Since forming in the mid 2000s, Churches Burn has brought an sometimes unrecognized but uncompromising integrity to the Rust Belt/Midwest underground heavy music scene. A power trio with only two instruments, Brian Carnahan (bass), Adam Boehm (drums), and Alyssa Osborne (bass) have remained persistent in playing anywhere that will have them, from backyards to basements to bars and everywhere in between. They often play for free or for whatever donations can be spared, and have toured across the region several times while keeping all their albums and tour demos available for free.
