Indie powerhouses Peace have announced their third studio album ‘Kindness is The New Rock And Roll’ today (February 15) along with a UK tour in May.
The Birmingham quartet have kept quiet since the release of 2015’s Happy People until the end of last year with the release of their single ‘From Under Liquid Glass’.
Now, with last week’s release ‘Power’, the band will be including both singles in ‘Kindness is The New Rock And Roll’ which is due out on May 4th.
Lead singer Harry Koisser said in a post on Facebook: “My studies in the whole Rock & Roll is dead versus Rock & Roll will never die investigation have led me to believe this: After generations of focused monetisation, corporate contamination & moral depravation, Dead lies the cadaver of rock and roll past. But of course, as we know from the fabric of our own universe, Death is a doorway into life.
“Thus, upon death, born is the New rock & roll, free of it’s former warts & boasting a very simple mantra, That everyone can make the world a better place by being a lil’ kinder.
“Some people love guitars, Some people hate electronic computer music, some people hate both but if we respect the union of opposing forces, it becomes clear that simply none of that matters.
“What I’m trying to say is that rock and roll is dead & also rock and roll will never die but if you take a closer look, Kindness actually is, the new rock and roll.”
