Frontman Harry Koisser recently revealed that the next Peace album will feature a track with him rapping. The Birmingham band were at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas at O2 Academy Brixton – and, when Koisser was asked for his thoughts on Godlike Genius recipients Blondie, he said the New York band's track 'Rapture' had influenced their new album.
