Biography

Washington, D.C.-based post-punk quartet Priests formed in late 2011, creating raucous blasts of noisy, politically charged punk fronted by vocalist Katie Alice Greer with guitarist G.L. Jaguar, drummer Daniele Daniele, and bassist Taylor Mulitz. The project was the first musical venture for most of the players (though both Greer and Daniele would later join the revolving-door cast of fellow D.C. punk intellectuals Chain & the Gang), and the newly formed Priests quickly recorded a demo-like cassette and began touring, first locally and then across the States, quickly gaining a reputation for their frenetic live show. A 7" single, a second cassette, and a few compilation appearances followed before the 2014 arrival of mini-album Bodies and Control and Money and Power, which was recorded with production help from Black Eyes member Hugh McElroy. The band's 2017 debut album, Nothing Feels Natural, found Priests balancing their outbursts with a more eclectic -- but just as forceful -- approach. In 2017, Mulitz left the band to perform full-time with his other group, Flasher. When Greer, Jaguar, and Daniele reconvened to make Priests' second album, they worked with multi-instrumentalist Janel Leppin (who also appeared on Nothing Feels Natural) and producer John Congleton on a set of songs inspired by Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, and Massive Attack, as well as Thomas Frank's 2004 book What's the Matter with Kansas? The results were The Seduction of Kansas, which Priests released on their Sister Polygon label in April 2019. ~ Fred Thomas
