Peach Pit announce album and release new single, ‘Look Out!’
New album ‘From 2 to 3’ set to release March 4th accompanied by a UK tour in spring.
Indie rock band Peach Pit has announced today that their new album From 2 to 3 will be released globally on March 4, 2022 via RCA Records UK. Produced by Robbie Lackritz [Feist, Jack Johnson], the 11-track LP infuses more organic and acoustic elements into Peach Pit’s signature-smooth sound, with many band members playing multiple instruments on the record such as tambourine, cowbell, harmonica, lap steel, and more.
From 2 to 3 will be released both digitally and physically, including vinyl, and is available for pre-order now. The album features lead-track “Up Granville” as well as the new song “Look Out!,” released today alongside an official video, with cinematic visual directed by Lester Lyons-Hookham.
“From 2 to 3 is a collection of songs that were written late at night, alone in a small apartment with a hushed voice so as not to wake anyone. We’re excited to be releasing one of our favorites from the record called ‘Look Out!’; it’s a nod to the apartments and neighborhoods where we wrote these songs, and to the corner store attendants that sold us junk on those late nights. The guys and I and our long-time collaborator Lester also went on a road trip this summer and filmed some videos that we really feel capture the spirit of the music perfectly.”Neil Smith, Peach Pit
Coinciding with the album announcement, Peach Pit has also revealed a UK tour for spring 2022. The UK tour will kick off on 9th May in Dublin, Ireland, and includes stops in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol, Brighton, and Manchester, before concluding in London for a huge headline show at O2 Forum Kentish Town on 19th May.
The band offer a direct-to-fan ticket presale starting Monday, November 15 at 10 am local time, followed by the general on-sale for all markets Friday, November 19 at 10 am local time. Visit https://www.peachpitmusic.com/for tickets and more information.
From 2 to 3 marks Peach Pit’s third studio album. It follows their 2017 debut Being So Normal, which features their self-titled smash “Peach Pit,” as well as their 2020 sophomore LP You and Your Friends, which DIY Mag hailed as “12 tracks of infectious indie-pop gems” while Atwood Magazine described the band as being “at the cutting edge of the alternative music scene.” Led by “Up Granville” and “Look Out!,” From 2 to 3 ushers in an exciting new era of Peach Pit.
“We’re very excited about releasing new music; making records together is really one of the most fun things for us. But there’s nothing as exciting as the thought of playing live again. It’s something obviously everyone has missed so much, going to concerts, hanging out with your buds. And for us it’s by far the best part of what we get to do. And things are looking up, baby! We can’t wait to see everyone in 2022.”Neil Smith, Peach Pit
About Peach Pit
Through bad breakups, bouts of loneliness, existential crises, and even pandemics, true friends stick around. Instead of bending and breaking, their bonds crystallize in the roughest of rough patches. If friendship had a sound, it would be Peach Pit. The wistful grooves, glassy guitars, and sun-kissed melodies feel like they could only be made by musicians who have spent close to a lifetime (or at least half of their lives) together. The Vancouver quartet—Neil Smith (vocals, guitar), Chris Vanderkooy (guitar), Peter Wilton (bass), and Mikey Pascuzzi (drums) —trace their union back to high school. During 2016, they served up the self-titled single, “Peach Pit,” eclipsing north of 100 million total streams counting. The group continued to gain traction with their 2017 full-length debut, Being So Normal. Among many highlights, “Tommy’s Party” and “Alrighty Aphrodite” both surpassed 50 million Spotify streams as they graced the bills of festivals such as Shaky Knees Festival, Bonnaroo, Firefly Festival and many more. In 2020 Peach Pit revealed You and Your Friends, which DIY Mag hailed as “12 tracks of infectious indie-pop gems” while Atwood Magazine described the band as being “at the cutting edge of the alternative music scene.” Carrying this momentum into 2021, they kick off the next chapter of the band and their friendship with “Up Granville” and “Look Out!”
