West Coast doom-bringers CHRCH have confirmed a two-week summer tour with Portland’s Usnea. The trek, which runs from July 5th in Sacramento, California through July 18th in Denver, Colorado, follows the band’s previously-announced Pacific Northwest mini-tour this June. See all confirmed dates below.

CHRCH‘s latest full-length, the towering Light Will Consume Us All, is out now 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.

CHRCH‘s Light Will Consume Us All is available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Neurot Recordings. For physical order bundles visit THIS LOCATION. The digital edition can be purchased HERE where the record is also streaming in full.

“…a monolithic three track collection that spans forty-five minutes of grim and ambitious noise that will doubtless pound many listeners into submission, in the best possible way.” – Distorted Sound

“Light Will Consume Us All is driven by the fearless self-examination and move-any-mountain heft you’d expect from their hosts. But given the space to unfurl throughout its three, lengthy tracks, this is doom/sludge as psychic potholing, roving from claustrophobic crunch to dazed wonder, poking at deeply buried recesses of the heart and waking sleeping giants that lurk within…” – Metal Hammer

“Their music has toed the line between this sludge-ridden doom and outright funeral doom in the past…Light Will Consume Us All, sees the quintet teeter even further into a realm of dirge and lament.” – Metal Injection
