The next chapter for the church is upon us! We are proud to announce the release of our 25th studio album Further/Deeper. It will be released on October 17 in Aus/NZ with the rest of the world release dates coming soon. It will be available on CD, digital and vinyl.

The only place you can pre-order now is the church merch store. When purchasing the CD or digital album you will receive an download of first taste from the album “Pride Before A Fall” within 48 hours and you will also receive a bonus track of “The Girl Is Buoyant” on 17 October. The vinyl is a double album and comes with a digital download card and contains 3 extra tracks than the CD. The release of Further/Deeper will be followed by live dates where the band will play the new album in full!

Steve Kilbey has also been creating a series of paintings as memes for the albums lyrical themes, some of which will be available to purchase from the merch store. To start with there are 4 available depicting each of the band members. They are high quality prints made with museum grade paper and inks. And there are T-Shirts featuring the album cover and the 4 prints.

Thank you for sharing this journey with us! We are excited for you to hear the new album and we can’t wait to play all of it for you on our upcoming tour. And with that, we bring you Further/Deeper.

    Great, great album! On first listen this appears to be your “Sgt. Pepper’s”. This can be taken many ways, but I meant it in the way the album flows and the strength of the song sequence and build up. The way the album ends is like that hanging piano note from “Day in the Life”. Steve, your vocal delivery sounds youthful! The lyrics are your best. Best song on the album…is Old Coast Road….worth the price of the album….with Lightening White not far behind. Marty will be missed, but it is Peter who is better at setting an atmosphere for the music. Great addition to Pharmakoi. Tim you are right on. Great drumming and effects. I would love to have you explain your drum set up! Ian, you are a great complementary guitarist. The resulting music makes you shine on. Thank you! and thanks to all that made this cd possible!
