Palace released their debut album ‘So Long Forever’ in 2016, and their sophomore album ‘Life After’ in 2019. Earlier this year, they dropped their third, ‘Shoals’. Frontman Leo Wyndham told NME in an interview that the album was written during the very first coronavirus lockdown in the UK in 2020, and its themes centre around both the mental and physical struggles experienced in isolation.
“My brain was like a conveyor belt of negative thoughts and a feeling of purposelessness. When music was taken away, I started to wonder what the fuck my purpose was,” he said.
To make matters worse, Wydnham was also infected with COVID, which resulted in his lungs being inflamed for nine months. “It felt like I had a clamp on my chest. I felt very lethargic and heavy, I had terrible chest cramps. I started to fear it might even threaten my career.”
In May, Palace toured North America with 21 sold-out shows. They will be playing a string of shows around Europe later this month, before heading back to North America for three festivals in September: Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, Format Festival in Bentonville and Portola Festival in San Francisco.
Palace’s 2022 Australian tour dates are:
Saturday 3 – Melbourne, The Croxton
Tuesday 6 – Brisbane, The Tivoli
Thursday 8 – Sydney, Roundhouse
