Church, 170 Russell – 1st December 2017
The band are taking their album “Man Woman Life Death Infinity” with the rejuvenated line-up – Steve Kilbey, Peter Koppes, Tim Powles and Ian Haug – on tour this November/December. “This is an album we’re really looking forward to exploring live,” Steve says. “The way I write lyrics is very stream-of-consciousness. I never question them until we perform live, so I discover them in time as much as the audience.” Woven with classics spanning almost 50 years of underground glory, the set will feature the Australian debut of selections from Man Woman Life Death Infinity,.
Singer, lyricist and bassist Kilbey explains this 26th album from the ARIA Hall of Famers is what he terms the band’s “water record” — “I guess water is my element,” he notes. “I’ve always marveled at the sea and rivers and rain. It wasn’t conscious at all but on reflection, it definitely is a preoccupation on this record.”
The Church were joined onstage by special guest, former Remy Zero (UK) guitarist Jeffrey Cain on keys, additional guitars and vocals.
