Internationally-acclaimed cult band The Whisky Priests, from County Durham, England, are reuniting in 2018 to perform what will be the band’s first official live shows since 2004, and to release a retrospective Complete Recordings 12-CD box set (containing all the band’s official studio & live releases, covering a 15-year period from 1985-2000, as well as an extensive collection of demos and other rarities), to celebrate the band’s unique career.
Founded in 1985 by twin brothers Gary & Glenn Miller, The Whisky Priests became one of the leading pioneers and finest exponents of the ‘folk-punk-rock’ genre. Their music and visual image proved hugely influential and spawned a host of similar bands worldwide. The Whisky Priests are now regarded by many as ‘Godfathers’ of their genre. The band released a string of internationally acclaimed albums but was particularly renowned worldwide, and in constant demand, for its incredible live shows, touring extensively and taking in 1250+ concerts in over 20 countries, including many festival performances, TV and live radio sessions.
Now, they’re “Bloody Well Back!” to complete some “Unfinished Business”!
