HYPNOGOGUE (GOLD VINYL)
Few bands enter their fifth decade of making music with all the fierce creative energy of their early years. Few bands can boast 26 studio albums. Few bands are like The Church. This month, the ARIA Hall of Fame inductees share their highly anticipated 26th studio album The Hypnogogue. Along with their latest cinematic record release, The Church are celebrating 43 years since formation, embarking on an extensive world tour performing new music and songs from their 26 album career. The Australian leg of the world tour will come off the back of a 21 city, six week US tour and will stop at eight cities across the country, including Brisbane, Gold Coast, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle. A monumental concept album, The Church hone in on their bespoke sound in The Hypnogogue without retreading creative steps. The record features recently released singles "The Hypnogogue", "C'est La Vie" and "No Other You", offering a pool of melancholy tones and psychedelic swells, transporting listeners to another realm, guided by its striking science fiction narrative.
