Palace Drop New Track Ahead Of Release Of Second Album Filled With Trademark Melodic Warmth & Rich Textures

As their sold-out UK tour has drawn to a close, Palace announce their forthcoming second album, Life After. with a brand new track, Martyr.

Life After is an album with a clear message; hope. Its eleven tracks are full of the melodic warmth and rich textures that hooked in fans with the release of their debut EP in 2014. 

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 the forthcoming album, following seven-minute track Heaven Up There and the deeply optimistic No Other. 

Leo Wyndham, Matt Hodges and Rupert Turner have been friends since they were thirteen and released their debut EP Lost In The Night in 2014, followed by the Chase The Light EP the following year and their debut album So Long Forever in 2016. 

The strength of those releases lead to extensive touring, ever-larger festival slots and culminating in a sold-out UK headline tour including London's Shepherds Bush Empire. 

Palace's new album 'Life After' will be released on 12th July 2019. CLICK HERE for info.
