World premiere for Leadfinger's new single "Cheer Squad"
Here’s the exclusive debut of “Cheer Squad”, a non-album digital-only single and taster on Conquest of Noise for Leadfinger’s forthcoming album “Friday Night Heroes”.
“Cheer Squad”is a high-energy bolt from the zeitgeist...it's a song about social media and not fitting in with the crowd, with an attitude that harks back to the ‘70s punk era. “Cheer Squad” is backed up by “The Man I Used to Be”, from the upcoming album. Buy and download the single over the next month and you’ll also get an amazing non-album bonus track called Three Brothers. Three great songs for $A4 and they’re all available here.
Leadfinger will play "Cheer Squad" this Friday night at an I-94 Bar show at Sydney's Marrickville Bowling Club with special guests Simon Chainsaw (with an all-star band of ex-New Christs, Hell Crab City and Filth members) and the garage groove of The Escapes.
“Cheer Squad” was recorded in mid 2015 when Leadfinger spent a few weeks in Linear Recording Studio in Leichhardt, Sydney, recording the new album that will be out later this year on the Conquest of Noise Records.
Leadfinger split their time between Sydney and Wollongong, Australia, and play their own style of ’70s rock with nods to a wide range of influences that stretches from The Byrds to The Replacements, The Saints and the MC5. They've been around since 2007 and are led by guitar slinger/singer-songwriter and indie rock icon, Scottish-born Stewart Cunningham (Proton Energy Pills, Asteroid B-612, Brother Brick, Challenger-7 and The Yes-Men.)
