Hailing from the Z area of Planet Peelander (but now based in New York City by way of Japan), action comic punk band Peelander–Z has been vacationing on Earth long enough to make six albums and tour the land at a practically non–stop pace. Peelander–Z has now documented this trip on its seventh studio album Space Vacation, set for release on April 10th, 2012 via the Austin, Texas–based Chicken Ranch Records label.
Peelander–Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo and the Vans Warped Tour and has also been featured on TV programs such as VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and Comedy Central’s “Upright Citizens Brigade” among others. The band has also been covered by SPIN, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, NPR and The Onion among many others.
At its live shows, Peelander–Z guarantees intense audience participation and a chance to exercise. You’ll see the band in colorful costumes reminiscent of Japanese anime, though they describe their outfits as their skin. You’ll also see The Red Squid, human bowling and all around insanity. A Peelander–Z performance is a rare occasion for the entire family to rock out and have a great time.
