Their new single 'Believe In Me' is out this week and will be followed up by their new album 'Creation' which is due for release on Polydor on June 2nd.
Their 2011 album 'You & I' made the Alabama-born siblings stars. They had released three albums by that point, over which they honed their melodic, folk-tinged indie-pop. Their fourth album propelled them to new heights. Featuring huge radio hits such as 'You'll Be Mine', 'Glorious' and 'It Will Not Be Forgotten', it entered the UK charts at number four and embarked on a long stay in the Top 20. The band followed it up with extensive touring and feted appearances at a number of festivals.
After all that touring, there was a brief period where the sisters were living on opposite sides of the world: Allison shuttling between London and New York and Catherine leaving New York and settling in Los Angeles. After Allison moved to LA too, both entered a prolific creative phase that sowed the seeds for their new record. 'Creation' was produced in its entirety by guitarist Christian 'Leggy' Langdon, the group's on-tour musical director. As the album's title suggests, it marks a brave new dawn for The Pierces. They have followed up their biggest success with their most life-affirming work yet.
