Peace Release "The World Is Too Much With Us" on Suicide Squeeze

[press release] Suicide Squeeze Records is set to release Peace's The World Is Too Much With Us LP tomorrow.

The band 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.

Praise for Peace:

"It is as dark in tone and tenor as skies over Vancouver in December, heard clearly in the slightly acidic, Orange Juice-informed first listen "Your Hand In Mine," a moonlit number with a heavy heart and dead eyes." - SPIN.com

"Again, they have proven that rock 'n' roll can still be interesting, inventive, and melodic without feeling washed up and tired. Plus, Geddes knows how to write a hook like no one else." - Vice

"I first heard of the band Peace when I was at the Calgary music festival, Sled Island. The boys in Peace had been in an accident. Their car flipped on the highway, breaking all their equipment and almost killing three of the four of them. Regardless, they hopped on a bus and made it to the festival. They all took mushrooms before their show and managed to get back to Vancouver alive." - Hearty Magazine
