Based out of Kamloops, BC, PEACE is a funk-rock quintet comprised of two guitarists, a bassist, a percussionist, and an additional bassist. The band’s music is multi-culti-folk-hop, a socially-conscious jam-slam avalanche of killer hooks and fantastic grooves. With influences ranging from 311 to Rusted Root, the end result is a jah-monkey trance sound that is minimal, maximal, tasty and tight. Got it? Good.
In recent years, PEACE has averaged 85 shows annually—including tour sup- port for Mount Eerie and an appearance at What-the-Heck Fest—both at home in British Columbia and on the road. The band is currently working with Maple Booking (Hamilton, ON) and is sure to see an increase in their shows upon the release of this debut album. They have also played Pendleton, Oregon with YACHT.
After starting out as Squad Boys in 2003—their three-song demo cd, featuring the blazing non-album cut “Hamburgers” is desperately out of print—the group changed their name to PEACE and recorded “ON EARTH” with Phil Elverum
in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With uzi-like melodies and an uncanny sense of the rhythms of human sex, “ON EARTH” is a loose cannon, heart-on-the-crotch love letter to the world at large. There’s just one question: is the world ready for aggressive PEACE?
