Priestess

Jack Frost opened up the heavens and caused Priestess to call off their appearance at The Charleston with Early Man last month (Early Man played anyway with Naam), but the band has been determined to make it up. And make it up they shall on March 13th, though in a venue a liiiittle bit bigger than that basement.... Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets go on AMEX presale at noon (1/20), and regular sale at noon on Fri (1/22). The band is currently gearing up to play Europe with Bigelf through the bulk of February. Full tour dates are below.

After rockin' our world with the first taste of Prior To The Fire late last year, the "Ladykiller"s are back to show us their "Raccoon Eyes". The new track shows the band in a more melodic light, with the oodles of thrashy riffage replaced by dual leads ala Iron Maiden. But please, don't get it twisted, dudes have riffs. Dig on the new track above, and pick up Prior To The Fire on Tee Pee rekkids and compact disques on Feb 2nd.

Full tour dates and tons of videos including live representations of both new Prior To The Fire tracks, are below....
