The Church Biogaphy
One of Australia’s most influential bands, Sydney quartet The Church emerged from the post-punk
era but went onto achieve cult fame with a lush blend of psychedelia, dream pop and prog-rock.
Formed in 1980, the group eventually settled on the core line-up of lead vocalist Steve Kilbey,
guitarists Peter Koppes and Marty Willson-Piper and drummer Richard Ploog following the release of
their debut album, Of Skins and Heart. Having built up a large following on their hometown’s live
circuit, the band then released The Church tickets for their first European tour in 1982 to support
sophomore, The Blurred Crusade. After adding to their catalog with 1983’s Séance and 1984’s
Remote Luxury, the group increased the demand for The Church tickets across North America when
1985’s more organic Heyday gave them a first Billboard 200 entry. Sales of The Church tickets
continued to grow in 1988 when sixth LP, Starfish, spawned a US Top 40 single in the shape of
“Under The Milky Way.” Following 1990’s Gold Afternoon Fix, the group recorded their most
critically-acclaimed effort to date, 1992’s Priest=Aura, and filmed a live concert video in front of fans
with The Church tickets at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre. 1994’s Sometime Anywhere proved to be the
group’s last major-label release in the US, but the group remained a popular live draw throughout
the remainder of the decade, selling out The Church tickets for shows supporting 1996’s Magician
Among the Spirits and 1998’s self-produced Hologram of Baal. After tackling songs by the likes of
Iggy Pop, The Monkees and Ultravox on covers album, A Box of Birds, the group took a hiatus to
pursue various side projects. But they returned in 2002 with After Everything Now This, and The
Church tickets for an accompanying tour, and went onto release a prolific nine albums over the next
seven years including 2004 acoustic collection, El Momento Descuidado, 2005 jam session Back with
Two Beasts, and the 2008 soundtrack to a short film based on sci-fi writer Jeff Vandermeer’s book,
Shriek: An Afterword. In 2010, they celebrated their 30th anniversary with the release of The Church
tickets for a North American tour dubbed An Intimate Space, and performed a ‘Psychedelic
Symphony’ at the Sydney Opera House. Following a joint tour with Simple Minds, Devo and Models,
the band released their first album with new guitarist Ian Haug, Further/Deeper, in 2014, and The
Church tickets for a tour across the US and Canada.
