We’re pretty big marks for anything and everything to do with Self Defense Family, aka the band that End Of A Year became. We’ve espoused the joy that is Overnight Drive, the podcast made by current and former members of the band. And this week, we’re listening an awful lot to Swell, the new EP from SDF frontman Patrick Kindlon’s side-project, Drug Church. We think you ought to be doing just that too.
Drug Church is an American five-piece hardcore punk / alternative rock band from Albany, United States that formed in 2011. They feature Patrick Kindlon of End of a Year/Self Defense Family on vocals, and also share members with Push-Pit, as well as Self Defense Family.
The band is currently signed to No Sleep Records.
Hardcore plays a much more prominent role in their music than Self Defense Family, with chugging guitar parts with a sound big enough to recall bands such as Quicksand. Read more on Last.fm

Named after the Hollywood star of the same name, the title Drug Church have chosen for their debut full-length proves to be an extremely apt one, as, like Walker’s most famous film role, this is fast and indeed, furious. The Albany, NY quintet, who feature Patrick Kindlon of Self Defense Family (formerly known as End of a Year), will strike a chord with those who still hold a torch for 90s grunged-up post-hardcore.
