The rising North-East band Vice Killer have returned with their great new single, ‘Where Can I Find Some Peace?’. This new track follows up their previous release ‘The Red Sky’ which drew plaudits from several quarters of the industry and press including NARC Magazine.
Recorded at Newcastle’s Blank Studios, ‘Where Can I Find Some Peace?’ was produced by Chris McManus. The song is intended as a sequel to the story that was told on ‘The Red Sky’ and represents how being happy can’t be forced upon people; some things take time to find your peace. Vice Killer have a growing reputation as a great live band and they have played this new track a few times live now. The band’s frontman Thomas Gilling had this to say, “'Where Can I Find Some Peace? is one of our favourite songs to play live. It creates a massive energy once the bass and the drums kick in. It would be a perfect song for a Guy Ritchie movie I think!”.
The band have recorded a music video with Blue Bandit Media who work all around the North-East of England. The music video was filmed in the stunning Durham, which is very close to where they are all from. Some of the video was also captured at our headline show in Newcastle at our favourite venue, Zerox.
On the writing process of the song, Thomas added, “I wanted to write something a little more upbeat, and after watching a performance of 'The Stone Roses - Fools Gold TOTP (1989)' I sat down with my acoustic and the rhythm/melody came straight away. I wrote the lyrics within probably 15 minutes and the song was done. I didn't want to dwell too much on the words, and just sing what I was feeling. We jammed the song in our practice room, taking inspiration from the Madchester scene of the 90's as well as the soul of Curtis Mayfields 'Move On Up'”.
Vice Killer released their debut EP in 2021 and they quickly gained momentum, headlining sold-out shows in Sunderland and Newcastle in 2022 and they were also featured on BBC Introducing.
Vice Killer have a couple of exciting gigs coming up too - firstly at The Darlington Forum on Saturday 12th August and at then The Georgian Theatre on Saturday 2nd September.
