Drug Church Share Pummeling Track Avoidarama From New Album 'Cheer'

Thursday, 02 August 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

The blurb accompanying Drug Church's new LP 'Cheer' says the New York punks are "too poppy for the heavy crowd, too heavy for the poppy crowd". It's not wrong.

On new track Avoidarama the band expertly mix chugging guitars, meaty grung-derived riffs and frontman Patrick Kindlon's gruff melodies. It is the second taste of 'Cheer', which is due to arrive on November 2 through Pure Noise Records, following up 2015's 'Hit Your Head'.

The song's video was directed by Ian Shelton and stars Brian Murray and Gary Cotti alongside the band's guitarist, Nick Cogan. The clip revolves around a man who plays dead in order to avoid awkward situations. 

Drug Church, meanwhile, are on tour in the US throughout August with Can't Swim, and will return to the UK in September to support Boston Manor on their headline run. Microwave and Wallflower will also open.

'Cheer' tracklist:

1. Grubby
2. Strong References
3. Avoidarama
4. Dollar Story
5. Unlicensed Guidance Counselor
6. Weed Pin
7. Unlicensed Hall Monitor
8. Foam Pit
9. Conflict Minded
10. Tillary

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.
