Chrch share the striking new song “Portals” (alongside an in-depth interview via Metal Hammer from their incoming second full-length album Light Will Consume Us All, now scheduled for release on the 11th of May (Neurot Recordings). About the track, the band comment…””Portals” is a great bridge between our albums. It demonstrates the foundation of our “sound” whilst also showing some of the ways in which our music has evolved. To our mind, it is also a good example of the various of emotions andideas we are exploring with Light Will Consume Us All.”

Standing at a crossroads of light and dark, Chrch layer intricate melodies, thunderous rhythms, gargantuan riffs, and a powerful, supernatural vocal presence, performing with a striking purity and honesty. Their long-form songs build and deconstruct as the band reach sonic highs, and at times, beautiful plateaus, “Portals” is indeed a fine example of this.

Light Will Consume Us All, carries with it the same quality of songwriting that caught the attention of fans worldwide on their debut, Unanswered Hymns (Battleground Records, 2015). Building upon this foundation, the album continues Chrch’s narrative, traversing life’s journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness.There are live dates incoming this month and in support of the album’s release date, those are listed below.

“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
