Artist to Watch//Cheerleader

With summer right around the corner, it is only suiting to that we are on the look out for bands that are worthy of making it to our summer play list and we may have found one that will make the cut. Five-piece band, Cheerleader, is an upbeat summery pop band out of Philadelphia. The band consists of Joe Haller, Chris Duran, Josh Pannepacker, Carl Bahner and Paul Impellizeri. Haller and Duran started the band in their parents basement and after college were joined by the rest of the guys. Since then, they have plans to release their debut LP, which is titled after their latest released song The Sunshine of Your Youth (you can listen to below).

Keep your eye out for Cheerleader. The band is currently on tour with The Wombats and are playing festivals including Firefly Music Festival in Delaware. And make sure to grab their debut LP, The Sunshine of Your Youth, on May 19th. Below is the band’s up coming tour dates.
