TV Priest “Press Gang,”

Irish band TV Priest will release Uppers, their debut full-length for Sub Pop Records on February 5th, 2021. Today, they are sharing the new single and official video for “Press Gang,” collaborating with returning director Joe Wheatley.

“Press Gang” is inspired by Charlie’s grandfather’s life’s work as a photojournalist and war correspondent on the UK’s Fleet Street from the 1950s to the early 1980s. The song is about the shifting role in the dissemination of information and ideas, and how the prevailing narrative that the “Death of Print Media” has contributed to a “post-truth” world. The track is the follow-TV Priest “Decoration”up to TV Priest’s previous single “Decoration.”
