Alternative trio Priests are readying to release their second full-length album The Seduction of Kansas on April 5 via their own Sister Polygon Records. The new album follows 2017's debut effort Nothing Feels Natural which captured the attention of artists and music lovers worldwide.

To coincide with the announcement of the album, Priests released the lead single and title track, "The Seduction of Kansas" along with the accompanying music video directed by singer Katie Alice Greer. The album was produced by John Congleton with the trio teaming up with instrumentalist Janel Leppin. Leppin collaborated on songs while also playing bass on the album that's influenced by several works including Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral and Massive Attack's Mezzanine. See the tracklisting below.

Along with a new album, Priests are headed out on the road to support the effort. The band will kick off the tour on March 8 in Savannah, Georgia and will complete an expansive 57-date tour on July 10 in St. Louis, Missouri. Priests will play most of those dates in North America but heads over to Europe for 20 dates before returning to the United States for an additional run.

Along the way, Priests will play Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's Union Transfer on April 15. Tickets for the event go on sale on Jan. 11 at 10:00 a.m. For pricing and availability, click here for event details. Check out Priests' full itinerary below to see if the band is coming to a city near you.
