Thy Kingdom Scum was written and recorded by Tatus Mikami, Junji Narita, Ikume Kawabe, and Hideki Fukasawa. In 2012, after the departure vocalist Yoshiaki Negishi, Tatsu and Junji contacted their previous singer Hideki, and they decided on a reunion. Additionally, the band added guitarist Ikuma Kawabe (ex-DHIDALAH) in late May 2012.With this new line-up, they started writing and recording the new album.
After the release of Houses Of The Unholy in 2009, CHURCH OF MISERY continued to visit western countries, and embarked on several fantastic tours: Europe with EYEHATEGOD, Maryland Death Fest X, and a headlining US tour with The Gates of Slumber and Hail!Hornet. Plans are currently in motion for more touring in support of Thy Kingdom Scum. Updates will be posted to churchofmisery.net and metalblade.com/churchofmisery as they are made available.
