Palace announce the UK tour for 2017

FOLLOWING A SOLD OUT UK TOUR, PALACE ANNOUNCE MARCH & APRIL EUROPE / UK TOUR THAT WILL CULMINATE AT SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE ON 27TH

Watch the video for current single ‘It’s Over’ below

 

PALACE’s first show of 2016 was at the ICA, and, just like their previous show at Scala, sold out at speed. They have just finished a SOLD OUT headline UK tour that included Brixton Electric in London. They are now thrilled to announce a March and April Europe / UK tour that will culminate at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 27th

 

It’s been a whirlwind year for Palace, whose live success isn’t just retained in the UK; they have sold out shows across Europe and in New York. They spent the summer playing festivals across Europe, including rapturously received appearances at Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds.

 

And now, Palace have just released their dark, enchanting debut album ‘So Long Forever’. It is your cordial invite to Palace, this generation’s most moving evolution in alt-rock. They sing of heartbreak, family ructions, death and diving headfirst into relationships they know will destroy them. They make sumptuous, soulful rock music in a dour ex-munitions factory. They’re the fatalistic sound of the future.

 

It all adds up to a stirring, fine-crafted journey around the heart’s bruised chambers, and has been a cathartic turning point for front man Leo Wyndham, who recently went through a painful break up. “I now have this sense of freedom, creatively,” he says. “When you suddenly find yourself on your own again out of a long relationship. It’s nice to be able to channel everything into the music. It helps a lot.” He grins. “I’m trying to be positive.”
