Peelander-Z reveals “Star Bowling” single from upcoming all-new studio album.
“Space Vacation” full-length set for release April 10th. Band back out on tour now.

“There is no escape from the grind like the Peelander escape from the grind.” – The Fader
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 “Star Bowling” today, the first single from its upcoming new studio album. Space Vacation, the band’s seventh full-length, is set for release April 10th, 2012 on the Austin-based label Chicken Ranch Records.
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.”
A video for “Star Bowling” shot by filmmaking siblings The Zellner Brothers will make its world premiere at a special event at the Beauty Ballroom at this year’s SXSW festival on March 11th to be followed by several performances by Peelander–Z throughout the week. See below for the band’s upcoming tour dates and SXSW appearances.
Peelander–Z’s seventh album Space Vacation will be released via Chicken Ranch Records on April 10th, 2012. The album will be available on CD, vinyl and digital and as a special collector’s version including a DVD and limited edition Peelander–Z comic book featuring artwork by John Holmstrom (famous for illustrating the covers of The Ramones albums Rocket to Russia and Road To Ruin).
Peelander-Yellow of Peelander-Z is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
