"I've not really gone through this before," he tells Spinner of trying to tour and watch the beloved sci-fi show. "I don't know what I'm gonna do because you know full well if I try and watch on the tour bus, like people will be in and out. People will be like eating chips and talking. It's going to be gross. "
Although not a nerdy 'Lost' theorist, Peacock says he's been thinking about how to stay up on the series while on the road, especially as communicating with friends and loved ones -- if he misses an episode -- could lead to spoilers.
"This is the thing -- my wife, she'll have watched it and so will everybody else, and they'll be talking about it and I'm gonna be like ... I don't know," he says, sighing.
Peacock reveals he's thinking of skipping traditional band post-show activities on Tuesdays to try and watch 'Lost' on the Internet in the late-night hours.
"Just for that one night of the week; for the other nights I can be normal and stuff. Yeah!" he says, laughing heartily. "Imagine like cutting a gig short because I've got to go off and watch 'Lost.'"
But before the 'Lost' tour madness begins, Peacock and his bandmates will be meeting up in Chicago ahead of their March 4 Vic Theatre trek opener, where they'll be discussing their next new tunes.
"We'll be there for a few days, discussing and going into what would be writing mode for the next album," he explains of the locale where they recorded their last album, 2009's 'A New Tide.' "We're going to be discussing how we want move forward on that and who we want to get involved and all the rest of the other wonderful discussions we have to make."
While it's possible to write songs on the road, Gomez -- whose members are spread among the Pacific, Eastern and Greenwich time zones -- usually organize recording sessions and do some work online.
"We've been able to share our tunes around a lot more, just firing them over to each other so that gets rid of the distance and the time," Peacock explains. "I'll be working on a song, I send over to singer/guitarist Ian Ball. It'll be like 'OK, stick a melody on this or stick whatever you want on it. Send it back.'"
Peacock says the new writing style has helped the group feel a bit less pressured: "Because you're out of the headspace of the studio, you get some perspective and maybe you can be a bit more ambitious with how far you want to take things, rather than eating up precious time in the studio sitting around trying to throw around things or experiment, you know?"
