Peepshow Change Band Moniker To States Of Panic
February 12, 2013
Peepshow have decided to change their band name to States Of Panic. The Scottish rockers have created a brand new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/STATESOFPANIC and encourage their fan base to follow them to their new home. To celebrate the name change States Of Panic are selling all remaining Peepshow merchandise at a 50% discount until supplies run out — to take advantage of this deal visit www.peepshowonline.co.uk/peepshow-store.
When asked about the name change guitarist Rusty Gill told SleazeRoxx.com, “There were several reasons for changing the name. We’ve encountered many problems with it over the years, namely the fact that we don’t have a trademark for it, other bands are also called Peepshow, and there is a very popular award winning TV show with the same name. There are also too many porn affiliated websites that show up in Google searches making it harder for new/younger fans to discover us. This also makes it a harder ‘brand’ to market for record companies and such. Given that we’ve grown and matured as a band it seemed like the best course of action, something we’ve been discussing since before we released ‘Brand New Breed’.
‘Brand New Breed’, the follow-up to 2009’s sold out album ‘Out For Blood’, was released independently in January of 2012, but the name change doesn’t mean the band is changing their sound. “As for musical direction, we’ve not made any conscious effort to change musical direction,” continues Gill. “The new album that we’re recording picks up where ‘Brand New Breed’ left off and is the next part in the saga that is the the Rise of the Masses and the Brand New Breed. The album will be called ‘No World Order’.”
