Attention all music lovers! The Church, the psych-guitar masters, are teaming up with The Afghan Whigs for an unforgettable summer tour, and they’re making a stop at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall on June 24. If you’re a fan of dreamy, psychedelic rock with a narrative twist, this is one concert you won’t want to miss.

The tour supports The Church’s newly released album, Eros Zeta and the Perfumed Guitars, which hit the shelves on March 29, 2024. This album is a continuation of their critically acclaimed 2023 album, The Hypnogogue. Eros Zeta picks up the dystopian storyline of a failed rockstar, Eros Zeta, who tries to reclaim his faded glory through the use of a dream extractor, the Hypnogogue. The album has been creating quite a buzz, with its singles “Realm of Minor Angels” and “A Strange Past” receiving praise for their intricate compositions and haunting lyrics.

The Church, known for their ethereal soundscapes and poetic lyrics, have been creating music for over four decades. Their impressive discography, approaching 30 albums, continues to evolve, proving that they are as creatively vibrant as ever. Their latest albums have been hailed as some of their best work, with SPIN naming The Hypnogogue one of the year’s best albums and The Arts STL praising its innovative spirit.

Joining them on this tour are The Afghan Whigs, another band with a storied history and a reputation for powerful live performances. Together, these two bands promise an evening of immersive, otherworldly music that will transport you to new dimensions.

Tickets for this not-to-be-missed event start at $45 and are available now at Danforth Music Hall Tickets. Be sure to grab yours soon, as this show is likely to sell out fast. Whether you’re a long-time fan of The Church or new to their hypnotic sounds, this concert is set to be a highlight of the summer music scene.

So, mark your calendars for June 24 and get ready to experience the magic of The Church and The Afghan Whigs live in Toronto. It’s going to be a night filled with enchanting melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, and an atmosphere that only legends like The Church can create. Don’t miss out on this unique musical journey. See you there!
