Brooklyn-by-way-of-Japan-by-way-of-planet-Peelander foursome, Peelander-Z launches a 50-date tour tonight at SXSW at the Chicken Ranch Records showcase at Valhalla in Austin.  Peelander-Z takes the stage at midnight.  The band will perform several more times throughout the week including shows at the Fader Fort, and the band’s own Peelander-Fest and Mad Tiger Festival.  A complete Peelander-Z tour itinerary can be found below. Band leader Peelander-Yellow recently discussed the upcoming tour with industry bible Pollstar.  Read the interview here.

Following SXSW, Peelander-Z will embark on a cross-country trek that will keep the band occupied until mid-May supporting its new album Metalander-Z, which references the glory days of hair metal’s reign.  Peelander-Z poured over hundreds of gear reviews and blogs, and started collecting era-appropriate gear to construct Metalander-Z, a recording that is both completely of its time and completely timeless.  The album’s latest single “Killer Thunder” can be heard via an exclusive premiere at The A.V. Club.

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