New album Famous Graves out 12/5/14 via Xtra Mile Recordings Worldwide
Michigan power pop trio Cheap Girls shared a new track ‘Man In Question’ off their upcoming fourth full-length Famous Graves. Featuring guest vocals from Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, the release of ‘Man In Question’ coincides perfectly with the start of Cheap Girls' tour with The Hold Steady (all tour dates below).
Famous Graves is slated for a May 12, 2014 release via Xtra Mile Recordings, and will be the label's first worldwide release. BrooklynVegan recently shared exclusive photos from the album's recording sessions and spoke with singer/bassist Ian Graham about the new record, label and what 2014 has in-store for Cheap Girls. Read the interview and check out the photos.
If you haven't heard Cheap Girls yet, there's an excellent chance they're your favourite band's favourite band. Tapped to tour with everyone from The Gaslight Anthem to their recently completed run of dates with Against Me! and their tour with The Hold Steady that begins today, it's apparent that Cheap Girls fans carry some serious clout.
Famous Graves was recorded in Chicago and Grand Rapids by Rick Johnson (who recorded Cheap Girls' first two records, 2008's Find Me a Drink Home & 2009's My Roaring 20's) and Jeff Dean (The Bomb, Dead Ending, All Eyes West). Recorded over 3 months, the band self-produced the record and mixed it with the assistance of Dean. The follow-up to their 2012 release Giant Orange, Famous Graves sees the band continuing to grow their authentic Midwestern rock that's drawn comparisons to bands such as The Lemonheads, The Replacements, and early Smoking Popes.
