UK Tour dates plotted in March/April

‘State Of The State’ is an EP bursting with new energy, new ideas and new outlooks”
– Upset (4/5)

“Pillow Queens could well be your new favourite band.” – DIY Mag (4/5)

“a dizzying clash of big hooks, bigger melodies, and super-smart lyricism.”
– Louder Than War (8/10)

Every tune is catchy but also impassioned, with just a seasoning of punk fizz and feisty lyrics about relationship tangles and self-worth” – The Arts Desk

‘Puppets’ is the song that inspired the title of Pillow Queens’ forthcoming EP ‘State of The State’, which is set for release 16th March via Specialist Subject. Sarah Corcoran from the band explains that ‘Puppets’ is“a song about the frustration of trying to succeed in post-recession Ireland, and the effect that has on mental health.”

Despite the sunny disposition of Pillow Queens’ catchy melodies and rambunctious riffs, the songs found on ‘State of The State’ tend to have a darker undercurrent. Elsewhere on the EP, the band muse on emotional highs and lows, the inevitability of anxiety and paranoia.

The Irish quartet are heading out on tour in support of the EP’s release. See below for dates. Current single ‘Favourite’ comes with a dogtastic accompanying music video and has been receiving airplay on BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 1 and Radio X.
