CHEERLEADER Announces US Tour with Caveman

Indie haze-pop quintet CHEERLEADER is excited to announce a brand new tour in support of their critically acclaimed debut album The Sunshine of Your Youth on Bright Antenna Records, kicking off on September 8 in Columbus, OH’s and circling around the States and wrapping up in Washington, DC on October 22. On this upcoming run supporting Caveman, Cheerleader also promises new material. “The past couple months have been spent writing new tunes,” says Joe Haller. “And some we’ll be playing live for the very first time!”

Starting off in middle school when Haller jammed with Chris Duran in his parents’ basement, they eventually moved to Philadelphia and made a splash with a self-produced three-song demo in their apartment under the name Cheerleader. With an open road ahead, they augmented the band and added multi-instrumentalist Josh Pannepacker, Carl Bahner (drums) and Paul Impellizeri (bass), recording The Sunshine of Your Youth in Los Angeles with ten-time Grammy-nominated producer Mark Needham (The Killers, Walk The Moon, Fleetwood Mac).  Following the Caveman tour, the band will finish writing and head into the studio to record the eagerly anticipated follow-up. “This is an exciting time for sure,” says Haller. “We’ve already grown so much over the past year and we can’t wait to bring these new songs to life on record!”
