Post-punk trio Priests have shared another single from their upcoming album, The Seduction of Kansas. The driving punk-rocker called “Good Time Charlie” is about former Texas congressman Charlie Wilson--who is most famous for masterminding covert operations in Afghanistan during the late 1970s and early 80s supplying the mujahideen fighters rebelling against the Soviet invasion with weapons--immortalized in the film “Charlie Wilson’s War” starring Tom Hanks.
As you might imagine, there are a lot of references to Wilson and the Cold War debacle in the song’s lyrics and luckily it came with a lyric video. Check it out above.
“Good Time Charlie” is the second single from The Seduction of Kansas. In January Priests released a video for the title track and announced the release date. The Seduction of Kansas arrives on April 5 via the group’s Sister Polygon Records and is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2017 album Nothing Feels Natural.
Priests will hit the road on March 8 in Savannah, Georgia around The Seduction of Kansas. The extensive tour will see the band throughout the U.S and Europe including stops in Philadelphia, Boston, New Orleans, Los Angeles and many more. The tour wraps up in St. Louis on July 10.
