Portland duo Priory have released their new 'Weekend' EP today, as they head into NYC for a release show tonight Wednesday, October 15th at the Mercury Lounge. The band kicked off their national tour last month with The Kooks, and have added west coast dates with White Arrows. They'll also be making an appearance at Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas.
Watch them perform a stripped-down version of 'Weekend' on the roof of Hollywood Towers in LA for Balcony TV.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The band's single, 'Weekend,' debuted on the alternative radio charts in its first week, and is featured on the EP alongside three brand new tracks. Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears sold everything they had (including their own blood), and built out a studio in an old cement factory. They dealt with hardships during the recording process - family members with cancer, friends that died of drug overdoses - but turned their life experiences into positive songs with meaningful messages. The best part is - they did it all themselves.

Pink Palms was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Justin Warfield, with additional production by Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner. The album was mixed by Michael Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G) and mastered by Emily Lazar (HAIM, Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters).
The Bots are Los Angeles brothers and bandmates Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei (17 and 21 years old).

The Bots are deeply intertwined in the American music narrative while, at the same time, carving out a wholly new, powerful, uniquely personal storyline.
