Liturgy has been led by frontwoman and sole constant member Haela Hunt-Hendrix since the band’s formation in 2005. Debut album Renihilation was released in 2009, followed by 2011’s Aesthethica, 2015’s The Ark Work, 2019’s H.A.Q.Q. and 2020’s Origin of the Alimonies.
The band’s latest album, 93696, arrived in March of this year. The expansive double-album clocked in at just over 80 minutes, and its announcement last year was accompanied by the four-track companion EP As the Blood of God Bursts the Veins of Time.
Uboa released latest album The Origin of My Depression in 2019. In February this year, she announced she had signed with San Francisco-based label The Flenser for a new album which will arrive sometime in 2023.
