Everyone’s favorite punk rock agitators, Drug Church, have returned! Today the band have announced their highly anticipated fourth full-length, Hygiene, that is due out on March 11th from Pure Noise RecordsDrug Church are one of the most singular bands in modern guitar music and on Hygiene the band’s uncompromising nature has resulted in a bold leap forward.

The Albany and Los Angeles-based five-piece have a unique ability to make distinctly outsider music that’s also welcoming and instantly satisfying, as evidenced by Hygiene‘s lead singles, Million Miles of Fun and Detective Lieutenant. The two songs represent the essential tension between overt melody and visceral aggression that fuels Drug Church, the former pushing the band’s seamless blend of hardcore bite and massive, ’90s-indebted hooks to its most anthemic point, while the latter shows off a level of tunefulness never before seen in their catalog.

Hygiene follows Drug Church‘s 2018 LP, Cheer, and their 2021 EP, Tawny, and immediately makes it clear that the band aren’t content to rest on their laurels. The record builds on the most melodic moments of Drug Church‘s past work without losing any of the combustable energy that has made them so appealing to fans of both heavy and hooky music. Drug Church will be touring heavily in support of Hygiene, starting with a lengthy run of North American shows kicking off this week with Citizen, Glitterer and Floating Room.

You can pre-order Hygiene via Pure Noise Records and you can stream Million Miles of Fun and Detective Lieutenant via Spotify
