PALACE+ NEW BAYS + THE SURRENDERS + BLOOM

“One of our favourite new bands” – Huw Stephens
“An echo drenched sound reminiscent of early Foals” – Guardian

In the last eight months, Palace have ridden a wave of overwhelming critical and fan support. Building on the acclaim garnered with their debut EP Lost In The Night last October, their latest EP Chase The Light was released on 8th June.

Chase The Light is the band’s first release via Fiction Records. Lead single ‘Kiloran’ might just be their most majestic stadium-sized ballad yet. However, its raw reverb-drenched sound only scratches the surface of Palace’s creative ambitions. Forthcoming single ‘Head Above Water’ is a sensual, sun-streaked love song worthy of Jeff Buckley, while exquisite examinations of warring emotions (‘Settle Down’), the power of love (‘Tomahawk’) and self doubt (‘Chase The Light’) come with a subterranean stillness which suggest you’re in The Arch with them.

Launched with two sold-out debut headline shows at St. Pancras Old Church last October, Palace were then hand-picked to support Jamie T at his London comeback show. In April, Palace joined Ghostpoet on his UK tour, before playing 2 headline shows at The Red Gallery, Shoreditch, the first of which sold out so quickly, they had to add an extra date.

Plus support from NEW BAYS

Formed over eighteen months ago, the New Bays line up Adam Bennett (lead vocals and guitar), Nathan Parsons (guitar), Jack Sylvester (drums), Dan Williams (keyboards) and Charlie Sweet (bass) have built up a steadily growing fan base with their own live shows around the UK and support spots with the likes of We Are The Ocean, Young Kato, As Elephants Are, Frankie and the Heartstrings, Finley Quaye and alongside The Cribs, Kids in Glass Houses and The Reverend and The Makers at festival dates.

Taking their inspiration from the Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon and The Black Keys, their live shows are truly exciting affairs and see the band craft an infectious blend of left field pop to great effect.
