Indianapolis, Indiana band Church Tongue has officially signed with Blood & Ink Records and will release a new record titled Heart Failure on October 21. This will be the debut full-length for the group, who formed in 2012.

Today we're exclusively premiering a track from the record titled "Medicine Breath." The song features Davey Muise of Vanna and can be streamed below. Vocalist Michael Sugars comments:

"This song is in a constant battle for favorite song on the record for me. I have a lot of strong feelings about what bands stand for, do not stand for or fake. Art is a reflection of the environment and experience around you. If you fabricate it into a substance that is worth less than an expired microwaved hotdog, there's a good chance I feel strongly towards you. When I sent this song to Davey Muise of Vanna, he came back with a part written about snake oil peddling. I had no clue what that was, so I did some quick reading. A snake oil peddler is someone who sells fraudulent goods that prove to be of no benefit. It was a great tie in to the song and Davey made his part soar. Question everything, and have an awareness for who bands truly are. They are a lot of 'fake it till you make it' players out there."
