Palace have announced their sublime sophomore album ‘Life After’ alongside a UK tour including their biggest live show to date at Camden Roundhouse and a brand new track ‘Martyr’. ‘Life After’ follows Palace’s acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘So Long Forever’ and will be released on July 12th.
‘Martyr’ is the third track to be taken from ‘Life After’, following seven-minute track ‘Heaven Up There’ (Lauren Laverne’s ‘headphones moment’ on BBC 6 Music) and the deeply optimistic ‘No Other’. It’s another profoundly candid track from a band who have built a loyal global fanbase for their uniquely bittersweet arrangements. After demoing the tracks at their Tottenham studio The Arch, Palace turned to Catherine Marks (2018’s UK Producer of the Year; St Vincent, Wolf Alice and PJ Harvey) at Willesden’s Assault & Battery studios and Luke Smith (Foals, Slow Club) at Jump Studios in Tottenham to record the album in summer 2018.
Leo Wyndham, Matt Hodges and Rupert Turner have been friends since they were thirteen and released their acclaimed debut EP ‘Lost In The Night’ in 2014, followed by the ‘Chase The Light’ EP the following year and their debut album ‘So Long Forever’ in 2016. The strength of those releases saw their fanbase steadily grow, leading to extensive touring, ever-larger festival slots and culminating in a sold-out UK headline tour including London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.
Having built a dedicated live following through mesmerising shows at some of the country’s finest venues, Palace finish their comeback UK tour tonight with a sold-out show at Village Underground, and will play some of the world’s biggest festivals this summer before a November UK tour including their biggest show ever at the Camden Roundhouse, with tickets on sale now from https://zaphod.uk.vvhp.net/vvreg/13636-579390.html
