Pillow Queens Sign to Royal Mountain Records, Unveil Video for ‘Rats’

    Pillow Queens have announced their signing to Royal Mountain Records. To celebrate the occasion, the Dublin band have shared a new video for ‘Rats’, directed by Michael Maxxis (Orville Peck, City and Colour). Check it out below.

    “Filming the video for ‘Rats’ was catharsis at its best,” guitarist Pamela Connolly said in a press release. “After 18 months of no gigs and being inside, we finally got a chance to gather in a venue and simulate a real life gig with some of our closest friends. The chant section towards the end of the song is usually a highlight of our live set and we had really missed that energy so having a chance to recreate that was really special.”

    Today’s announcement comes ahead of Pillow Queen’s UK and European tour, which kicks off in Berlin on September 18. Find the full list of dates below.

    Pillow Queens released their debut album, In Waiting, last year. Revisit our Artist Spotlight Q&A with Pillow Queens.
