MUSIC NEWS: cheerbleederz Announce Debut Album Details & Release New Single ‘cute as hell’
Indie-punk trio cheerbleederz have announced their debut album even in jest is set for release in Summer 2022.
Speaking about the announcement, the band says: “We are so excited to share our debut album this year! 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!”
Alongside the album announcement, their new single cute as hell has been released and is the first new material since their 2020 single sometimes i cry at work. “It was hard to choose a first single, but releasing ‘cute as hell’ on Valentine’s Day felt right,” explain the band. “It’s an anti-commercial ode to fancying somebody and having no idea what’s going on in their head. It’s also about how scary love is, because you have to give up control and surrender yourself to this tidal wave of impulsive emotion. When we were working on the album, ‘cute as hell’ was literally the last song we wrote; the lyrics are playfully ironic and also have a constant kind of manic energy that definitely stems from the deep, restless depths of the pandemic.”
