CHRCH “Unanswered Hymns” Live at Roadburn 2016

This majestic footage of CHRCH at this year’s Roadburn gives me chills! If you are an avid reader of CVLT Nation, then you know that we have been HUGE fans of this band since we first heard them. I’m almost at a loss for words to express how fucking happy we are for them – it makes us so stoked to see humans get to do what they love for a global audience. I want to say nuff respect to Jay over at Transylvanian Tapes for releasing Unanswered Hymns on cassette, which was followed by the vinyl treatment handled by Battleground Records! I remember the day as I was trolling twitter and saw Kim Kelly say that an amazing band named CHURCH (I’m pretty sure they were opening for YOB) blew her mind – it was the first I heard of them. From that moment, I did what I had to do to find out more about them, and they did not disappoint. Unanswered Hymns is American Doom classic, and if you don’t have it you should do your best to get it! Thank you so much to Frank Huang, aka Pit Full of Shit, for capturing this beyond stellar live footage. Respect due to the whole Roadburn crew for creating such an awesome platform for the music we all LOVE! I can smell the weed smoke coming out of the screen!
