Priests Touring in June
Wed, 21 May 2014 17:48:19
Priests are a powerful, frenetic, Washington, DC-based four-piece. They slay. Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill would be proud of the music they make.
Want a taste? Listen to the delightfully off-key "Right Wing" from their debut EP Bodies and Control and Money and Power, out June 3.
It's tense, push and pull, female-fronted, riot grrrl-inspired punk with a dosage of pop, but not an overdose.
Go ahead, indulge. The tune is posted below.
