The most prolific band you’ve probably never heard of……… Since their inception in 2007, The Hip Priests have released a mighty twenty four 7” singles, four albums and three EPs by various independent labels from all over Europe & the USA!! Fiercely independent and tirelessly driven, the ‘Priests have preached their high energy sermon of misanthropy, hate, sex and contempt across tours of the UK, Europe and USA, and made countless rapturously received festival appearances. Gaining a richly deserved reputation as a white hot live band they play to ever increasing audiences both at home and abroad.
Rave reviews pour in for every release, ranging from ‘a band on top of their game & steps ahead of any of their UK contemporaries’ to ‘if you’re in any doubt about how good these bad boys are then you need locking up’. 2018 saw no let-up in their energy and activity. Kicking off the year with the release of an extraordinary and critically acclaimed 12” 10 minute epic, ‘No Time (Like Right now)’ (‘the sound of the MC5 bypassing 11 and turning things up to 12’) they have played a wealth of shows including UK tours with Zeke, Dwarves and a stand out set at Eindhoven’s ‘Helldorado’ Festival.
After over 10 years some bands would be taking it easy but 2019 will see no let-up in their determination and activity. Having recently completed their fourth, and by far their best full-length album – ‘Stand for Nothing’ will be released early in 2019 and will followed by even more 7” singles And further shows throughout the U.K. and Europe.
This is 2019…What are YOU gonna stand for?
