In 2018 Drug Church released their third full-length, 'Cheer,' earning the band new fans and praise from Stereogum, Noisey, Revolver, and more with its explosive blend of aggressive hardcore and massive, '90s alternative indebted hooks. Now the punk rock agitators are premiering their new single 'Bliss Out.' 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.
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.
