CHERUBS premieres 'Full Regalia' video as 'Immaculada High' full-length nears release
Austin, Texas-based cult noise trio CHERUBS are pleased to unveil their "Full Regalia" video via Alternative Press. The tune comes by way of the band's impending new full-length, Immaculada High, slated to drop later this month via Relapse Records.
Issues the band of the track, " This video is based on a little masterpiece made for the US Information Agency (1953-1999) in 1976, by animator Vincent Collins. It's a sad, doomy thing, but festooned with bright blinky colors... so you'll lick it without thinking. Like a military parade, ymmm."
Adds Alternative Press, " While not offering a crystal-clear political statement (or any crystal-clear visual at all), the video takes a trip through American culture through a kaleidoscope of burgers, brats, and beloved landmarks. Dripping with '60s-style influences, the band turned what was once a government-contracted cartoon into a psychedelic Dr. Seuss-esque journey through the throne of the Western world."
Set for release on July 26th via Relapse Records, Immaculada High was recorded and engineered by Erik Wofford (Explosions In The Sky, The Black Angels, My Morning Jacket) at Cacophony Studio in CHERUBS' hometown of Austin with art by Connor Claver, Dayan D'aniello, and the band's own Kevin Whitley (vocals). Immaculada High is eleven tracks of signature CHERUBS clamor with an added twist of Texas-sized, psychedelic racket. Smooth, rumbling, low-end rhythms interplay with feedback drenched, chugging guitars, relentless tone and Whitley's shrill, life-of-the-LSD-party vocals. On Immaculada High, CHERUBS loudly proclaim their title as bonafide noise rock legends who continue to forge transgressive yet remarkably accessible punk for a jaded world.

Rightfully hailed as "the noisiest pop music on the planet" by Pitchfork, Texas-based 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, the CHERUBS have now joined forces with the equally revered Relapse Records for the release of their fifth full-length, Immaculada High.
