Peace announce intimate Birmingham show

August 3, 2015 in News

Peace, one of the UK’s most exciting young live bands, announce a super intimate warm-up show at The Institute on Thurs 27th August 2015, ahead of their Reading & Leeds Festival appearances. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 7th August.

2015 has already seen the release of the quartet’s much anticipated second Top 20 album, Happy People, as well as a sellout UK tour in January. The band play Reading & Leeds in August, before embarking on a mammoth tour this autumn that includes a date at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Sat 10th October.

The four-piece leapt into the hearts of the public with their joyously escapist debut album In Love in 2013. Their heart-on-sleeve indie anthemics, impulsive and charismatic frontman Harry Kossier, and knack for writing a genuine song hook swiftly saw the colourful Birmingham four piece grace every tastemaker music front cover, play two sold out Shepherds Bush Empires shows, and pop a top 20 debut album in their back pocket.

Fast-forward to present day and Peace have stepped up from songs for indie clubs, to something much, much bigger. Happy People has the kind of ambitious spirit which has the potential of touching lives of millions. The brilliance of these songs is in their effervescence — in how for all the craft and consideration and studio experimentation, how irresistible and irrepressible and effortless they sound. These are songs of youth and joy, these are choruses to be sung loud and en masse, this is the sound of a band on fire.

Watch: Peace – ‘Gen Strange’

May 5, 2015 in News


Ahead of their biggest tour to date, Peace have released a new video for ‘Gen Strange’. Taken from their top 20 album Happy People, the video features a guest appearance from famous footballer and equally esteemed robotic dancer, Peter Crouch. From Frontman Harry Koisser:

“Hello world,

Please find attached our video we made for gen strange.
Basically the TOADZ (totally original & dangerous) have got your back baby.
Look, our youth was tarnished by being spat on and bothered as we mooched around small town shopping centres but it’s 2015 now & we’ve decided having to deal with being verbally or physically assaulted for basically dressing like an absolute hero, being “overweight” & too cute is over.  
Next time you get sass give us a call & we’ll come f*ck those jokers up. On our motorbikes.
We’re claiming the tracksuit. It’s ours now.

Yours Toadingly
H
xx”

Peace reveal brand new video for ‘Money’

April 16, 2014 in News

Birmingham Promoters favourites Peace have revealed a video for brand new single ‘Money’. The track is set for release on 9th June via Columbia Records, and is available to pre-order now on signed 7-inch or as a digital release via iTunes. The single is taken from the Birmingham quartet’s much-anticipated second album. The video was directed by Ninian Doff, and follows some Wall Street banker types with some mighty fancy secret handshakes.

When asked about the single, Harry Koisser said “I wrote Money at some point last year whilst trying to write a song about anything but myself. I realised I wasn’t born into it & I still don’t have it & as a song it just seemed to work. It’s not negative, bitter or whingey. I just feel like this year I got a ticket to the circus & I’m trying to decide if I’m a lion or a clown.”

 

Peace head back out on a UK tour this May, full dates can found here.
