The Pierces announce new LP, unveil new single Kings
Story by Jack Foley
THE Pierces have unveiled a stunning new song and details of their forthcoming new album.
Kings is the first track to be unveiled from Allison and Catherine Pierce’s new record, Creation, which is due out on Polydor on June 2, 2014. It will be preceded by the Believe In Me EP on March 31.
Kings is a leap forward for the duo, while also carrying the harmonic hallmarks of their past work. With its soaring chorus and syncopated, swaggering groove, it revolves around the sort of indelible hook that crowds holler along to at the top of their lungs at festivals.
The Pierces shot to prominence with their 2011 album You & I, featuring huge radio hits such as You’ll Be Mine, Glorious and It Will Not Be Forgotten. It entered the UK charts at number four and embarked on a long stay in the Top 20.
After all that touring, there was a brief period where the sisters were living on opposite sides of the world: Allison shuttling between London and New York and Catherine leaving New York and settling in Los Angeles.
After Allison moved to LA too, both entered a prolific creative phase that sowed the seeds for their new record. Creation was produced in its entirety by guitarist Christian “Leggy” Langdon, the group’s on-tour musical director.
