Drug Church is a five piece band from Albany, NY who formed in the spring of 2011.  Drug Church features members of Self Defense Family, which for most of you, is pretty much a household name in the punk/hardcore scene at this point.  The thing I love most about Drug Church is that they pretty much carry the torch that was originally ignited by End Of The Year before they morphed into Self Defense Family, meaning that Drug Church hits the frenetic, witty, snotty, and sarcastic spectrum of punk that originally made End Of A Year so endearing to me.  With that said, that description pretty much only scratches the surface of describing Drug Church's sound.  Drug Church also adds a healthy dose of dark punk, post hardcore, and indie rock that gives nods to bands such as Jawbreaker, Quicksand, Seaweed, and other like-minded bands.  Hit Your Head is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via No Sleep Records on October 30th 2015 and also released on vinyl on January 1st 2016.  On Hit Your Head, Drug Church offer up eleven tracks of witty, sarcastic, and snotty post hardcore, punk, and indie rock.  Hit Your Head totally resonates with me on so many levels, that it's scary.  Hit Your Head does two things for me: It makes me realize how shitty things can be for people, simultaneously makes me want to check myself into rehab, yet gives me enough hope to realize that my futile existence is worthwhile if I surround myself with the right people and enough beer to keep my mind numb.  Overall, Hit Your Head is probably one of the best albums of 2015.  Don't sleep on this one.
