The Church 2022 Australia Tour

The Church tour Australia September 2022. The Church tour Australia September 2022.

Four years since they last toured nationally, seminal psych-guitar masters The Church will return to the road for a six-date run in September.

Now entering their fourth decade, the ARIA Hall of Fame inductees are fresh from a US tour that included an invitation from Coachella's promoter, Golden Voice to perform at their inaugural Cruel World Festival.

Led by founder, vocalist and bassist Steve Kilbey, the current incarnation of The Church features long-time collaborator TimEbandit Powles (drummer and producer across 17 albums), guitarist Ian Haug (formerly of Powderfinger) and Jeffrey Cain (Remy Zero), who's now a full-time member since the departure of Peter Koppes in early 2020.

The band have also recruited guitarist Ashley Naylor (Even, The Grapes, The Stems), a long-time member of Paul Kelly's touring band.

This tour, which visits Perth, Margaret River, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, will see The Church perform two distinct sets.

First a taste of new songs from the band's forthcoming 26th studio album, 'The Hypnogogue', as well as performing their hit songs across their expansive music career: 'Under The Milky Way', 'Reptile', 'The Unguarded Moment' and 'Almost With You'.

"A band is like a family and over 40 years it is only natural that families will change," Kilbey says.

"It's too big a body of work not to keep exploring it. It's a psychedelic walk down memory lane from a band that spans four decades – and continues to create thought-provoking music in the millennium."

Tickets on sale from 12pm (local time) on 21 June.
