Listen to ‘Break The Silence’
‘One of our favourite new bands.’ – Huw Stephens

‘an echo drenched sound reminiscent of early Foals’ – Guardian
‘somewhere between Jeff Buckley and Kings of Leon.’ – Times
‘Possible successors to The Maccabees… Palace deal in theatrical melodies to tingle the spine.’ – NME

‘Languid and shimmery… the sweet-sad spot between indie emo and Sixties blues’ – Rolling Stone
PALACE return with ‘Break The Silence’; an atmospheric slice of spacious, glistening pop and the first single to be taken from their highly anticipated debut album. Given its first play via Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 and already Top 50 in Spotify’s Viral Chart, it is available now on Fiction Records.
Palace’s first show of 2016 will be at the ICA in June and sold out within just two weeks of going on sale. They are now thrilled to announce that they will be headlining Brixton Electric on 23rd November.
In late 2014 Palace released their debut EP ‘Lost in the Night’, which garnered an overwhelming amount of critical and fan support, with the NME proclaiming, “the award for the fastest rise of 2014 goes to Palace.” 2015 saw them embark on two UK and European tours that book-ended the release of their second EP ‘Chase The Light’, which received continued support from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Annie Mac, 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and XFM’s Georgie Rogers, Maz Tappuni, John Kennedyand Jo Good. They spent last summer in a whirlwind of festival performances including Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Blissfields, Kendall Calling, Glastonbury, Green Man and Bestival, to name just a few.
In the autumn they returned to The Arch – a creative nerve centre in deepest, darkest Tottenham packed with young artists, designers and musicians – to write their debut album, due for release this autumn.
“The Arch is damp and it’s dark, and it’s on a meter – so you never know when the lights will go off,” explains Leo of their grungy outpost of bohemia in London’s over-mortgaged heart. “But the atmosphere of the place seeps into the music.”
‘Break The Silence’ has been produced by Adam Jaffery (Beach Baby, Dev Hynes, Francis Lung) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (The Maccabees, Florence + the Machine, Wild Beasts).
Palace are Leo Wyndham (guitar, vocals), Rupert Turner (guitar), Will Dorey (bass) and Matt Hodges (drums).
