“Fran seemed to work the door at every Fireside show Müs and I attended in high school. So we’re particularly stoked now that him and his mates at Triple Eye are putting out our first record. That kind of full-circle, sentimental jive is pretty cool to us.” – High Priests
We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of High Priests’ new song “10 Years” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Spinning, which is scheduled to be released through Triple Eye Industries on March 23, 2018. You can pre-order the album here.
Coming together in the fall of 2013 with former and current members of The Brokedowns, Wide Angles and Post Child, the members of High Priests bonded over their mutual love of bad jokes, blunts and frequent viewings of the Karp documentary. With no immediate goals in mind, the band set out to simply play noisy and discordant music that was far removed from their current projects.
Their forthcoming LP Spinning was engineered at Kildare Studios by Joe Gac (of Meat Wave). The album boasts a bombastic production value, showcasing the songs with a spaciousness that perfectly fits their arrangements. Spinning accomplishes the rare feat of finding a balance between a lo-fi basement recording and something on the more professional end of the sonic spectrum, resulting in an album filled with equal parts grit and clarity.
