‘There She Is‘ (listen to the band version here) is taken from the upcoming retrospective compilation, ‘Songbook‘ – out later this month and available to pre-order now in Deluxe Boxset, 3 x LP, Deluxe CD & Digitally [Here].
‘Songbook‘ features this brand new song, ‘There She Is‘, alongside select cuts from across his discography on one disc, with the other disc containing reworked versions of some of fan favourite tracks. The deluxe edition features exclusive photos, the film ‘Get Better‘, and a previously unreleased concert film of his 2000th gig at Rock City in Nottingham from December last year.
Check out the acoustic clip below.
Joining the ride is Adelaide’s thrash bangers Hidden Intent. Like the riotous music they play, the band have been carving their way through the masses with their unabashedly unapologetic ‘80s-throwback thrash metal, a form of music that wholly embraces its American and European roots in the Bay Area, Scandinavian and Teutonic thrash scenes.
Dates and venues below.

Singer Patrick comments;
“Drug Church is proud to announce it’s birthed another alt-rock classic in the form of the new single ‘Weed Pin.’ The track is a mid-tempo monster jam about being unhireable. Recorded with Jon Markson, ‘Weed Pin’ is a taste of what listeners will be getting on the band’s first LP from Pure Noise Records.“
Following a mid-80s blueprint of moving to LA to be sucked into the fast life, Drug Church has left its Albany origins in the rearview. Now experiencing the inability to make rent on a whole new level, the band is producing its best material to date.
Listen to the new song below.
Bringing together a summation of experiences and moments in history from a small slice of the rich DIY punk scene on the east coast of Australia from 2007-2017.
The book can be ordered now [Here].
It will be launched across Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November at 21 Maude Lane, Marrickville with a photo exhibition by Marnie Vaughn, Alisha Bourke and ZakZak.
Artists playing on the Saturday include Jess Locke, Crab Smasher, New Seddon Dads, Clean Shirt and Naif from 6pm, while on the Sunday from 4pm it’ll be Michael Crafter, March Of The Real Fly, No Doz and Flat Earth.
7 years since the band’s conception, Medusa’s Gaze have taken their time to hone their craft, drawing influence from Trivium, Machine Head, Opeth & Nevermore.
‘Rise Of The Gorgon‘ will be available in CD format along with T-shirts from their Bigcartel site, digital download from Bandcamp & streaming from all the usual outlets.
Furthermore, the band will celebrate the release of the album with a live performance at Tetsuo NC in Perth from 8pm on the day of release, Friday December 1st with Nucleust, Sheol of Abaddon & Banyon in support. Event information is [Here].
Plans are in place to take the album live across Australia in 2018. Listen to the track ‘Beyond The Gallows‘ below.
