2009 was a watershed year for the unique “father-and-son” band (drummer Peter Lust is the father of front person Peter Alex Lust), starting with guitarist Lust Jr. being pulled onstage by seminal punk band NoFX to perform the song “Linoleum” at the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood and resoundingly winning over the raucous crowd; and ending with the band again being selected a “Hot 100 Unsigned Artist for 2009” by longtime respected trade publication, MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE. In between, they opened for Nations Afire at The Whiskey; opened for rock royalty the Blue Oyster Cult for the second consecutive year at the Canyon Club, where they also headlined; were interviewed by “Focus In The Mix” television show; released a new CD, “Live In SoCal;”perfomed with alt-rock front-runners Death By Stereo and A Static Lullaby in Long Beach; appeared with Korn at KROQ’s “Halos N’ Horns” Festival; opened for longtime rock gods, The Misfits, a third consecutive year, as well as the power/metal mainstays DragonForce, both at the fabled Ventura Theater; and were submitted for consideration for a Grammy nomination in eleven separate categories into the 52nd Grammys, the band’s fifth consecutive year receiving such an honor.
“By combining straightforward arrangements with instrumental virtuosity, the Piranhas
have achieved a sound that is remarkably powerful: simple without being sloppy, big without
being ostentatious (VENTURA COUNTY REPORTER). “Their sound is dark, moody, Socal punk/pop with unexpected flourishes” (ROCKWIRED).“They bring so much energy!” (VENTURA COUNTY STAR). “"The band’s mix of blues-punk-hard rock guitar, progressive rock drumming, emotional vocals, and razor-sharp clarinet harmonies creates a new breed of songs that are catchy but also have true emotion and musical attitude that are supported by Peter Alex’s lyrics," (L.A. TALK RADIO/LONDON GARCIA SHOW).
