Peaking Lights return with their brilliant new album 'Lucifer' (Weird World Records).

Recorded in Brooklyn at Gary's Electric studio over the course of a month and self-produced with the help of engineer Al Carson (Yeasayer, Oneohtrix Point Never), Peaking Lights consider ‘Lucifer’ a nocturnal version of their sound. “To us this record is about play and playfulness, unconditional love, rhythms and pulses, creation and vibration,” says Coyes. ‘Lucifer’ is also Peaking Lights’ most ambitious release to date in terms of its approach and scope – boasting much to please anyone previously seduced by the genre-defying, gritty grooves and enchanting, sensual melodies of the band’s earlier work but also proving an altogether more heavy, propulsive and focused effort.

Peaking Lights are playing live at Beacons Festival, North Yorkshire on 17th August and Green Man Festival, Glanusk Park on 19th/19th August.
