Kinder things: Peace announce new album ‘Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll’

Peace announce new album ‘Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll’

They’ve also announced a UK tour for May!

After returning last Friday with the storming (very aptly titled) ‘Power’, Peace have announced their new album!

‘Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll’ is out on 4th May. The album follows a period of the band writing in a National Trust property in Hertfordshire and, after never really spending much time in the countryside, vocalist Harry Koisser found it to be a creative experience. He said: “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”.

They also headed to Woodstock to work with Simone Felice on the album, saying: ““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”. See the tracklisting below. 

01. Power 
02. Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll 
03. Silverlined 
04. You Don’t Walk Away From Love 
05. From Under Liquid Glass 
06. Magnificent 
07. Angel 
08. Shotgun Hallelujah 
09. Just A Ride 
10. Choose Love 

Peace have also announced that they’re off on a big tour of the UK in May! As well as previously-announced dates at Live at Leeds and Liverpool Sound City, they’ll be heading on a headline tour that kicks off in Glasgow and rounds off n Birmingham, with a date at London’s O2 Forum and much more in-between.
