Peace share ‘Gen Strange’ video starring footballer Peter Crouch – watch

The Stoke City and England footballer feature in the clip for the band's 'Happy People' track

Stoke City and England footballer Peter Crouch stars in the new video from Peace.

Having released their second album ‘Happy People’ in February, the British band have now unveiled a clip for its track ‘Gem Strange’. The album itself was produced by Jim Abbiss and Duncan Mill, the follow up to 2013 debut ‘In Love’.

In the clip, Crouch plays the member of a gang that call Peace, who themselves play an alter-ego group called The Toadz, “fucking emos”. Watch the new Peace video below.


In December of last year, Peter Crouch was filmed crowdsurfing at a Kasabian concert.

In February, Peace released a behind-the-scenes look at their new album featuring Noel Fielding. The video showed the band talking through the album and explaining the meaning behind each song. Fielding starred as an older version of guitarist Doug Castle who has become a girl after becoming inspired by one song on the album titled ‘I’m A Girl’.
