Following a number of UK dates in September and October, Cheatahs are taking their blissed-out indie-rock on the road across Europe in support of their friends Metz (Sub Pop Records) for a run of shows this November.
The band recently announced the release of their next (double A-sided) single, 'Cut the Grass' / 'Kenworth' on seven-inch on the 14th October
Defined by potently raw guitars, ambient noise and soaring melodies, the two songs see the band harness their powerful live shows and transcend their first few underground releases with a matured ease. A serious sign of the strength and depth of their debut full length which will be released worldwide by Wichita Recordings in early 2014.
