Since their inception in 2006, The Hip Priests have released thirty 7” singles, four albums, two compilations and three EPs by various independent labels from all over Europe & the USA. They’ve also embarked on numerous tours of the UK, Europe and USA. Now, they are getting ready to release their fifth album, Roden House Blues, on May 5th, 2023.
In recent years, they’ve played alongside kindred spirits such as The Hellacopters, Gluecifer, The Good the Bad and the Zugly, New Bomb Turks, Dwarves and Zeke at both festivals and in clubs.
Their fifth full-length album was written, rehearsed, and recorded during the pandemic period and will be released via The Sign Records. It was rehearsed, recorded and mixed between the numerous U.K. lockdowns in Roden House, one of Nottingham’s former lace factories where the Priests have their own space, and which spawned the album title.
On the album, we find some recurring Priests lyrical themes such as “negativity, nihilism, rage and revolution.”
Roden House Blues will be released on May the 5th and will be available on all streaming platforms, CD, and in three color variants on vinyl: black vinyl, solid turquoise vinyl with solid white splatter, solid black splatter, and solid blue splatter, and transparent/clear vinyl with transparent yellow splatter and transparent pink splatter.
