Since their inception in 2006, The Hip Priests have released a mighty thirty 7" singles, four albums, two compilations and three EPs by various independent labels from all over Europe & the USA. Fiercely independent and tirelessly driven, the 'Priests have preached their high energy sermon of misanthropy, hate and contempt across numerous tours of the UK, Europe and USA and made countless rapturously received festival appearances. Gaining a richly deserved reputation as a white-hot live band, the last few years have seen the band's popularity increasing further with them regularly playing 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. After 16 years some bands would be taking it easy but in spite of a global pandemic, there was no let-up in their determination and activity. Their fifth, and by far their best full-length album - 'Roden House Blues' - was written, rehearsed, and recorded during this period and will be released May 5 th , 2023, via The Sign Records. 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. A few dozen demos were scrutinised of which, through a stricter than ever group consensus, 14 were recorded but then honed down, razor sharp, into the tightest collection of 11 low-fat, lean and mean banging tunes that could fit into 30 minutes. 11 glorious tracks of High Energy R'n'R, anthemic, adrenalised, sweaty, singalong, life-affirming Rock and Roll. Huge Choruses, colossal dual guitar rifferama, more hooks than a fishing shop, and one hell of an attitude. This is no Mississippi Blues but perhaps it makes more sense than you think: Howling laments, loss, self-reflection and revelation - alongside some recurring Priests lyrical themes: negativity, nihilism, rage and revolution.

Nottingham anti-socialites The Hip Priests have cooked up one of the angrier party tracks you'll hear this year - a delicious shot of shouty, catchy punk'n'roll, best served with beer, on a bill with similarly dirty groovemeisters like the Hellacopters and Supersuckers.
