The creative process behind “Banana Tree” began in an impromptu session in Alicante, where the band first arranged the song. Drummer Tommy Gonzalez reflects, “We had a lazy day off in Alicante shortly after COVID restrictions had been lifted. We stayed at a cool house with a pool. The house was under construction, and I was drinking a beer on a spare toilet that was sitting in the middle of the garden. Herve called us in to hear a new song, and we started arranging it on the couch. I was tapping the beat on my shoe with my sticks and the guys were playing along unplugged. It was our first try at ‘Banana Tree,’ but by the time we got to our next sound check, it was all we wanted to play.” Produced by HervC) Peroncini, Brown Barcella, and Alessio Lonati, “Banana Tree” is a testament to the band’s ability to blend raw energy with compelling storytelling. The B-side of the release will feature “Donb t Look Back,” originally by Billy Vera.

The release of “Banana Tree” is a prelude to The Peawees’ much-anticipated seventh album, “One Ride,” set to drop on September 6, 2024. This album will be preceded by five singles, including “The Wolf,” “Plastic Bullets,” “Lost In The Middle,” “Banana Tree,” and “Youb ll Never Be Mine Again,” which features Mary from Detroit Cobras on guitar. Following a spring tour in Spain with The Hellacopters, The Peawees will kick off their international tour in Spain on September 7, 2024. With accolades from Real Gone, Fear And Loathing, Freim TV, R+, and El Sotano Radio 3, The Peawees continue to be recognized as one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands in Europe, pushing the boundaries of the genre while staying true to their punk rock roots.
