Watch: The Church dusts off songs new and old for 25-minute KEXP live set and interview

Back in September, The Church stopped by the studios of Seattle’s KEXP radio to perform a 25-minute set and interview ahead of its show that night at the Neptune Theater. The radio station has just posted that footage online, and, as you can see below, the band performs two songs off its new album Man Woman Life Death Infinity, as well as a cut off 2006’s Uninvited, Like the Clouds and “Myrrh,” the classic opener from 1985’s Heyday.

Missing from this performance, though, is guitarist Peter Koppes, who did play on The Church’s U.S. tour (including that night in Seattle). No explanation is given for his absence.

Watch the full set below.


Setlist: The Church, KEXP studios, Seattle, WA, 9/9/17

1. “Day 5”
2. “I Don’t Know How I Don’t Know Why”
3. “Another Century”
4. “Myrrh”





  1. Aaron Poehler

    Reportedly, Pete missed the bus.

  2. I saw them live in Pensacola. Fantastic. They put on a better show than bands half their age. Timeless music.

  3. It’s good this stretched-out arrangement of Day 5 actually got a proper recording for posterity, with or with out Koppes. It was a welcome surprise in the tour setlist.

  4. David Bricknell

    Check out and look up this amazing band. You’ll find a discography second only to The Stones for a band reviewed with the most 4 star or above reviews. The Church just keep on delivering incredible space-rock albums back to back. Check out a greatest hits comp and you’ll never look back.

  5. Michael Toland

    I saw them on this tour in Austin and agree that they’re really firing on all cylinders onstage. They even got a little loose and sloppy at the end – not in a “we’ve fucked up” way, but in a “we’re relaxed and having a blast” way. Go see ’em if they come to your town.

  6. The current tour is one of the best that I have seen. The addition of Jeffrey Cain has been a huge improvement. I hope that he stays in the line-up.
