Referencing the glory days of hair metal’s reign, the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Japan-by-way-of-planet-Peelander foursome, Peelander-Z, poured over hundreds of gear reviews and blogs, and started collecting era-appropriate gear to construct the new album Metalander-Z, a recording that is both completely of its time and completely timeless.
Metalander-Z’s lead single is “Ride On The Shooting Star,” which recently premiered via USA Today and now has an accompanying video, streaming now via MTV Hive. Directed by Rand Borden from monster battle federation Kaiju Big Battel, the clip depicts the story of Peelander-Purple’s journey to Earth from Planet Peelander. “He was super bad boy before, but he is our friend right now!!!,” says band leader Peelander-Yellow.
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.
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.” The band has also been covered by Rolling Stone, SPIN, the Village Voice, NPR and The Onion among many others. Peelander-Z is currently in the midst of a 35-date nationwide tour in support of Metalander-Z. See below for the remaining itinerary.
