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 reveals the video for “Star Bowling” today. The clip is for the first single from the band’s upcoming new studio album Space Vacation, which is set for release April 10th, 2012 on the Austin-based label Chicken Ranch Records.

Chicken Ranch main man Mike Dickinson says “I think the Zellners did a fantastic job of combining the Peelander-Z space theme of the song with a Devo-ish strangeness.  The video reminds me a lot of the early Devo videos.”

Peelander-Z will have a busy week at South By Southwest.  See below for dates in Austin which include the all-day Peelander-Z-curated Peelander Fest (LINK) on Saturday and the Peelander Family Jamboree for kids (LINK) on Sunday.

Comprised of color–coded band members Peelander–Yellow, Peelander–Red, Peelander–Green (and at various times Peelander–Pink and Peelander–Black), Peelander–Z made its greatest impact to date in 2011 with the greatest hits album Super DX Hitz, sell–out shows around the US and Canada and a stint as the band all of the other bands had to see on last Summer’s Vans Warped Tour.

All of these good times can be heard on Space Vacation, which, for a band that already is known for having a good times (those who have seen the band live will never forget “human bowling”), sets the bar pretty high.  Peelander–Pink even steps to the mike with her take on the Cyndi Lauper classic “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

Peelander-Yellow of Peelander-Z is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
