With Spinning set to release soon -- March 23 on Triple Eye Industries -- Chicago's noise/hardcore band High Prieses have unveiled "Control" at Svbterranean to get fans ready for the new release

Formed in 2013, the band includes familiar faces who play (or have played) in The Brokedowns, Wide Angles and Post Child. "The members of High Priests bonded over their mutual love of bad jokes, blunts and frequent viewings of the Karp documentary. With no immediate goals in mind, the band set out to simply play noisy and discordant music that was far removed from their current projects," says the band.

High Priests are:
Mikey Alesi - Guitar, Vocals
Justin Gutierrez - Bass, Vocals
Mustafa Daka - Drums, Vocals
