Following closely from the release of their acclaimed debut album, Uppers, TV Priest have today returned with their latest single, Lifesize, and contribution to Sub Pop Singles Club, Vol. 6. Listen below.
Speaking about the track, front man Charlie Drinkwater states:
‘Lifesize’ is about the worship of the ‘strong man’ image often present in our political and cultural discourse. One where the patriarchal underpinnings of our society and political structure goes unchallenged. After a particularly grueling year, when people have looked to leaders for strength, we’ve found instead empty gestures and contempt.
Lifesize will also be released alongside another, additional track on a 7” single as part of record label Sub Pop’s ‘Sub Pop Singles Club’ volume 6. The series is a subscription only series which includes 7” singles from a variety of exciting artists including John Waters, Porridge Radio, Jeff Tweedy and many more, with each release being limited to 1,000 copies. Pre-order Lifesize here.
Having spent their summer playing festivals curated by the likes of IDLES and Sports Team, alongside stepping in at Manchester Psych Fest, TV Priest are set to return to the stage once more in October and November, touring in both the UK and France before heading to the states in 2022, where they’ll go on to share the stage with A Place to Bury Strangers. Tickets for all dates are available now*.
