Cheatahs Announce UK Tour For February 2014

Ahead of the release of their debut album - a self-titled behemoth of raucous guitars, breathy vocals, and soaring melodies - Cheatahs are pleased to announce an extensive run of UK headline shows in February. Starting with an NME Awards show two days after the album's release (10th Feb via Wichita Recordings), the London based band aim to assault your eyes at the same time as your ears. Full listings below.

Cheatahs' long-awaited debut album is first and foremost an exploration of the possibilities of modern guitar music. A blend of ecstatic noise, ambient drone and visceral, resounding alt-rock, combined with lyrics that touch on the complexities of relationships, nature, the city, memory, dislocation and self-identity, the self-titled record displays a giant creative leap from the lo-fi fuzz of the band's first two EPs.

But let's start from the beginning. The London based band came together when Nathan Hewitt (vox, guitar), originally from Edmonton, Canada, and James Wignall (guitar, vox), originally from Leicester, met 7 years ago while both working in a pub in Camden and bonded over a shared love of Seinfeld and hardcore punk. Despite both friends playing in various bands over the next few years, it was only in 2010 that the two decided to finally make music together. After writing a handful of songs, they asked friends Marc Raue, originally from Dresden, Germany, and Dean Reid, from San Diego, USA to join them on drums and bass respectively.
