Hot on the heels of a live session for Marc Riley at BBC 6music, Chester indie-pop trio PEANESS are delighted to finally be able to announce details of their long-awaited debut album World Full Of Worry, set for release on 6th May 2022 through the band’s own label, Totally Snick Records.

To celebrate the news the trio have revealed a typically charming video for their new single ‘How I’m Feeling’, available on all good digital service providers from 19th January 2022.

The band are also pleased to announce an already-bumper live schedule for 2022 including an extensive run of May/June 2022 UK headline tour dates, 2022 festival appearances, and two celebratory October 2022 headline shows in Manchester and London (see below for full listings).

‘How I’m Feeling’ is the second single to be taken from forthcoming debut album World Full of Worry, and serves as the perfect taste of what fans can expect from the record. Commenting on the track, the band said: “In an unfulfilling job? Need a shake up with something in your life or you’ll go mad? Well, that’s ‘How I’m Feeling’ and it can’t be ignored anymore! Amongst self loathing and melancholy there are sparks of determination and a belief that you deserve more. I hope it works out.”

Closing out last year with their biggest headline show to date at Oslo in London and supporting BC Camplight at Manchester’s O2 Ritz, Peaness have spent the last six years quietly building a fanatic underground following with their sugar-sweet melancholy indie pop.

The forthcoming debut album’s lead single ‘What’s The Use?’ was released in October 2021 and spent a glorious four weeks on the BBC 6music C List, conquered the Radio X X-Posure playlist, received multiple plays from the late, great Janice Long and Adam Walton at BBC Wales, and picked up plenty of love from DORK Magazine, Lock Magazine, Louder Than War and more at music press. DSP support for ‘What’s The Use?’ included Spotify playlist additions to Shockwave, EQUAL and Hot New Bands—where the band also featured on the cover—plus additions to Apple Music’s New In Indie and Deezer’s Indie Pearls.

Snatching the brief window of sanity at the back end of 2021 to hit the road hard and fast, Peaness somehow zipped through a packed festival run last year appearing at the likes of Green Man Festival, FarmFest, FESTEVOL, Manchester Psych Fest, and Confessional Festival, before supporting Maximo Park on their headline UK tour dates.

Further album details and live dates will be revealed over the coming months.

Formed late 2014 in Chester university digs, Peaness write hook-saturated, fuzzy, harmony-driven indie-pop songs about love, friendship, and mid-twenties frustrations. The trio have been playing together since summer 2015, and their fun, friendship-fuelled live performances have been winning the hearts and minds of people up and down the country ever since.

They have toured extensively, securing nationwide and international shows with The Beths, Kero Kero Bonito, The Cribs, We Are Scientists, She Drew The Gun, The Big Moon, and Dream Wife, performing at festival-circuit favourites Green Man, Benicassim, TRUCK, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, Kendal Calling & Indietracks to name but a few.

Their releases to date have received backing from right across the spectrum at UK radio and press, including a live BBC 6music session with Marc Riley, multiple plays on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6music, and have become firm favourites on their local BBC Introducing stations BBC Radio Wales and BBC Merseyside.

The band have also received support from Radio X, including a live session with new music guru John Kennedy, as well as a multitude of press coverage from Kerrang! Magazine, Rolling Stone, Total Guitar, DORK, UPSET, CLASH, The Skinny, The 405, Tom Tom, Gold Flake Paint, Drowned in Sound and The Metro.

Forthcoming new single ‘What’s The Use?’ will be the first new material from the band since their 2020 AA side 7” release ‘Kaizen’/’Breakfast’, following on from their cult-hit 2017 EP Are You Sure? on Alcopop! Records.
