Peace, are back with a brand new album, titled ‘Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll’, released 4th May. The album is available for pre-order now via this link.
It's been three years since Peace were swelling up tents at festivals, turning guitar cynics into rock and roll dreamers with their indulgent mixture of romantic riffs, heart-shaped lyrics and dancing drum beats. After a blistering success with their 2015 follow-up LP 'Happy People' (their debut 'In Love' came out to rapturous hype in 2013), the band disappeared for two years, winding up at a farmhouse in the middle of a forest miles away from civilisation. Now, they are back – as Peace 2.0; new label, new record and ready to reinvigorate their tribal young fanbase, one so loyal they’re known to sport Peace tattoos all over their bodies.
Over the past three years, singer Harry Koisser himself has been journeying on his very own independent transformative path; now sober, and turned to yoga and meditation. Alcohol and partying had taken its toll. Yoga became a habit six days a week. It completely revolutionised his creativity. Taking this with him into the recording studio after the farmhouse writing sessions Harry felt like he finally “had the keys to the Lamborghini.” Fleeing to Woodstock, USA, for a month in 2017 – a most unpractical but pleasingly gung-ho decision – the band went to work with Simone Felice (Bat For Lashes, The Lumineers), a brand new injection of blood.
With festivals to headline this year and a whole new universe to impact, the boys are well and truly back in town. “We want to be bigger and shinier than ever,” says Harry.
