The boys are back with a big one.
Four-piece Peace broke through massively a few years ago with backing from NME and a place in the BBCs annual Sound Of…poll.
Now, after leaving their former label Columbia, the boys are making a big statement as they return with power-rock anthem ‘Power,’ a rallying call-to-arms that was inspired by the band witnessing a massive lighting storm whilst recording new material in the US.
The peacock-ing new single was produced by Simon Felice, who has worked with both Bat For Lashes and the Lumineers. The single is the first new release from the boys in 2018, after they followed up their 2015 album Happy People with the charity-assisting ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ in November last year.
The single cover for ‘Power’ is also very striking; seeing the boys dressed in their very best morning attire and the cover borrowing the stylised red border of Time magazine to create a bold and confident re-emergence for the four piece into the public sphere.
Front-man Harry Koisser says of the new single: “‘Power’ is a song about booting down the door to delirious glory and charging headfirst into the world-wide banquet of love.:
Fair enough, mate. Also, have you heard that chorus? Amazing.
There’s also exciting news live-wise for fans of Peace. The boys will be playing at Omera as part of the now sold-out NME Awards, and have also been announced to headline both Live at Leeds and Liverpool Sound City this May.
‘Power’ is available to buy and stream now. An album will probably rear its head later in the year, so you should probably get very excited.
Peace live tour dates:
13th – London, Omeara, NME Awards Show (SOLD OUT)
5th – Live At Leeds (headliners)
6th – Liverpool Sound City (headliners)
