Hell on Church Street CD + MP3 BundlePre-order included
On Hell on Church Street, Punch Brothers pay tribute to their hero Tony Rice in a reimagining of the bluegrass great's landmark album Church Street Blues, which features an inspired collection of songs by Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Bill Monroe, and others. Recording Hell on Church Street in November 2020, with the world so full of uncertainty, offered the band one thing they could rely on: making music together. The album was intended as both its own work of art and a gift to Rice, who died that Christmas. "After we got over the shock of losing our hero and friend," Noam Pikelny says, "we realized what Tony had left with us was his music, his spirit, and his legacy." "We spent a lot of time contemplating what happened when Church Street Blues hit our ears as a band," Chris Thile says: "we held it out, we conversed with it, and now were handing it to you."
