Peace played a secret set on day two of The Great Escape last night (April 9), filling the ‘special guest’ slot at NME’s residency at The Haunt.

Taking to the stage at 12:30am, following sets from rap duo Ratking, London quartet Telegram and US newcomers Public Access TV, the Birmingham band entered to a packed venue, with a backdrop showing the artwork to recent single ‘Money’ adorning the stage.

Kicking off with early single ‘Follow Baby’, the band, fronted by a leather jacket-wearing Harry Koisser, then continued with ‘Money’ – the first single to be taken from their forthcoming second album.

Opting not to talk between songs, the group then went straight into a trio of tracks from 2013 debut ‘In Love’. ‘Higher Than The Sun’, which opens the album, came first, with the front section of the crowd cheering and starting mosh pits, while ballad ‘Float Forever’ received a sing-a-long reaction from the hugely enthusiastic audience.

Old single ‘Lovesick’ then incited the most tangible reaction of the set to that point, before Koisser introduced ‘1998 (Delicious)’ – taken from early EP ‘Delicious’ – which saw full circle pits forming during the climax of the track’s eight minute run.

Peace then went straight into another previous single, ‘Wraith’, before Koisser declared that “we’re gonna road test a new one so we’ll see if you like it”. The band then played ‘Lost On Me’, an upbeat track also taken from the new record, before continuing with debut single ‘Bloodshake’ and fan favourite ‘California Daze’ – which was sung back word for word by the crowd.

Announcing that the next song would be their last, the group then finished with another new track ‘World Pleasure’, culminating in a bass-heavy, instrumental climax, before exiting to huge applause.

‘Follow Baby’
‘Money’
‘Higher Than The Sun’
‘Float Forever’
‘Lovesick’
‘1998 (Delicious)’
‘Wraith”
‘Lost On Me’
‘Bloodshake’
