Drug Church announces new EP and releases new video

Drug Church has premiered a new video today on SPIN, as well as announced a new EP which is currently up for preorder.

Drug Church is one of my favorite bands that happens to be from the Albany area. It’s a pretty refreshing take on as it’s grounded in hardcore but often goes on tangents in an interesting, great way. Go check the new video and grab the EP on vinyl before it’s sold out.
