The band’s new record, out in July via Sub Pop, is being previewed by the single ‘Bury Me In My Shoes’.

TV Priest have announced details of their second album – find out all you need to know about ‘My Other People’ below.

The Sub pop-signed four-piece’s follow-up to 2021 debut ‘Uppers’ will land on 17th June via the legendary Seattle-based label. Today, the band are previewing it with new single ‘Bury Me In My Shoes’. Last month, the band shared the album’s opening track, ‘One Easy Thing’.

Of the new album, frontman Charlie Drinkwater said: “My Other People is a more “open’” set of songs, both musically and in our themes; in the process of writing we found ourselves talking about things other than anger or aggression. We wanted to discuss love, loss and joy too. It’s a record about personal disintegration and destruction, but also rebuilding again after this.

“It’s also heavily rooted in place, the music being a very direct response to Britain and England in 2021, but in a more abstract and textural sense. A muddy field viewed from a train window between cities, a patch of wild flowers growing next to a motorway, sticky carpets in a suburban flat roof pub, pissing rain on an August bank holiday and the smell of diesel in an out of town supermarket car park. An angry, hopeful, shitty, beautiful island.”

Listen to the new single and read Drinkwater’s explanation of it below.

“‘Bury Me In My Shoes' is a hangover of a song. Last year was about reminding ourselves to hang on to good things; to remember you can love and hate in equal measure. That the answers are rarely found by looking backwards. 'Bury Me' was written as a response to that general feeling of unease and creeping dread. A feeling you get from bad news on no breakfast.”
