Listen: The Church, ‘Undersea’ — second single off ‘Man Woman Life Death Infinity’

With their North American tour now underway, The Church have released the second single off Man Woman Life Death Infinity — the band’s 26th studio album, which is due to be released on Oct. 6. You can stream the new song, titled “Undersea,” in its entirety below.

The forthcoming album, the band’s follow-up to 2014’s Further/Deeper, is the second featuring the lineup of Steve Kilbey, Peter Koppes, Tim Powles and Ian Haug in the wake of Marty Willson-Piper’s departure from the group after in 2013 after 33 years.

Of the new album, Koppes says:

“Music is like inner space and we’re astronauts.  It’s a spellbinding thing. It’s hypnotizing. That’s why people like it. It takes them into another world and we’re here to open those doors.”

Adds Kilbey:

“This is The Church’s water record. I guess water is my element. 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. What that means, I don’t know.”

The band’s fall North American tour, featuring special guests The Helio Sequence, opened last week in Portland, Ore., and continue down the West Coast, through Texas and into eastern parts of the U.S., wrapping up Oct. 14 in Phoenix.

    Steve Kilbey is an amazing multi-faceted talent. Superlative vocalist, lyricist and musician. Has created so many great albums with the Church in addition to his exemplary records with Kilbey/Kennedy and Isidore.
