DOWNLOAD: Priestess - "Ladykiller" (MP3)

Priestess at Webster Hall, opening for Pentagram (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Priestess

Priestess are prior to, um, Prior to The Fire, their NEW LP for their new home, Tee Pee Records. The band released Hello Master in 2005, and are prepping the new joint for a 2/2/10 release, though the record was completed more than a year ago:

The record was completed in the fall of 2008... and we were extremely proud, everyone involved, of what we've done and checked it in the label and it was the same story again. 'Well look guys, we can see that you love this and it's a great new direction and you guys have matured, but we still don't hear a song that we want that we can use as a single. Can you guys continue to write more songs?'

And we were basically like, 'Uhh... No. This is it. We've got a good record here and we don't want to do anything forced.'

You can't force write a single, it's impossible to do that. At least it's impossible for us. We're not Tin Pan Ally songwriters; we're a rock band.

Priestess and RCA Records decided to go their separate ways. But unlike the long and nasty splits between band and label you always here about, the break between Priestess and RCA was actually peaceful.

Shockingly peaceful actually!... read more about it at ChartAttack, and download the first track (single?) above.

Priestess will join Early Man and Naam at The Charleston on Saturday, 12/12. It's one of a few remaining dates before the end of the year.

Naam recently posted part one of their ongoing tour diary from the road with Priestess and Early Man. Dig on that here. Remaining Priestess dates and the show flyer are below...

fun anecdote - RCA record execs heard david bowie's album "ziggy stardust..." for the first time and reported back the same thing told to Priestess - "we don't hear a single". bowie went back to the studio and quickly wrote and recorded "starman".

gotta love this band.
they always look like they're having an awesome time when you see them live, they're super nice guys, the music's totally solid & well executed, & they played that awesome/extremely absurd venue Autumn Bowl in Brooklyn earlier this summer.
anyone in attendance at that will attest to a fun/great/unique experience.

This band really rocks the music scene! Everyone goes wild seeing their awesome performance. I'm sure that those concert tours mentioned above were filled with their loyal fans.

Priestess is my favorite band, I visited several of their concerts, the atmosphere was amazing.

With all this talk about high definition footage, I hope they will also release it on blu-ray. It makes no sense to shoot HD and only release it on a standard definition format.

Interesting... I'm going to blog about that too...
