Like Japanese Action Comic Punk? Then you will love the new album from Peelander-Z, Metalander-Z. The 8th album from the group, released Sept 10th, finds them traveling back in time into the 1980’s glam, hair metal era. With influences from bands such as Motley Crue, Cinderella, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and Van Halen, hair metal fans everywhere will enjoy this authentically recreated sounds of the hair metal era.

  Along with a fun video soon to come for the 1st single off the album, “Ride On The Shooting Star”, Peelander has begun on a must see tour. Famous for their crazy, crowd precipitation shows where anything and everything can happen from human bowling, jump roping, and doing the limbo. You may even find yourself on stage playing the drums or bass while the band watches on! If you haven’t seen them do yourself a favor and go enjoy a night out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.


  You can catch them on Sept 12th at Frankie’s in Toledo for the first of three shows in Ohio. If you are lucky enough to be going to Riotfest in Chicago on you can catch them there as well on 9/15. For more info find them on Facebook  or goto
