Welsh rockers Kids in Glass Houses were last on the road in 2011 after the release of last album “In Gold Blood”. Two years later and the Welsh lads are back with a bang with the release of new album “Peace” introducing a new sound their style whilst staying true to themselves and the fans.
Opening with their new album’s title track, “Peace”, Kids in Glass Houses certainly awakened the crowd giving them a taster of the set to come as well as setting the tone of the band’s musical direction. As “Peace” was only released mid-way through the tour, the show did not contain a vast amount of songs from the new album but a vivid collection of crowd pleasers from the back catalogue of fan favourite singles.
Among the highlights of the night were singles such as “Set Me Free” (Peace) which particularly stood out in the set as fans screamed the lyrics back at frontman Aled Phillips and jumped in unison with him as he ran and jumped along the stage, occasionally throwing himself into the front row of the crowd throughout the song. It was however older anthems such as “The Best is yet to Come”, “Matters at All” (Dirt 2010) and “Give me What I Want” (Smart Casual 2008) that were the standout moments of the set. Every member of the venue cheered and sang every word as the show drew to a close, ending with “Matters at All”.
With this performance Kids In Glass Houses showed that there is still plenty to come from them and armed with their new album Peace they will hopefully move on to bigger and better things. Peace is out now on Transmission Recordings. You can also follow Kids In Glass Houses on Twitter at @KIGHOfficial.
