NEW record coming in 2013
New Video now released
Feisty (adj.) – having or showing a lively aggressiveness; spunky
There’s no misnomer here, as the Feisty Piranhas live up to their name in the music, stage presence, and personality. A pop punk, rock, and reggae band hailing from Ventura County, California, The Feisty Piranhas bring a vivacious and spunky energy to the music scene, both on stage and off.
Started by father/son drummer and guitarist duo Peter Lust, Jr. and Peter Alex Lust III in 2002, the band has made quite a splash, winning numerous recognitions and awards – most recently achieving a nomination for “Showcase Artist of the Year” for the 20th Annual (2010) Los Angeles Music Awards. Now, with the addition Kai Kurosawa on bass and BG Vocals, Feisty Piranhas are primed for taking their band to the next level.
This high-energy band brings a hard, loud, and fast sound to the stage, favorably compared to groups as diverse as Green Day and NOFX, to Rush and even Pink Floyd. It is no wonder, then, that the Feisty Piranhas have been invited to play at world renowned venues and open for big name acts like punk stalwarts The Misfits and Dragonforce, as well as seminal longtime rockers Blue Oyster Cult and The Tubes.
At the top of their game and ready to rock, the Feisty Piranhas are eager to spread their music to a larger audience, starting with the release of their new album # 5 in Summer of 2013 followed by a new DVD.
So, the question is… Are you ready to get Feisty?

The Feisty Piranhas are an Southern California band. The band's frontman and lead guitarist singer / songwriter Peter Alex (Feisty), was born with a 95% loss of hearing in his right ear and 50% loss of hearing in his left. This has not stopped him from creating better music that expresses his views on life and the world. The band's second member is Peter (POPS). Peter has been a drummer since his early teens and creates the driving rhythm that pushes The Feisty Piranhas to the next level of music
The band's mix of Reggae-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.
