In 2013, Joe Haller and Chris Duran self-produced and recorded a three-song demo in their apartment in downtown Philly under the name Cheerleader. To their surprise, the release of that three-song demo on SoundCloud led to features in NME and Nylon, some radio play, and a slew of SxSW invitations. Doors were opening quickly, but the duo was suddenly faced with the technical challenges of recreating their music live with only two members.
Today, the band also features Paul Impellizeri, Josh Pannepacker and Carl Bahner.
Cheerleader´s new album "Sunshine of your youth" drops May 19th, check out the title track here:
