Birmingham-born rockers PEACE have made massive strides in British music with their debut single 'Follow Baby'. With masses of support through Radio 1 and the NME, they've caught the eye of none other than music industry stalwarts Columbia Records, who’ve announced their signing today.

Here's what the four-piece had to say in celebration of the contract:

"Signing with Columbia means that we are going to pour our everything over the next whatever into creating a record & basically no one can stop us. Not reality nor consequence. It's a bit like getting knocked up. We just had some unprotected sex with Columbia & we're keeping it.We demanded a billboard from the label kind of as a joke and they 100% pulled through. It's one of those moments where the joke goes just far enough before someone gets hurt. No one is hurting."

They've made no mistake in their boorish touring; recent sets at the Camden Crawl, The Great Escape and support slots with the Mystery Jets and The Manic Street Preachers showcase the fact. Here are their tour plans for the rest of the year.
