ALBUM & TOUR NEWS: Palace’s ‘Life After’ out now, November 2019 dates


Following the July release of their sophomore album ‘Life After’, a sold-out February UK tour and a stellar Glastonbury Park Stage performance, Palace have released their third ‘Hoxa Sessions’ track, an acoustic version of album track ‘Berlin’. The band have also announced autumn UK and European tours, including their biggest live show to date at Camden Roundhouse on November 9th.

‘Life After’ follows Palace’s acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘So Long Forever’ and includes the heart-wrenching ‘Heaven Up There’ and current single ‘Running Wild’. It’s a profoundly candid album 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 have played some of the world’s biggest festivals this summer and will play an autumn tour including their biggest show ever at the Camden Roundhouse, with live dates below:
