Peach (also known as Peach gb) was a band from England that originally recorded between 1991 and 1994. They played metal music of a progressive style. The original line-up consisted of Simon Oakes, Rob Havis, Ben Durling and Justin Chancellor. Peach supported the band Tool on the European leg of their tours throughout 1993-1994 after the release of Undertow, and then released an album, Giving Birth to a Stone, themselves. After touring to promote their debut album, Peach recorded a second one, Volume II. It was never released due to a failure to secure a major record deal. In 1995 Oakes quit to form Geyser, but Peach attempted to continue with replacement singer Rod Sterling. However, they suffered more misfortune when Rob Havis left for fellow Tool support act Submarine (later to become Jet Boy DC). The name Peach was then dropped in favour of Stirling. Despite also losing Justin Chancellor to Tool in 1996 after their first bassist, Paul D'Amour, left, Stirling signed a deal with Mantra Records and released an album (Monster Lingo) and had four singles.
