Vancouver’s Peace Sign to Suicide Squeeze for ‘The World Is Too Much With Us’





By Gregory Adams
 
Seattle’s Suicide Squeeze imprint is clearly in the midst of an infatuation with its neighbours to the north in Vancouver. As previously reported, the label issues Nü Sensae’s Sundowning next Tuesday (August 7), and now the label has added another of Lotusland’s punk-oriented bands, Peace, to its roster. 

The group’s sophomore set The World Is Too Much With Us will be delivered October 16. That’s the album art for the William Wordsworth-referencing LP, a photo of fiery-haired guitarist Mike Willock honking down on a big banana in a public park, up above.

Like last year’s full-length debut My FaceThe World Is Too Much With Us was recorded over at Jordan Koop’s the Noise Floor studio in Ladysmith, BC. 

According to a press release, the album “builds on the depth and drama latent” of past work, while accentuating the dynamics between Willock’s wah-indebted leads, resident poet/guitarist Dan Geddes’s post-punk sing-speak, drummer Geoff Dembicki’s steady thud and the “crushing and repetitive” bass work of Connor Mayer.

Peace will apparently be taking off on tour this October, but the group’s tour itinerary has yet to be set in stone.

1. Your Hand In Mine
2. Fun and Games
3. The Perp Walk
