New Music Tuesday 23 - Drug Church
Posted by Alex Bohea on March 11, 2014
A weekly feature here at The Great Divide Blog is our New Music Tuesday; introducing you to an artist or band you may not have heard of. We can’t guarantee that you won’t have heard of them, but if that’s the case, it might give you a little reminder to revisit them sometime soon.
This week we’re taking a look at No Sleep Record’s Drug Church. If you don’t know about No Sleep Records, you’re doing it wrong. The label has an incredible line-up and alumni full of punk, emo and everything in between including Moose Blood, Departures, Adventures, Balance and Composure and much more.
Drug Church are a band playing that sound when ‘hardcore-dudes-try-to-play-alt-rock’ liberally pulling influences from bands like Quicksand, Kerosene 454 and Seaweed. What I love about this band is their biography on the No Sleep website which partly reads:
“No heavy trips about how you should live. No white-guy slam poetry about love. Just music you can pushpit and stagedive to so you can forget for a moment that you have eczema and work at Pizza Hut. ACTUAL punk music for ACTUAL disaffected weirdos.”
A great aesthetic for a band if there ever was one. Check out ‘Regarding Youtube Comments’ from their 2013 EP ‘Paul Walker’ below.
