Pillow Queens are set to tour across Europe in November, playing shows across France, Germany and the UK.
Dublin indie-rockers Pillow Queens have released a brand-new single 'Suffer', the first since last year's sophomore album Leave The Light On.
An examination of the nasty, messy feelings surrounding the unravelling of a once-cherished relationship, 'Suffer' takes influence from Northern Soul music along with musical contemporaries Alt-J, Hozier, Feist, Black Pumas and Lana Del Rey. It was produced by Collin Pastore, who has produced both boygenius and Lucy Dacus.
"We wrote it in the depths of winter at our rehearsal studio in Dublin, and the cold really penetrates the song," Pillow Queens say about the song.
"This one is really special to us and we hope it resonates with you in the same way," they also wrote on social media. "The beginning of something completely new for us and we hope you love it."

"The duality of Pillow Queens is ever-present in their enthralling lyricism," said Hot Press' Kate Brayden in her review of the record. "Somehow, Pillow Queens capture the need to fearlessly sing the words aloud at a gig - an exorcism of your worries - while also offering songs to shut the world out with.
"Ascending to dizzying heights as an Irish export, Leave The Light On makes us want to cling onto them as a cherished, pure homegrown talent for a minute longer before releasing them to the outside world." Read the full review here.
Pillow Queens have had a busy schedule so far this year, touring relentlessly and headlining festival stages across Ireland and beyond. The alternative rockers are scheduled to appear at this weekend's Cork Jazz Festival, playing at Cork City Hall on 27 October.
They will also be embarking on a tour across Europe this November, playing shows across France, Germany and the UK. For more information on dates and tickets click here.
