Cherry Glazerr is gearing up for a colossal 2017 with a new album, label, and sound that leaves behind their slacker-styled indie rock in favor of giant drums, raucous guitars, and anthemic melodies.
The band, which began in the LA bedroom of lead singer Clementine Creevy, will be releasing their new album Apocalipstick on January 20 via Secretly Canadian. Since announcing the release, the band has already unleashed two singles — the female solidarity hymn “Told You I’d Be With The Guys” and “Nurse Ratched.” The latter was delivered just in time for Halloween with a slasher-inspired video directed by Roxanne Benjamin, best known for her films Southbound and V/H/S. You can check out both tunes below.
It’s no wonder the evolved sound on Apocalipstick is so heavy and lush — this rambunctious 11-track collection was produced by Joe Chicarrelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket, and The White Stripes) and Carlos De La Garza (Bleached, M83, and Paramore). Having graduated from the jangly listlessness of their lovable first album, Haxel Princess, care of Burger Records, Apocalipstick was born from a newly powered-up group, featuring Tabor Allen on drums and multi-instrumentalist and synth whiz Sasami Ashworth.
It’s that step up that has Cherry Glazerr reaching phenomenal new heights. Catch the band at Slim’s on February 11 or on tour throughout the US early next year. You can pre-order Apocalipstick here.
