About Drug Church

Drug Church is an American post-hardcore band from Albany, New York, United States. The band has released four albums, as well as several EPs. Drug Church started as a side project for singer Patrick Kindlon of Self Defense Family. After having released a three-song demo online in 2011, the band got signed by No Sleep Records by the beginning of 2012. The band’s original lineup included Patrick Kindlon, guitarist Nick Cogan, bassist Cory Galusha, and drummer Chris Villeneuve. Their debut EP, Swell, was released in 2012, and it received critical acclaim for its raw and aggressive sound. This early work laid the foundation for Drug Church’s growing reputation as an innovative and exciting band in the punk and hardcore scenes.

Drug Church’s debut full-length album, Paul Walker was released in 2013 and was well received by music critics. The band’s sophomore album, “Hit Your Head,” released in 2015, continued to push the boundaries of their sound and featured lyrics that explored social and personal issues with a unique blend of wit and introspection.

In 2018, Drug Church signed with Pure Noise Records released their third album, Cheer which demonstrated the band’s willingness to experiment with different styles such as grunge while retaining their punk ethos. The album received praise for its introspective and honest lyrics, as well as its willingness to tackle complex themes.[1]

The band’s fourth album Hygiene was announced on November 10, 2021 with the release of the singles “Miles of Fun” and “Detective Lieutenant”, and was released on March 11, 2022 through Pure Noise Records.[2] On March 1, 2023, the band released the single Myopic through Pure Noise Records.
