Steve Kilbey and The Church are most known for their classic 1987 hit Under The Milky Way which appeared in the movie Donnie Darko and has been covered by everyone from SIA, The Killers to Rick Springfield!
Glow and Fade is the fifth album from Steve Kilbey (The Church and writer of the iconic song Under The Milky Way) & Martin Kennedy (of Aria nominated soundscapers All India Radio)
The music and artwork of Glow and Fade evoke memories of classic 1970s concept albums and features beautiful other-worldly artwork by UK artist Bruce Pennington famous for his iconic 1960s covers of the Dune book series.
Martin Kennedy’s music has appeared in TV shows including One Tree Hill, CSI: Miami, Bondi Rescue, Julia Zemiro's Home Delivery, the UK’s Emmadale and more
The Church recently completed a sellout USA tour with The Psychedelic Furs, along with performances at SXSW, Primavera Sound in Spain, and their first European tour in eight years.
Reviews from previous album
“Sumptuous meeting of Australian soundscaper and the head Churchman.” - MOJO (4 STARS)
“This is a record of often intricate interlaced layers. Sometimes you can see where they overlap, but often it’s just a liquid whole” - themusic.com.au
“The whole set had a dream like quality to it and with every song, it seemed like the acid trip was getting stronger and the whole crowd were floating on the same pink cloud together.” -thedwarf.com.au
“It’s an abstract work where lightness and shadows collide to make something rather mysterious.” – tonedeaf.com.au
“there’s enough substance here to last any serious music fan a very long time” - Dave DiMartino, Yahoo Music
