Since their debut in December 2016, Irish band Pillow Queens have been making waves across the Irish music scene. The Dublin-based group quickly became queer favourites, and today had an exciting announcement.
Having already played at Latitude festival and the Dublin Quays Festival, 2018 is clearly a busy year for the group. It’s only to be made even bigger for the group with the announcement of a series of dates for Ireland and the UK, as well as the release of their music video for new single, ‘Puppets’.
Pillow Queens tweeted the dates for their End Of Year Tour earlier today:

As well as welcoming the announcement of tour dates, fans are buzzing about the group’s fun new video for ‘Puppets’, with one excited Pillow Queens fan tweeting, “Yet another whopper video from @PillowQueens, we are too spoiled.”
