TV Priest have shared new single “Press Gang” from their upcoming album Uppers, set to be released on February 5th, 2021 via Sub Pop. They have also shared an accompanying music video directed by Joe Wheatley.
“Press Gang” is inspired by Charlie’s grandfather’s life’s work as a photojournalist and war correspondent on Fleet Street from the 1950s to the early 1980s. The song is about the shifting role in the dissemination of information and ideas, and how the prevailing narrative that the “Death of Print Media” has contributed to a “post-truth” world.
Uppers is now available to preorder in the U.K. and Europe through select independent retailers.
The band have rescheduled February’s first London headliner and only the band’s second ever show – socially distanced at Oslo – for April 10th. The show was already sold out but the band will perform two shows across the evening, with the second now announced for 6pm.
