Suicide Squeeze is proud to announce the signing of the Vancouver-based band, Peace. The band is offering a taste with the new MP3, “Your Hand In Mine” (See Spin debut July 31).
Listen/Post “Your Hand In Mine” MP3
Peace recorded its sophomore LP in Pamela Anderson’s hometown, a fogged-in hamlet named Ladysmith on the east coast of Vancouver Island. The World is Too Much With Us builds on the depth and drama latent in Peace’s sound. Connor’s bass-lines menace and hypnotize. Mike’s guitar solos explode suddenly in wah-pedal freak-outs. Geoff’s tom-toms thud with a tribal intensity. And Dan’s lyrics, for which he’s been referred to as Vancouver’s “post-punk poet laureate”, alternate between images of defiant despair and love-sick yearning.
The album caught the attention this summer of Suicide Squeeze Record’s David Dickenson, who signed the band not long after. He’ll be releasing The World Is Too Much With Us worldwide on October 16, 2012. Catch Peace on tour across North America that same month, as they hit the road seeking fame and fortune — or something equally absurd.
