Singer/guitarist Mikey Heppner of the Montreal-based hard rockers PRIESTESS has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"We just got home from yet another U.S. tour racking the grand total up to 110 shows in the 191 days of 2006! Wow is right! But we're about half done now this August we've got a week of shows with the reigning masters of the stage GWAR! Which is awesome, 'cause we get to watch GWAR seven nights in a row! We're pretty happy about that over here in camp PRIESTESS. Also, this fall will have us out everywhere in North America again on a sweet package bill that I can't just yet divulge, but it's really sick, trust me. Our road will then lead us across the ocean for the first time in our young life. We're looking at some U.K. and Europe stuff for November! Meanwhile, on our little break at home, we're working on new tunes, sleeping in 'till five in the afternoon and taking three-hour baths and stuff. ALSO, the vinyl version [of the PRIESTESS debut album] is actually almost ready, I just got the test pressing of it today, and it's mighty fine! That big orangey Arik Roper sunset is going to look real nice 1'X2'!!"
PRIESTESS' debut CD, "Hello Master", was released last month via Red Ink. More information (including audio samples) is available at www.priestessband.com.
