Chester indie-pop trio PEANESS are delighted to announce that they will appear as main support on Maximo Park‘s forthcoming sold out October 2021 headline tour dates (see below for listings).
The band can also finally reveal that they have been hard at work on their long-awaited debut album, with lead single What’s The Use? released on 22nd October 2021, and the full record set for release in 2022 – further details will follow soon.
The bumper news comes alongside an already packed upcoming live schedule for the band over the next few months, which sees them warmly embracing the return of live music and appearing at Green Man Festival, Doune The Rabbit Hole, FarmFest, FESTEVOL, Manchester Psych Fest, Confessional Festival, and Hit The North.
The band also have several headline dates booked in, with their biggest ever London headline show at Oslo coming up on 18th November 2021—limited remaining tickets are on sale now.
Just like everyone else, Peaness had to adapt and overcome during the last 18 months. The pressures of performing live stream events and interacting with fans in new ways left them individually overwhelmed and anxious, so instead of focusing on live music, they turned their friendship into a podcast.
The first episode of Happeaness went live in October 2020, a fortnightly podcast where the trio talk about current affairs, their personal lives, recall past band adventures and occasionally have guests on to join them—notable names so far include Keith Murray (We Are Scientists), Liz Stokes (The Beths), and Sid Hand-Halford (The Orielles).
Further details of the debut album and lead single will be revealed over the coming weeks. The band will perform at The Leadmill in Sheffield on 5th October 2021.
