Priests Announce Huge World Tour And New Album 'The Seduction Of Kansas'

Priests have revealed a massive world tour.

The Washington band will hit the road throughout spring across North America, Europe and the UK, where they'll play the Great Escape festival in Brighton and headline shows in Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and London. They then head back to the US for another round of dates in June and July. Tickets for the UK and Europe shows are on sale now, while US fans will have to wait until 10am local time on January 11.

The tour announcement comes alongside details of a new album. Their third LP, ‘The Seduction of Kansas’, is scheduled for release on April 5 via their own Sister Polygon Records. The title track has arrived too, along with a video directed by vocalist Katie Alice Greer.

The new single lands firmly in the realms of pop and dance music, marking a side-step away from Priests' punk roots. While a pliant and springy guitar lick takes over the higher frequencies, the bassline is built on a dirty, deep synthesiser.
