High octane powered Dutch machine Peter Pan Speedrock have confirmed and announced a Fall tour in the United States with Los Angeles based punk/metal hybrid Mondo Generator that has the hell ride begin in the city of Brotherly Love and conclude in the Emerald City.
This tour ends a thirteen year long hiatus and a long awaited return of Peter Pan Speedrock to US soil and it is perfect timing for them to do this. 2015 is a significant milestone in their world as they are marking twenty years strong as a band, the ten year anniversary of their Eindhoven based metal/punk festival Speedfest and a North American release of their latest album Buckle Up And Shove It!(first release in North America since 2005). Their success is accredited to a solid foundation, nonstop touring and a work ethic that’s as heavy as the 2015 lineup for Speedfest.
Their latest album Buckle Up And Shove It! was released across Europe by Suburban Records/Steamhammer and picked up earlier this year by Self Destructo Records for North American audiences. Fourteen powerful tracks that blend crushing metallic guitar, powerful low end bass and hammering drums that were recorded at their new in house recording Mecca Bootleg Studios in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Their career includes ten full lengths along with split albums with names like Zeke, Danko Jones, Batmobile, Gluecifer, V8 Wankers & Death Alley. Their workhorse ethic has taken their live shows across the European, Australian and North American continents with their first visit to the Asian continent occurring in wintertime. With this ethic, they draw themselves closer to their goal of surpassing The Ramones number of live shows played of 2,263.
“This album is an antidote to six-minute metal wannabe tunes bogged down with dragon lore and apocalyptic drivel. Peter Pan Speedrock is a souped-up, built to the hilt muscle car – loaded with power, reckless, and loud as fuck”. New Noise Magazine
“There’s something inherently likeable about Peter Pan Speedrock. Maybe it’s their awesomely awkward name. Maybe it’s their complete lack of pretentiousness. Maybe it’s because they play with a joyful abandon that American bands are afraid to for fear of appearing uncool. There’s a song in the middle of the album called “Loose Women and Loud Guitars”. If either of those things appeals to you-you’ll probably like this. Check out Buckle Up and Shove It!, it might just make you smile.” – Punk News
“It’s hard to believe that in the age of information overload that we live in that it’s possible to for there to be a cultural gap in Western Civilization. In the world of independent-underground music, there are still some amazing bands to stumble on and Peter Pan Speedrock is one of them.” – Varla Magazine
“It’ll leave you crippled, knee-knocked, decapitated and impaled on a stick. You’re gonna love it.” – Danko Jones
