Peace have announced their return with news of a fourth album and two comeback shows in the coming months.

The Worcester band – now a duo of brothers Harry and Sam Koisser – will make their live return with dates at Birmingham’s The Mill on May 31, before a London date at The Colour Factory on June 1.

In addition, a fourth album is ready to go from the group – with ticket buyers being emailed a code to hear the new record on the group’s website, ahead of a fuller commercial release later this year.

Announcing their return, the group wrote: “Hello. You can listen to our new album in full right now on our cool new website . We will email you a password with every ticket to these shows. The record will be commercially released later this year but for now this is how we are going to share our music with the people that it means a lot to.”

Confirming the departure of guitarist Doug Castle and drummer Dom Boyce, they added: “Also, as some of you have noticed, we are no longer a 4 piece band. D&D have taken a different flight path and are soaring across different skies. But all with monstrously good vibes. So yes, we are a duo. We are not replacing them and Peace is entering a new era in an extremely meaningful way.

“These shows mark the explosion of a newer universe. A 2nd big bang. More to follow. Tickets on sale Wednesday 10am.”

The group’s debut album came in 2013’s In Love, which spawned hit singles such as ‘Wraith’, ‘California Daze’ and ‘Follow Baby’. They followed it with 2015’s ‘Happy People’ and 2018’s ‘Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll’.
