Japan‘s CHURCH OF MISERY is preparing to release their fourth full-length album. Thy Kingdom Scum will be released in North America via Metal Blade Records/Rise Above Records on June 11. The first single from the album, as well as the brand new video for Brother Bishop, are both streaming now at metalblade.com/churchofmisery.
Thy Kingdom Scum was written and recorded by Tatus Mikami, Junji Narita, Ikume Kawabe, and Hideki Fukasawa. In 2012, after the departure vocalist Yoshiaki Negishi, Tatsu and Junji contacted the previous singer Hideki, and they decided on a reunion. Additionally, the band added guitarist Ikuma Kawabe (ex-DHIDALAH) in late May 2012.With this new line-up, they started writing and recording the new record.
After the release of Houses Of The Unholy in 2009, CHURCH OF MISERY continued to visit western countries, and embarked on several fantastic tours: Europe with EYEHATEGOD, Maryland Death Fest X, and a headlining US tour with The Gates of Slumber and Hail!Hornet. Plans are currently in motion for more touring in support of Thy Kingdom Scum. Updates will be posted to churchofmisery.net and metalblade.com/churchofmisery as they are made available.
