Peace announce biggest ever UK headline tour

Birmingham band released latest album 'Happy People' this month

Peace have announced details of their biggest ever UK tour.

Starting in September, the tour will see the band play their biggest shows, including a headline night at London’s o2 Academy Brixton on October 9. Tickets will be available via the band’s mailing list.

Peace released their second album ‘Happy People’ earlier this month. It was produced by Jim Abbiss and Duncan Mills and features the singles ‘Lost On Me’, ‘Money’ and ‘World Pleasure’. Originally scheduled for release in 2014, the album is the band’s follow up to 2013 debut ‘In Love’.

Last week, the band released a behind-the-scenes look at the album featuring Noel Fielding. The video shows the band talking through the album and explaining the meaning behind each song. Fielding stars as an older version of guitarist Doug Castle who has become a girl after becoming inspired by one song on the album titled ‘I’m A Girl’.
