Official press release:
High Priestess is a heavy psych/doom trio from Los Angeles that throw down lush harmonies and crushing riffs and grooves. Consisting of Katie Gilchrest on guitar and vocals, Mariana Fiel on bass/vocals, and Megan Mullins on drums, they have created a sound that echoes both past and future incarnations of doom and psychedelia.
Formed in the spring of 2016 when Mariana Fiel placed an ad on Craigslist seeking like minds for a devastating project, Katie and Megan heeded the call and together they immediately started producing long, hypnotic jams that morphed into crafted songs with dynamic crescendos and soaring improv sections. The band self-released a five-song demo in July 2017 that through word-of-mouth gained high critical praise and a growing fan base.
Newly signed to Ripple Music Tours, with tours both domestic and abroad planned, High Priestess will spread the gospel of thick fuzz and rhapsodic melody.
Prepare to worship at their altar.
Their debut album will be released worldwide in May 2018.
