CHRCH released their towering Light Will Consume Us All full-length last year via Neurot Recordings. Across the record’s forty-four-minute run time, CHRCH layers intricate melodies, thunderous rhythms, monolithic riffs, and a commanding, supernatural vocal presence, performing with arresting purity and honesty. Their long-form songs build and deconstruct as the band reach sonic highs, and at times, beautiful plateaus. Traversing life’s journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness, the music of CHRCH calls the listener to inhabit it, allowing enough room for its transmutation into anything one desires of it. Light Will Consume Us All was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Patrick Hills (King Woman, Bog Oak, VRTRA) at Earthtone Studios in Sacramento, California.
