With their sublime second album Palace have pulled off a rare pop trick. Songs steeped in darkness emerge into light, bleaking situations spring fresh starts. Bathed in the atmospheric progressive the future feels brighter and more optimistic “Life After” is both an album about loss and a manual to moving on. The band didn’t start their second album with any plans in place. Buoyed by the reception of their debut album and two years of sold-out festival slots that won them worldwide fans, the London-based trio found confidence that they were keen to capture. Released July 12th 2019 via Fiction the New Album is available on CD, LP and Digital at The Official Rough Trade Store. “Hope and positivity, seeing the light at the end of a long tunnel. It’s about going through tough times and coming out the other side.” -Leo Wyndham
