Well-known music group The Priests have been mixed up with a US punk band.

The Priests are made up of Derry-born Fr Eugene O’Hagan, his younger brother Fr Martin O'Hagan and Fr David Delargy.

Priests, however, are a punk outfit from Washington DC.

However, photographs of the Irish priests have appeared on American music websites to promote the punk band's 2017 US tour.

Fr Eugene O'Hagan said some fans has been contacting them over how to get tickets for their non-existent US gigs.

"We were taken a bit by surprise, needless to say," he told BBC's Good Morning Ulster.

"It would be a whole new audience if we walked out on stage. Or if they walked out on stage, with our fan base, there might be a few heart attacks in the audience."

In a Facebook post to his fans on Monday, he said they were trying to get things ‘straightened out as soon as possible’.

"They're a very different band from us. I Googled them the other evening to find that they're described as singing with tempered tension, thoughtful rage and relentless energy.

"I think the only thing we have in common with them might be the relentless energy."
