Priests

Friday 31 May

A great punk band is often just as convincing as a catchy advertising slogan: the official language of the establishment is weaponized and effectively spit back out again. Priests hail from Washington DC, a city where the hardcore punk revolution of the 1980s is still alive and kicking. This band preaches the contrariness of life with the decisiveness of a Dead Kennedys, Sleater-Kinney or Sonic Youth. Priest are a violent, explosive and bone-rattling unit, placing equal emphasis on dynamism and atmosphere as cutting verbal volleys.
