“There are certain bands one absolutely must see live: Kiss. Gwar. Peelander-Z.” – USA Today

“Standing on the sidelines is not an option when Peelander–Z hits the stage.” – Time Out New York

“There is no escape from the grind like the Peelander escape from the grind.” – The Fader

Peelander–Z put sanity in a headlock...” – Alternative Press


Check out the premiere of “Ride On The Shooting Star” by Peelander-Z courtesy of USA Today’s “Pop Candy” column!

“Action Comic Punk Band” Peelander-Z can now amend that description of its sound to “Action Comic Metal Band.”  Referencing the glory days of hair metal’s reign, the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Japan-by-way-of-planet-Peelander foursome Peelander-Z, along with the band’s team of sonic engineers, absorbed hundreds of gear reviews and blogs, and started collecting era-appropriate guitar gear to construct the upcoming new Peelander-Z album Metalander-Z, a recording that is both completely of its time and completely timeless.

The album (the band’s eighth studio recording) is set for release on September 10th, 2013 via Austin’s Chicken Ranch Records and nothing will ever be the same.  Some of the albums that inspired Metalander-Z include AC/DC’s High Voltage, Cinderella’s Night Songs, Def Leppard’s Pyromania, Iron Maiden’s Number of The Beast, Motley Crue’s Too Fast For Love, Van Halen’s 1984, and ZZ Top’s Eliminator.

Metalander-Z’s lead single is “Ride On The Shooting Star,” about which band leader Peelander-Yellow says, “Don’t stay at home, let’s go to see Milky Way with flying shining shooting star!!! We need long hair (wig is fine), cool metal tee, dyed jeans, and go to karaoke bar!!! Then sing this song!!!  Ohhh yeahhh!!! This is answer for beautiful hair metals!!!”  The song can now be heard via USA Today’s “Pop Candy” column and Peelander-Z will hit the road (including two Riot Fest appearances) the day after the album’s release on September 10th.  See below for dates.

Peelander-Yellow of Peelander-Z is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information, guest list needs, etc.
