Punkrock band from Italy.

The story of the Peawees begins in La Spezia, back in 1995, when Hervé Peroncini, Riccardo La Lomia and Livio Montarese - following previous experiences in two other bands: [a=Manges, The] and Nukes - join forces and release the LP "Where People Smile" (Panic Records/Helter Skelter) in the same year, a debut album clearly based in punk rock, but with strong pop influences.

In 1998, the Peawees record "This Is Rock n Roll", their second album - released in Italy by Fridge Records and in the U.S. by Motherbox Records - and marks the first breaking point from the band's past: the influence of Californian punk rock, The Clash and The Ramones still echoes, but the cover of Elvis's Burning Love foreshadows the band's future path. At this stage The Peawees tour the U.S. (with twelve concert dates ranging from nationwide), and the noted Italian music magazine "Rumore" calls "This is Rock n' Roll" one of the ten best punk rock albums of 1998. The Peawees release a couple of singles on vinyl under as many English record labels, and the new line-up heads to the UK for a 13-date tour which allows the band to win over new fans outside of their home country. In the 21st century, the Peawees are universally recognized as one of the strongest rock and roll bands on the scene.

"Dead End City", their third album, released in 2001 (by Dutch label Stardumb Records), receives excellent reviews worldwide, and the band is interviewed by Maximum Rock n' Roll, the historic punk magazine based in San Francisco. Meanwhile they continue to perform across Europe, sharing stages with many punk rock legends including Radio Birdman, The Damned, The Dwarves, Bad Religion... etc

At the end of 2005, the band performs live shows and works on the new album, "Walking the Walk", released in 2007 by Wynona Records. Later re-released on vinyl by Italian label Radiation and California-based label It's Alive, the album enters the chart of the twenty bestselling independent records in Italy. There then follows a 36-date European tour, including the Dutch festival Rotterdam Rumble, alongside the Rip Offs and, once again, Radio Birdman.

In 2011 the fifth album, "Leave It Behind" (Wild Honey Records), an album that is able to travel effortlessly back in time yet still surge forward, moving past punk rock and opening the doors to the future.
