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Self Defense Family, meaning that Drug Church hits the frenetic, witty, snotty, and sarcastic spectrum of punk that originally made End Of A Year so endearing to me.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.  Since forming in 2011, Drug Church have released a self-titled demo in Mach of 2011, a self-titled EP in July of 2012, a ten song LP titled Paul Walker in July of 2013, a five song EP titled Swell in February of 2015,  an eleven song LP titled Hit Your Head in October of 2015, and a ten song LP titled Cheer in November of 2018.  Tawny is the band's latest EP, which was released via Pure Noise Records on June25th, 2021.   On Tawny, Drug Church offer up four tracks of witty, sarcastic, and snotty post hardcore, punk, and indie rock.   Overall, Tawny makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
