Austin, TX’s cult noise rock legends CHERUBS will kick off their US Summer Headlining Tour, including select dates with Wh*res, this Friday in Austin, TX. The band have also announced a headlining European Tour this fall with support from Cani Sciorri

A complete list of upcoming dates is available below.

Last month, CHERUBS announced a series of catalog reissues coming this August via Brutal Panda Records.The band’s comeback opus ‘2 Ynfynty’ (2014) will see its first reissue since its release almost a decade ago while the all-time noise rock classic, ‘Heroin Man’ (1994) will be reissued in its original format, after seeing a super limited, deluxe reissue via the legendary Amphetamine Reptile in 2017. The focal point is a fully remastered and remixed edition of CHERUBS debut album, ‘Icing’ (1992), complete with shiny new artwork by vocalist Kevin Whitley and available for the first time in over 30 years.

Remixed and remastered versions of ‘Icing’ tracks “Sugary” and “Half a Rat” can be heard HERE while the new remastered and remixed version of “Pink Party Dessert” can be heard via this vintage CHERUBS music video redux HERE

About ‘Icing’: 

Initially released via Butthole Surfers drummer, King Coffey’s, label Trance Syndicate, ‘Icing’ captures the band at their most primitive form while hinting at the melodic intricacies they would develop over the years. The album was originally recorded and produced by Mr. Colson (L7, Dwarves, Linkin Park) and has been completely remastered and remixed from the original source tapes by Eric Wofford (Explosions in the Sky, Young Widows, The Black Angels).

While still very much a “noise rock” album, ‘Icing’ brings together influences from Seattle’s first wave of late 80’s grunge alongside the influential “noise” scene happening in Austin throughout the 90’s. The album’s single “All Chickened Out” even received some airplay on BBC Radio 1 by John Peel…a sure sign of the prestige such ugly, aggressive and deconstructed “music” would receive over the coming decades.

This is where it all started for CHERUBS and somehow it’s still happening over three decades later.

1. Sugary 

2. All Chickened Out

Rightfully hailed as “the noisiest pop music on the planet” by Pitchfork, Austin, TX’s cult noise rock trio CHERUBS have been purveyors of sonic bedlam since their inception in 1991.

After an unforeseen return to the scene from a two-decade hiatus in 2014 with their album ‘2 Ynfynty’ (Brutal Panda), CHERUBS later joined forces with the equally revered Relapse Records for the release of their fifth long-player, ‘Immaculada High’, in 2019.

One EP and one pandemic later, CHERUBS continue to loudly proclaim their title as bonafide noise rock legends with the unique ability to forge transgressive yet remarkably accessible punk for a jaded world.
