Peace announce two UK headline shows for December – ticket details

They will play two big gigs in London and Birmingham this winter

Peace have announced plans for two UK shows this December.

The band will play London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on December 6 and the O2 Academy Birmingham on December 13. Tickets go on sale at 9am [BST] on June 26. They also play a sold-out Glastonbury warm-up show tomorrow (June 26) night at Birmingham’s The Institute. Of the two newly announced shows, frontman Harry Koisser said: “I’ve been promised budget for explosives, says it all really.”

Peace recently premiered the new video for their latest single ‘Lovesick’ – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch. The track, which is taken from the Birmingham band’s debut album ‘In Love’, will be released on July 8.

Speaking about the track and its accompanying video, Koisser said: “‘Lovesick’ is a really uncool song. Saying that, sometimes it’s not about anything except what you feel. And when you reach that place, things happen that are beautiful. Beautiful because they’re really really real.”

He went on to add: “It’s hard to say anything about the video. Maybe because I just woke up? Maybe because it’s such a straightforward classic video? I feel a bit like James Brown in that weird interview where he just sings his own song and says, ‘I look good, I smell good and I make love good’. I definitely don’t look or smell good though.”

Peace released ‘In Love’ in March of this year and saw the LP chart at Number 16 in the Official UK Album Charts. Speaking to NME about the record, Kossier said: “It’s a real mixed bag but there’s something for everyone on there. I don’t think it’s a bad thing to be eclectic.”
