Peelander-Z @ Public Assembly for BV-CMJ 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Japanese action comic punks Peelander-Z are headed this way on a spring North American tour, reaching Reggie's Music Joint on May 16. Advance tickets are on sale. If you haven't yet seen the band live: their shows are tons of fun. "Planet Peelander" will deliver us their new record, Space Vacation, on April 10. Check out the album's lead single "Star Bowling" over at BrooklynVegan.

During CMJ, we filmed a bunch of bands playing sessions in our green room. Peelander opted to be filmed right on the street and wrote BrooklynVegan a theme song.

Check that fantastic clip out below, along with all 2012 tour dates.
