Stream Peace’s new album ‘Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll’

Their third album is packed with bangers.
Peace’s third album ‘Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll’ is out now!

Recorded in a farmhouse in the middle of a forest, frontman Harry Koisser explains: “I was a total townie. I spent six months out in an actual forest. It was very Hobbit-ish, very Hobbit-esque. Extremely isolating and scary”.

Recorded with Simon Felice (Bat For Lashes), Harry goes on to explains “Simone doesn’t do any sounds. He gets into your soul. He’ll take you into a room and touch your heart, he’ll drive you down into the Catskill Mountains and say, ‘Smell the pines! Go and splash your face in the stream!’ Then he’ll take you back to the studio.

“I never ever thought I could sing like that. Simone found that. He physically massaged it out of my chest with his hands.”

The title-track of the record is described in a press release as ‘classic McCartney meets ‘Be Here Now’ Oasis with a little interjection of a gospel-loving Primal Scream’. I wrote it in my own headspace and then it became more important as time went on,” Harry reveals. “I love the idea that rock & roll is not dead, it’s still here pushing the message that if you’re too busy to change the world just be a bit kinder. That’s the simplest way to make the world a better place.”

Peace hit the road to support the record this weekend, where they’ll play sets at both Live At Leeds and Newcastle’s Meet The North on Saturday. They’ll then head to Liverpool Sound City before taking on their own headline shows in Glasgow, Sheffield, York, Derby, Hull, Norwich, London, Southampton, Bristol, Reading, Leicester and Birmingham.
