Finally time to bring Peace to Canada

Peace-band-photoThe quartet formerly known as November and the Criminal have come to terms with their inevitable end and finally made Peace.

The English foursome from Worcester, lead by Koisser brothers Harry and Samuel, and completed by friends Douglas Castle and Dominic Boyce, have played in many bands together throughout their musical relationship, but with their ne formation as Peace, Harry says that it feels right.

N&TC was our band in college. And it was fantastic. But it came to an end and then we wrote some songs and started Peace. I guess everything. It was over quite a long time.”

“They [past bands] were for entering the high-school battle of the bands or playing at the scout hut,” said Harry. “Peace definitely feels like our first real band.”

Since their inception, they’ve been receiving accolades of all sorts and from every angle, such as being nominated for BBC’s Sound of 2013 poll for prominent new talent, and it wasn’t long before they were signed to Columbia Records.

When asked, Harry said it didn’t hit him at first that it happened so quickly for Peace, because they’ve all been playing together for so long, but it’s quite a feat in the first couple of years to be making strong waves.

“It didn’t seem so fast, I didn’t know what it was, but really it’s great to be nominated for anything.”

The band released an EP titled Delicious in 2012, and earlier this year followed up with their first full-length In Love. The group is now set to tour the world, starting with a show in Toronto Tuesday, Oct. 15, at the Danforth Music Hall along with Two Door Cinema Club.

Harry said he’s not sure how it’ll compare to home, but they’re stoked to play in Canada for their first time.

“I have no idea how it compares to the UK. We’ve never been there. I’m sure it’s amazing. I’ve heard everyone’s absolutely delightful. I’m psyched.”
