Palace have released a new single, ‘Live Well‘, taken from their acclaimed debut album ‘So Long Forever‘, which dropped earlier this year on Fiction Records – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
A fan favourite, the track has been streamed over two million times on Spotify and showcases the band at their delicate, intricate best. The track is written about a relationship ending but ultimately finding positivity in its wake.
Palace are very excited to be touring as main support to Public Service Broadcasting, taking them to 12 venues across the UK, including London Eventim Apollo for the finale on October 26. Venues of this size are no stranger to the band, who made their debut at Shepherd’s Bush Empire this year in support of the album release, having previously sold out London shows at Brixton Electric, Scala and ICA.
It wasn’t just UK tours that Palace sold out last year; they sold out their European tour and a number of shows in New York. They also played rapturously received sets at festivals across Europe, including Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds. Closer to home they started their own night called ‘Palace Presents‘ at London’s The George Tavern where they played their first ever show and now curate their own monthly line-up. The night is always rammed, which helps support the 600-year-old venue which, like many other independent venues, is constantly threatened with closure.
Palace, who have been described as this generation’s most moving evolution in alt-rock, 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.
