Priestgate have announced their debut EP.

The Yorkshire five-piece will drop ‘Eyes Closed For The Winter’ on 25th March via Lucky Number, preceded by the title-track and followed by a support tour with Walt Disco.

Speaking about the new single, vocalist Rob Schofield explains: “‘Eyes Closed For The Winter’ is about how time affects us as people and how often we avoid things we’re scared to deal with. Sometimes the best medicine for this is to just close your eyes and accept that things can get a little hard at times.”
