This is sad news:
I don't have anything to add. I was tremendously pleased to see the last tour in April 2019 in Houston, Texas and it was such a well-played show.
There was a real chemistry between everyone on stage and I remember saying at the time, it would be great if Jeffrey Cain were a full member.
Whatever the configuration, the Church is a band that does not fade into the sunset. It is an evolving and changing thing, and it will be worth checking out.
We should all remember that the door for this band is a revolving one. There's nothing that says that past members can't come back and that new members can't come into the mix. To be honest with you, it's not even about who's in the band. It's entirely about the songs. The Say Lou Lou version of Under the Milky Way is exactly what I'm talking about. It's not done by "The Church" but it damned sure is entirely of that body of work.
