Palooka: She

Feels great to be in the studio again. So excited about what's happening in PALOOKAville. Can't wait to share so much with everyone soon. Stuff is sounding pretty good if we don't say so ourselves.

PALOOKA is proud to announce the release of our new digital single of Separated from Sunshine and Do You Need It. Available today @Cdbaby

To celebrate Solstice and the Holiday Season we are releasing our video for the song Separated from Sunshine. As PALOOKA moves into the next phase of doing what we do, we wanted to share a few last things from our time with the great Paul Passarelli. In the next few weeks we will be releasing a digital single of Separated From Sunshine backed with the song Do You Need It. We are very excited about what the future holds and are currently working towards creating what that future looks and sounds like. Thanks and stay tuned.



Worse for the Wear was the first song we wrote after Paul Passarelli joined us. This previously unreleased song was one of 3 we recorded with Steve Jones at Big Sound. The other 2 songs, She's Speed and Under Control ended up being released as the She's Speed single. As this chapter of the band comes to a close we wanted to share this, and maybe a few more things to come, with all of you who have followed and supported us. To that end we hope to have an exciting announcement... in the next couple weeks.

We are also very excited about working with some incredible folks to create what comes next.

Stay tuned and thank you.

"Worse For Wear"


Paul Passarelli and PALOOKA have chosen to move forward in different directions. Although our creative and musical relationship with Paul is ending our friendships, which predates his time in PALOOKA by decades in some instances, will continue and exist long after. All of us in PALOOKA cannot thank Paul enough for his collaboration and contribution to what we created together these last 4+ years.

Although Paul will be missed PALOOKA will be looking for a new singer as we move forward with writing, releasing new music and playing live again. With any change comes opportunity and we in PALOOKA look to make the most of it.

As always, we would like to thank everyone who has stood by us for your support. Stay tuned for more info and music to come.
