Over the past few months Peace have embarked on a huge UK tour in support of their brilliant, third album ‘Kindness is the new Rock and Roll’. We went with them, snapping exclusive behind the scenes photos at their gigs from Derby to Reading, and everywhere in between, and here frontman Harry Koisser lets us into his world and what went on tour, with his official commentary.

"Glamour is a state of mind."

"This is literally here because Nick Cave."
"I'm running out of caption ideas but this was in Bristol where we suffered "technical difficulties" for the first time ever."
