Peace: ‘We’re going to start recording our third album before the second one’s out’

Birmingham band will release their second album in January 2015

Peace have revealed that they intend to start recording sessions for their third album before they release their second.

The as-yet-untitled second record was originally due for release this month (October 2014), however it has now been put back to January 2015.

In an interview in the new issue NME, on shelves and available digitally now, Peace have now said that they intend to start work on its follow up before the new release date. “I’ve written a load more songs ‘cause now’s the only time off we’re gonna have for a while,” said frontman Harry Koisser backstage at the band’s recent gig at the Rainbow in their hometown of Birmingham. “We’re actually going to start recording the third one before the second album’s out, which is very weird. I’ve never handed in my homework on time in my life.”

When asked to describe where the new tracks the band have written are headed, Koisser then labelled the new material “weird”. “[They’re] weird. One of them is a proper campfire acoustic song,” he said, before likening it to “when someone gets a guitar out at a party who can’t really play”.

Peace have so far revealed three songs from their January-slated album: ‘Money’, ‘World Pleasure’ and ‘Lost On Me’, which features a video of the band dancing themselves to death off the edge of a cliff.

In August, they played the Main Stage at the Reading and Leeds festivals, while this December the band will head out on tour in support of Bombay Bicycle Club.

The two bands will play:
Leicester De Montfort Hall (December 3)
Plymouth Pavilions (4)
Bournemouth BIC Solent Hall (5)
Manchester Apollo (7)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (10)
Edinburgh Usher Hall (11)
Newcastle 02 Academy (12)
London Earls Court Arena (13)
