Introducing Cherub, an alternative-rock band with an unique electro-indie curve on their sound.
On July 28th, in New York, the Nashville-bred pair, Cherub, consisting of producers Jason Huber and Jordan Kelley, had announced the release of their title track “Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence” in support of their sophomore album to drop this fall (via Columbia Records). The two met back in college whilst attending Middle Tennessee State and studying music production. During that time, they decided to join forces to build a fan base who were equally interested in their synth-heavy pop, funk and 80’s post-modern disco tunes.
Cherub’s sophomore project Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence is a highly anticipated piece of work, following their last released album and first LP Year of the Caprese. The boys have been able to reach The Hype Machine charts and the Billboard’s Rock Airplay and Alternative Songs charts, bringing their brand to the forefront of listeners’ minds. Even a few of their tracks have found themselves amongst Spotify’s Viral Top 50 playlists. Their most popular song at the moment is “Strip To This” ft. FortBowie, ranking in at the No. 1 spot on the Viral Charts! Their other hit was their chart topper “Doses and Mimosas.” These are already huge successes to begin with for a band that got their start in 2011!
For this new project, the team noted that “Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence is an album that has been over two years in the making;” the band continues, “we did what makes sense to us…use the sounds and styles that we’ve grown up with, and find a way to make them our own.”
They certainly have come a long way from their beginnings as hard core metal-enthusiasts to the innovative, progressive and talented electronic funk DJ’s that they are now.
In this particular single, “Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence” we feel that heir of regality in the funk ring intertwined between the bass and falsettos. It’s a multitude of genres in one. With this track, we get a better representation of the versatility of this band who will remind you of the energy and sound of Daft Punk blended with the edge and vocals of artists like The Neighbourhood.
This weird, yet cool charisma developed by the guitar riffs and synth-progressions bring you back to the good ol’ days of electronic music back in the 80’s. The strength of confidence professed in their singing carries the song throughout the peculiar and distinctive record.
You can now listen to the song below!
In addition, the rock duo will be performing this Friday at 4:45 PM on the Bud Lights Stage in the city of Chicago, Illinois at renown Lollapalooza Festival, so if you’re at the event, be sure to check these guys out! These guys went online viral almost instantly a while back, and when they gave their first tour, the crowd was immediately enchanted by their wild entertainment, thus leading them to many more successful and sold-out shows across the country! Cherub has even had the honor of performing at huge festivals such as Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Austin City Limits, Governor’s Ball, and many more.
The band stated with enthusiasm that “we’re back on the road this fall with our live band, playing songs from our entire catalogue… It’s super exciting to get to debut the new music out in front of real live people, after being locked away in a dark studio for so long!”
So as they said, you can now catch these guys on tour this fall for their Bleed Gold Tour; you can see their tour dates and purchase tickets here!
