The offical press release!

Peelander-Z – the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band – will follow-up its 2014 full-length hair metal tribute album Metalander-Z with what can only be referred to as a “back to basics” album from the group. Go PZ Go will be released via Chicken Ranch Records on April 6th. The album will be preceded by several singles and videos, including the animated clip for “Go PZ Go / Yeah Yeah Yeah,” directed by comedy writer, director, and animator, Jimbo Matison. The video “done solely with paper and pencils” was premiered last week via Yahoo! Entertainment which also called the clip “fun and stunning.”

Go PZ Go is not only the follow-up to Peelander-Z’s 2014 album; it comes on the heels of a much heralded documentary about the band “Mad Tiger.” The film, directed by Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein, was acquired by Film Movement after a successful festival circuit run following its premiere at New York’s IFC Center during DOC NYC. “Mad Tiger” ultimately went on to a nationwide theatrical release and can now be seen via Netflix.

Now, with Go PZ Go, the band also delivers its most listenable album, one that doesn’t merely act as a fun souvenir and reminder of the memorable experiences that Peelander-Z brings in its live performances. In fact, Go PZ Go is an addictive record all on its own that will appeal to any true punk rocker – young (the fans that Peelander-Z regularly calls up on stage to take over their instruments) and old (those who may only have the stamina to put headphones on in the comfort of their living rooms.)

As usual, the release of Go PZ Go on April 6th will be followed by another nationwide tour where Peelander-Z guarantees intense audience participation and will take the opportunity to “eat your smile,” as band-leader Peelander-Yellow terms what could ultimately be construed as the group’s mission statement. Further details and full itinerary forthcoming.

Go PZ Go, the ninth full-length album by Peelander-Z, is scheduled for release on April 6th, 2018 via Chicken Ranch Records. Members of Peelander-Z are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
