Planet P Project is a science-fiction themed, progressive rock/new wave[1][unreliable source?] band. It is run as a side venture by frontman Tony Carey for his more experimental music, alongside German producer Peter Hauke. The band has released six albums: Planet P (1983), Pink World (1984), Go Out Dancing, Part I (1931) (2005), Go Out Dancing, Part II (Levittown) (2008), Go Out Dancing, Part III (Out in the Rain) (2009) and Steeltown (2013). Music videos for singles from the first albums received moderate airplay on MTV, when originally released. Pink World was originally a two-record set, released on bright-pink-colored vinyl.

Planet P's most well known singles were "Why Me?" (a sweeping, energetic romp about outer space and isolation), and the downbeat "Static". Go Out Dancing, Part I (1931) is the first of the trilogy, with part two titled Go Out Dancing, Part II (Levittown) and part three as Go Out Dancing, Part III (Out in the Rain).

The band's name was inspired from the fictional "Planet P" in Robert A. Heinlein's book Starship Troopers.
