PEPPER, comprised of guitarist/vocalist Kaleo Wassman, bassist/vocalist Bret Bollinger and drummer Yesod Williams, mix their Hawaiian rock "shock and awe" flare, along with their mellow island rhythms and funky sexual roots to create their own truly diverse sound. They have cultivated a relationship with die-hards around the world; fans that are all in on the inside joke of the band's own vernacular, controversial antics and innuendos.
PEPPER has sold over half a million records independently and founded their own record label, LAW Records. Among PEPPER's many singles, "Give it Up" (Dirty Hot Sex) has become one of KROQ's most played and favorite re-currents, reaching #34 on the Billboard charts for 18 consecutive weeks, while the single "No Control" reached #19 off their album No Shame for four consecutive weeks. Their music has been featured in hit movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Good Luck Chuck and has also become a staple with MTV programming, including the hit show Living Lahaina.
PEPPER's non-stop touring has gained them a loyal following, achieving a perennial faved alumni status on 311's Unity Tour (2010, 2009), The Vans Warped Tour (2007), as well as sharing the stage recently with hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, reggae innovators The Wailers and close friends Slightly Stoopid; to name a few. In addition to Vans Warped Tour, PEPPER has performed at major festivals including Mile High Festival, West Beach Music Festival, Miami Sun Fest, Sunset Strip Music Fest and many others.
PEPPER recently released their newest EP Stitches on October 12, 2010 featuring their single "Drunk Girl". The band will debut a live 3-D music video for "Drunk Girl" which will be available globally in the digital world by December 2010. PEPPER filmed "Drunk Girl" live on location at The Grove in Anaheim, CA on October, 15, 2010, the opening night of their current "Like A Surgeon". The song has already landed rotation spins on San Francisco's Live 105 FM, West Palm Beach's Buzz 103 FM radio stations, and 99x in Atlanta; to name a few.
