“There is no peace for the wicked”
Defying gods and expectations in equal measure are Lexington, KY-based southern power pop-rockers Wicked Peace. Drawing from a range of influences as seemingly disparate as the members themselves, the band creates a singular sound that hints at their Appalachian roots without being beholden to them.
College is a natural breeding ground for many unsavory things, but for Wicked Peace all that was spreading was creative synchronicity. In 2013, frontman Tanner Blevins and guitarist Patrick Brumback shared a Morehead State dorm room hallway and musical dreams. With Tanner’s older sister/songwriter Amanda and drummer Logan Fields on board, the band quickly self-released 2014’s charmingly-DIY debut Conclusions, featuring personal, scornful laments of love lost, softened only by the abundant loose, acousti-pop catchiness at play that would become their template moving forward. They followed this up with 2015’s self-effacingly titled Growing Pain.
With a year of touring festivals and bars under their belts, the band traveled down to Music City to cut the fullest realization of their musical visions yet: The Edge EP, recorded at Blackbird Studio and released by Cherrymoon Media. 2017 saw a new single and sound with “All of Me,” hinting at more to come in 2018, including their latest release: “Halfway.”
“There WAS no peace for the wicked, but man, what a record! I was wrong.”
