Peace is the debut album of stoner rock band Vista Chino. Featuring three former members of Kyuss, Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri and John Garcia, along with new guitarist, Bruno Fevery, who was born in Belgium and spent his youth in a Kyuss cover band. Originally known as Kyuss Lives!, but a lawsuit by former member Josh Homme forced the band to change its name before releasing this album.[1]

Guest appearances include Mike Dean of Corrosion of Conformity and bassist Chris Cockrell who appear on one track each.[2]

Napalm Records released the record on 2xLP in colored versions of red, green, blue, orange, gold, bone, and black.[3] Along with a limited edition digipak version of the CD featuring 2 bonus tracks.[4]

The album peaked at #14 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album chart.[5]

The Aquarian praised the album saying, "Peace not only captures much of what was so groundbreaking in Kyuss’ approach, but expands the scope and gives a modern impression."[16]

East Bay Express proclaimed "The dynamism between meandering, clean passages and desperately surging crunch is the best I've heard in a while."[17]

Spin noted "Garcia and Bjork still have that Kyuss character in spades on their debut, Peace, writing bulldozing stoner anthems that live up to the legend of their former band."[18]

Magnet Magazine placed Peace #1 on their best hard rock albums of 2013.[19]
