Peach Pit was brought to life in 2016 with the release of their now coveted debut EP, “Sweet F.A”. Originating in Vancouver, Canada, the group formed when high school pals, Smith and Chris Vanderkooy, decided to collaborate on a musical project. Peter Wilton and Mikey Pascuzzi joined them on bass and drums creating their "chewed bubblegum pop" sound.
The group quickly developed a dedicated local fan base through their energetic live shows. In February 2017, a YouTube channel sent their self-titled track, “Peach Pit” viral after discovering it on their Bandcamp. The group quickly started to amass an international following and booking requests to play worldwide.
Peach Pit’s quirky online posts and campy Ned Flanders-esque uniforms have ignited a highly engaged fan base. They’ve now released their debut LP, “Being So Normal”, on the Vancouver based indie label Kingfisher Bluez in September of 2017 and are hitting the road non stop touring the U.S. and Canada with a European tour in early 2018.
Peach Pit has quickly become the next big indie act to watch out for in the Pacific Northwest.
