With the forthcoming release of debut album Inji on June 29th, Sam Dust AKA LA PRIEST has released Lorry Park, the third track to be taken from his highly anticipated debut.

The new track follows in the lead of debut singles Oino (stream HERE) and Party Zute / Learning To Love (stream HERE) with each new track etching out Dust’s futuristic sonic mosaic in beguiling new ways.

Lorry Park’s release precedes a spotlight show at London’s Field Day Festival this Saturday June 6th at 5pm on the Shacklewell Arms stage. The appearance fronts a run of high profile festival slots at the likes of Way Out West and Iceland Airwaves festivals and follows his sold out London headline dates as well as a packed-out and lauded slot at this year’s Great Escape Festival.

Inji, released on 29th June 2015, is the debut solo album by LA PRIEST. Across its ten audaciously imaginative tracks, Inji reasserts Dust as a truly idiosyncratic voice in British music, applying the same frantically eclectic, mischievous and wilfully absurd spirit of his previous band, the beloved Late of the Pier, to ever more nuanced and affecting songwriting and composition. 

Recorded over a reclusive period spanning five years following the disbandment of Late of the Pier in which Dust travelled the world, did scientific research, worked on the creation of a number of new inventions and produced several secret musical projects, Inji is a record that has its own logic and exists in its own time zone.

From the obscene space-age stadium rock guitar solo of "Oino", the maddeningly catchy digi-dub single that Dust leaked sample-by-sample on a suitably enigmatic website at the turn of the year (watch the video HERE), to "Learning To Love", the record's gargantuan, eight minute long prog-house centrepiece and "Occasion", a melting martian Prince come-on, Inji confounds and delights in equal measure and at every turn. 

If it doesn’t conform it’s because it’s not supposed to.

Inji will be available on CD (WIGCD344), LP with download code (WIGLP344), Deluxe LP with download code (WIGLP344x) & Digital (WIG344D) with an instant grat of ‘Oino and ‘Party Zute / Learning To Love’. Pre-order the album through Dom Mart HERE and through iTunes HERE.
