English rock band TV Priest have shared a new song titled “Lifesize.” It is being released as a part of Sub Pop Singles Club, Vol. 6, and is available on 7-inch vinyl along with another new song, “All Thing.” The band has also announced dates for an upcoming tour in support of A Place to Bury Strangers. Check out the new song and list of tour dates below.

Frontman Charlie Drinkwater speaks about the new song in a press release: “‘Lifesize’ is about the worship of the ‘strong man’ image often present in our political and cultural discourse. One where the patriarchal underpinnings of our society and political structure goes unchallenged. After a particularly gruelling year, when people have looked to leaders for strength, we’ve found instead empty gestures and contempt. (‘Talk like a salesman, walks like the Pope.’) We don’t need more macho bravado; society needs empathy and compassion.”

The band’s debut album, Uppers, came out earlier this year on Sub Pop.
