Italian garage rock band The Peawees has released a brand new single entitled “Banana Tree.” The song will be featured on the band’s new full-length album, One Ride, out on September 6th. The new album will appear worldwide on digital and vinyl formats via Wild Honey Records on September 6th, 2024 with exclusive license to Folc Records in Spain and Spaghetty Town Records in North America.

Formed in 1995 in the small Italian military town of La Spezia by three teenagers led by Hervé Peroncini, The Peawees have spent over 25 years crafting their unique blend of Punk Rock infused with R’n’B, Roots Rock, Soul, and Garage influences.

“Banana Tree” is based on the true story of a convicted felon who escaped to the Canary Islands to start a new life working in a banana field, only to be eventually tracked down by authorities. Hervé Peroncini found inspiration for the song during the pandemic while in Tenerife, where he bought a guitar for 30 euros and wrote much of the band’s upcoming album.
