Ex-Late Of The Pier musician La Priest announces debut album ‘Inji’

Hear eight minute lead track 'Party Zute / Learning To Love'

La Priest, the new project from Late Of The Pier musician Sam Dust, has announced details of his debut album.

Dust was a member of the fourpiece dance-punk outfit from 2004 until their split in 2010. His band released their debut album ‘Fantasy Black Channel’ in 2008, with NME‘s Tim Chester writing at the time, “It’s ludicrousness par excellence. With the arrival of ‘Fantasy Black Channel’ – four young men given free rein over four studios – it’s time to hail the new age of anything-goes ridiculousness.”

Dust will now release full-length ‘Inji’ on June 29 via Domino. A press release cites Arthur Russell and David Byrne as influences on the LP.

The album has been preceded by eight minute lead track ‘Party Zute / Learning To Love’, which is streaming now below.

The ‘Inji’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘Lady’s In Trouble With The Law’
‘Gene Washes With New Arm’
‘Party Zute / Learning To Love’
‘Lorry Park’
‘Night Train’
‘A Good Sign’

Dust has also announced a string of UK live dates over the coming months, appearing at festivals in Manchester, Brighton and London. See the dates in full below.
