The band premiere songs from their forthcoming second album

Peace debuted new material at two tiny London shows last night (May 1).

The Birmingham band performed twice at the 180-capacity Scotch Of St James in Mayfair. Both shows were free entry and saw the group play three new songs, taken from their forthcoming second album.

The first show kicked off just after 8pm, with fans having begun queuing to get into the intimate venue at 2pm. Arriving on stage to chants of “Peace”, the quartet opened their set with their recently revealed new single ‘Money’, which they first previewed on their December 2013 tour. “We’re going to play a new song now,” frontman Harry Koisser told the rowdy crowd later, before playing ‘Lost On Me’ live for the first time.

“Have you got any requests?” he asked the crowd before the penultimate song of the set. Fans responded by chanting for ‘1998 (Delicious)’, but the band launched into ‘Wraith’ from their debut album ‘In Love’ instead. Peace then brought the first show to a close with ‘World Pleasure’.

Two hours later, the band returned to the stage to perform again, playing the same set as in the previous show. Midway through the set, Koisser informed the fresh crowd: “I’d like to dedicate this to a very special lady” before slowing things down with a version of ‘Float Forever’.

After the second show had finished, the band took takeaway pizzas out to those fans that hadn’t been able to get in to the second show.

‘Follow Baby’
‘Float Forever’
