The Lord works in mysterious ways. Or so the saying goes, but there is nothing mysterious about the rise of the fabulously original entertainment phenomenon that is - Oh My God! It’s The Church. Quite simply they have had a monumental few years traversing the globe conducting their all singing, all dancing, party church service to hundreds of thousands of gleeful sinners. Recently you may have caught them closing ShangriHell at Glastonbury or found them sharing stages all over the world with the likes of Mark Ronson, Idles, Robyn, Fat White Family, Beth Ditto, Craig Charles and many, many more.
After building up a large fanbase of “Missionaries” mainly through word-of-mouth after stellar festival performances and several wild tours, soon the band were disrupting the airwaves with their truly joyous hymns with inaugural record ‘Genesis’ providing the first glimpse inside the Oh My God! It's The Church Universe. Wildly original singles such as ‘PREACHIN’, and '(Where Did You Get Those) Shoes?' achieved significant airtime on national radio, with the accompanying music videos winning several industry awards alongside fantastic reviews both in the UK and North America. The band was also the first to score 11/11 with a debut single on BBC Introducing’s New Music Revue.
Now, emerging from the global pandemic hotly tipped as the next Alternative breakthrough artist, Oh My God! It's The Church are back with their second record 'Revelations'. Scheduled for release in April 2022, the record's lead singles 'Kiss My ApocaLips' and 'Welcome To The Congregation' have enjoyed wide airplay across the BBC, including several features and interviews on BBC6 Music.
Having been likened to Tenacious D and Flight of the Conchords and Nominated as ‘Live Act of the Year’ by the AIF Festival Congress, this hugely entertaining act are starting to turn heads in the TV world too with several approaches for pilots about the Reverend and his hail Marys and rumoured big screen adaptations on the horizon. With further releases due throughout 2022, plus huge festival performances, and their biggest ever headline tour, Oh My God! It’s The Church are ready once again to bring their own brand of Salvation to the nation.
In a world which increasingly feels like it’s falling apart and rife with division, Oh My God! It’s The Church are the medicine your soul has been craving. Fronted by insane Pastor The Right Reverend Michael Alabama Jackson, he and his wild collective combine to create a fresh live act which has taken the UK by storm, and is fast becoming the hottest ticket in town whether gracing the Main Stages at major music festivals, hosting one of their infamous underground club nights or thrilling revellers at the most exclusive parties on the planet.
Prepare for the incomprehensible and get ready to fall in love. Welcome to a new musical religion for the 21st Century, one which brings the masses together, and baptises them in Absinthe.
