The Dublin rock outfit have been rising to the top of the music scene ever since their 2017 release of their debut EP 'Calm Girls'

They started selling out shows here in Ireland, supporting artists like IDLES, Pussy Riot and Future Islands, and earning enthusiastic support in the UK before they independently released their 2020 LP 'In Waiting'.

The album was a major breakthrough for the band. It earned them praise from outlets like The Guardian, who called them "2020's most exciting indie rockers."

They also received praise from the likes of NPR, NME, The Irish Times, and The Line of Best Fit. A Choice Prize Album of The Year nomination followed. And most remarkably of all a US national television appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

The band also signed with legendary music label Sub Pop Records last year, cementing a bright future ahead for the quartet.

Their new album titled 'Leave The Lights On' releases in April. The news coincides with the announcement of the band's first North American tour. It will include a stop at SXSW before they return to the UK in May and Ireland in October.

The band also released their new single 'Be By Your Side', accompanied by a music video which you can watch below.

"This song is about the mechanisms that are used to hide your vulnerabilities and carry on," explains singer/bassist Pamela Connolly. "But also, the feeling of being about to burst and how cathartic it could be to allow yourself to let your emotions out and feel the world around you. This was one of the first songs we finished on the album as it was the quickest to become fully realized by all of us."

As well as their sold out shows at home this year, Pillow Queens will be playing the following venues in Ireland in October 2022:
