Wednesday (11/19). Shortly after those two shows, The Church head to Austin for SXSW. All dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...
