VIA WICHITA RECORDINGS, PRE-ORDER NOW
FIRST SINGLE “SEVEN SISTERS” PREMIERE VIA STEREOGUM
UK TOUR DATES
“…the London combo still incorporates gorgeous haze into their sound, but there’s much more to this song: tumbling drums, psychedelic singsong melodies, ambient textures that shimmer through the music like prismatic waves of light.”
August 17, 2015 – London, England’s Cheatahs will release their sophomore album Mythologies on October 30th, 2015 via Wichita Recordings. “Seven Sisters,” the first single from the album and featuring guest vocals by London musicians Liv Willars and Heather Perkins, premiered this morning via Stereogum and can also now be streamed and shared via Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/cheatahs/10-seven-sisters. The song comes as an instant grat track alongside album pre-orders, which are now available through Wichita and iTunes.
The follow-up to 2014’s self-titled debut – which caught press attention from Pitchfork, VICE, Interview, The AV Club, and many others – Mythologies was recorded at various locations, including a monolithic high-rise next to MI5’s headquarters that once housed anti-terrorist units in the 1960s, and takes its name from the title of Roland Barthes’ collection of essays on semiotics and myth. Inspired in part by the Cheatahs’ gallery-based improvisational noise shows, the album follows the transitional Sunne and Murasaki EPs released earlier this year, and marks a new and ambitious chapter for the band.
Mythologies will be available on double LP, CD and digitally (WEBB440). A full tracklisting and cover artwork are below.
