Australian rock band The Church play the Royal Oak Music Theatre as part of their U.S. Summer tour. The concert is on Saturday, August 22, at 7:30 p.m. on a dual tour with the U.K. band The Psychedelic Furs.
The band started making music in the early '80s and first gained attention in the U.S. for the song "Unguarded Moment" from their debut album. The 1983 album "Seance" had our own Creem magazine singing their praises and hailed the band as "one of the best in the world". The band may be best known here for their late '80s hit songs "Under The Milky Way," or the song "Reptile," both off the 1988 album "Starfish". But The Church is not just on a "retro tour" as the band has continued to produce music over the past decades and this year celebrates their 35th anniversary!
They have just released their 21st studio album "Further/Deeper" in the fall of 2014. They are touring throughout Europe and the U.S. in 2015 to promote the twelve new songs as well as old favorites. They promise to include some "surprising choices from their 35 year catalog" on this tour which will surely please longtime fans of the band.
This is the first time the two post-punk, neo-psychedelic bands have shared a bill after an attempt at a dual tour in 1988 fell thru. But while The Psychedelic Furs have continued to tour playing their hits, they have not released any new material since the 1991 album "The World Outside." Not content to rest on their laurels, The Church have not only produced a current album but a video for the song "Laurel Canyon."
