London trio Palace have announced their sophomore album ‘Life After’ alongside brand new track ‘Martyr’. ‘Life After’ follows Palace’s acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘So Long Forever’ and will be released on July 12th.
‘Life After’ is an album with a clear message; hope. Its eleven tracks are full of the melodic warmth and rich textures. It is an album in equal parts about loss as well as a manual to moving on, stronger than before.
“While there are a couple of different threads to the record, ultimately there’s a romance to it alongside a feeling of looking to the future through a new lens.” Says frontman Leo; “While still being aware of the unknown, you can allow yourself to feel hopeful, stronger and grateful for what you’ve got.”
‘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 candid track from a band who have built a loyal global fanbase for their uniquely bittersweet arrangements.
Having built a dedicated live following through shows at some of the country’s finest venues, Palace will play some of the world’s biggest festivals this summer before a November UK tour including their biggest show at the Camden Roundhouse, with tickets on sale now.
