London indie punk trio cheerbleederz are pleased to reveal the video for their new single ‘nail biters’ which is released 27th April 2022 via Alcopop! Records.
Commenting on the track and video, the band say: “This song was written in an hour, quicker than any of our other songs—it was liberating and so refreshing how it came together. It’s an energetic and exciting song for us, so having it as our second single feels right! Our DIY video came together pretty quick too—it was filmed on a phone, a neighbour lent us some lights, we bought a £15 Costco cake and some matching shirts and pom poms and Rich Mandell (ME REX) did the edit. It really complements the song and was very fun to make.”
The track is the latest to be taken from their forthcoming debut album even in jest which will be released Summer 2022 via Alcopop! Records, with further details TBA.
“We are so excited to share our debut album this year!” enthuse the band on the news. “It feels like a long time coming, as we started working on it in lockdown in 2020, writing, rehearsing, and recording in the pockets of time when we could. It further bonded us at a time where being creative and having a collective output became more important than ever. These are our favourite batch of songs yet—full of character, hope, energy, misery, introspection and rage, we wanted to write complex songs that reflected our complex selves!”
Lead single ‘cute as hell’—a fizzing anthem dedicated to those thirsty early stages of a new crush, perfectly timed for Valentine’s Day—was released in February 2022 and picked up support from Brooklyn Vegan, UPSET, GIGWISE, DORK, Noizze, The Punk Site and more.
Alongside the new single, the band are also pleased to announce a run of July 2022 UK headline tour dates with tickets on sale now (see below for listings)—further dates and album details TBA over the coming weeks.
