TV Priest recently released their debut album Uppers in February 2021. Mxdwn author Ani Khajadourian reviewed Uppers, writing, “TV Priest plunge into the punk scene with some intensity on their debut album Uppers. On this record, the band comes in hot with an embrace of industrial influences and a sprinkle of ’80s flavor that is sure to get them noticed. It’s a fast-paced soundscape that invokes questions of our place in society and the role of the government, as well as the troubling nature of the toxic trends on social media…. TV Priest delivers a strong punk rock sound with even stronger messages embedded within their poetic lyrics on Uppers. The album is a great fast-paced jam session that makes the ears ring and the heart race, so be prepared for breathlessness while listening to this album.” The band also recently played at South by Southwest– read mxdwn author Riley Glaister-Ryder’s review of their performance here.
