CHVRCHES’ Lauren Mayberry recently had a chat with Tom Mullen on the Washed Up Emo podcast. A great interview discussing Mayberry’s early days in Glasgow bands like Boyfriend/Girlfriend and Blue Sky Archives and how those times shaped the person she is today.
This insightful discussion touched on everything from the Glasgow music scene, women in music and the sexism they face, emo music, Mayberry’s journalism days, collaborations, the future of CHVRCHES and much more!

A few months ago, we broke the news that CHVRCHES had become the newest sponsor of Whitburn Junior FC with their logo emblazoned on the team’s new away strip. Within days of this announcement several local news outlets in Scotland picked up our story and soon afterwards CHVRCHES fans around the world came asking to purchase one of their own. The outpouring of interest from fans took the team by surprise and it worked.
We have been in contact with the team’s secretary over the past few months and happy to announce these jerseys are now available for sale to the general public. This limited edition of 100 jerseys are available in small, medium, large, extra large and double extra large for £55.00 plus shipping.
Iain Cook is originally from Whitburn, Scotland and his father has been closely involved with the Whitburn Juniors which made this collaboration a possibility. Thank you to everyone involved including Whitburn Junior FC, the Cook family and of course CHVRCHES!
Order your jersey now through Whitburn Junior FC.
