On the heels of TV Priest’s acclaimed debut album, Uppers, comes “Lifesize”, a new single from the group and their contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club, Vol. 6.

The group’s front man, Charlie Drinkwater says of the song:

“‘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. (‘Talk like a salesman, walks like the Pope.’) We don’t need more macho bravado; society needs empathy and compassion.”

“Lifesize” will also be released with one additional track on a 7” single as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6. The subscription-only series includes twelve 7” singles by an exciting array of artists, including John Waters, Jeff Tweedy, Duma, LIDS, Washed Out, Hand Habits, BNH Deluxe, Porridge Radio, Sheltered Workshop Singers, and more. Only 1,000 subscriptions are available, and the series is nearly sold out. Hear music from the series via the Singles Club playlist, and subscribe here!

Having played festivals curated by the likes of IDLES and Sports Team, as well as Manchester Psych Fest this summer, TV Priest will return to the stages of the UK and France this October and November, with appearances at Sirens Festival in Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as the Pitchfork Festival in Paris. The band will then share the stage with A Place to Bury Strangers in North America in early 2022. See below for a full listing of dates, with more headline shows and news of their forthcoming record to be announced soon.
