London-based Palace return today with the first taste of their third album and the announcement of their biggest UK and European tours to date. The new single ‘Gravity’ is a woozy, swirling reflection on existentialism that spirals into a soaring breakdown that’s sure to be a crowd favourite by the time the band hit the road next February.
“Gravity is about the perspective-shifting realisation of our own insignificance- that we are all just atoms of air and water in an infinite universe.” says frontman Leo Wyndham; “It’s these sobering night-time thoughts that can keep us awake in a state of paranoia, doubting our own purpose and place.”

2019’s sophomore album ‘Life After’ is a stunning record with a clear message; hope. Its eleven tracks, which include the heart-wrenching ‘Heaven Up There’, are full of the melodic warmth and rich textures that have come to define Palace’s sound. It is an album in equal parts about loss as well as a manual to moving on, stronger than before.
Having built a dedicated live following through mesmerising shows at some of the country’s finest venues, Palace played some of the world’s biggest festivals in 2019 including main stage slots at Mad Cool, Latitude and Glastonbury’s Park Stage before an autumn tour culminating at their biggest show ever at a sold-out Camden Roundhouse. The band kicked off 2020 by selling out their debut USA tour ahead of returning to the studio to start work on their third album. With a host of new 2022 UK & European dates now confirmed, Palace are set to continue their enviable trajectory upwards through the best venues the world over.
Leo Wyndham, Matt Hodges and Rupert Turner released their acclaimed debut EP ‘Lost In The Night’ in 2014, followed by the ‘Chase The Light’ EP the following year, their debut album ‘So Long Forever’ in 2016 and sophomore album ‘Life After’ in 2019.
