Summer’s almost here… painfully close, really. I’m sitting by the backyard fire pit, taking in both the spring breeze and a glass of Bastille on the rocks. It’s been a busy few weeks here at Cheerleader HQ (aka our rehearsal spot), and it’s starting to look like summer is going to be a whole lot of fun.
First and foremost, we want to send a huge “THANK YOU!” to all of you who have been sending us so many thoughtful, positive reactions to our new single, “Perfect Vision.” Our friends at Neon Gold premiered the single this past Tuesday, and we’re seriously amazed by the response we’ve gotten in just these past few days. If you haven’t had a chance to hear it yet, you can stream it for free above. It will be available for worldwide download on Monday, April 28, and our UK friends can get it on vinyl on June 16th courtesy of Young & Lost / Bright Antenna.
Speaking of the UK… we’re heading across the pond in a few days for a week-long UK tour! In addition to playing at The Great Escape festival in Brighton, we’ll be sharing the stage with Alvvays and even doing a few dates with The Hold Steady. Before we take flight to London, you can catch us at Glasslands in Brooklyn on May 3rd with Computer Magic and Corbu.
Don’t worry, Philly, we haven’t forgotten about you! We’ll be doing a headlining show at Boot & Saddle on Saturday June 7th – fresh with some new tunes, more vocal harmonies, and maybe even a surprise or two. Hope to see you there!
