The Church hit the road in support of album number 26.

Australian indie rock icons The Church release their 26th album Man Woman Life Death Infinity this Friday and they’ve locked in a seven-date tour in support of it kicking off in just over a month.

Man Woman Life Death Infinity is the second album for the band’s refreshed line up, in which Powderfinger axe-slinger Ian Haug replaces founding member Marty Wilson-Piper. Haug has well and truly become a part of the band over the past few years, with hundreds of performances all over the world ensuring the new-look band’s chemistry is well-established.

For this latest album, the band worked on ideas before hitting the studio, which might suggest a new type of focus. Though frontman Steve Kilbey says he’ll continue to learn what the album is all about once the band gets on the road.

“This is an album we’re really looking forward to exploring live,” Kilbey said in a statement announcing the album and tour. “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.”

The Church play the following shows around Australia at the end of this year. Tickets are on sale from Tuesday 10 October.
