“Juicy Socks” is Cherry Glazerr’s first release since last year’s Apocalipstick, their second album and first for Secretly Canadian. On that record, the Californian trio made their foray into guitar-heavy, psychedelic punk. The new single is heavier and certainly more beholden to ’90s alt rock (think the Breeders or Plumtree). But Clem Creevy doesn’t stray too far from her goofy Burger Record roots, maintaining a healthy dose of self-deprecation and humor in the song and accompanying visuals. plus new changes this year to the bands lineup @sasamiashworth is moving on from the band to pursue her own music. She has brought so much light and love and spark to CG and these past few years have been so full of joy. We love her to death and will miss her dearly (especially the dad jokes) but we are also crazy excited to go back to performing as a three piece for now.

Directed by Jessica Nicole Collins, the “Juicy Socks” video is all pleather, chains, and disturbing plastic masks. In it, Creevy gazes down on us, clad in fishnets and floral, until the video erupts into a neon-lit, hedonistic brawl, all taking place on a party bus.


Speaking about the video, Creevy says, “‘Juicy Socks’ is about vocalization. Using one’s voice as a strong weapon and needing to be heard in order to not feel like shit. Oh also, it’s about wanting to smash Donald Trump’s orange fuckin’ head into a brick wall!”

Los Angeles rockers Cherry Glazerr, are led by 19-year-old singer Clementine Creevy, the band signed to Secretly Canadian for the release of their latest album Apocalipstick. . Clem, a teen Queen with a headstrong resolve like her hero Patti Smith and a cartoon laugh like Muttley the dog, dreamed up Cherry Glazerr in her LA bedroom alone and is perhaps more capable of figuring a music career out than anyone who attempts this treacherous life path. And yet, she carries herself very lightly. “This one’s going to be a flop!” she jokes, here to discuss the newly lined-up trio’s second album, Apocalipstick. It’s every bit as epic, funny, life-assuring, doom-defiant and flaming fire as that title sounds. Now bolstering Clem’s vision is the loud-in-every-way-possible drummer Tabor Allen and the level-headed but bad-ass, multi-instrumentalist Sasami Ashworth who plays synths and notably French Horn (Clem is still scheming on how to incorporate that into Cherry Glazerr’s sound). The first time the new trio all jammed together minds were blown. “My world was rocked,” recalls Clem. “I’d never played with someone who was technically that good before. It made me think, Man I gotta really step my shit up!”

Now this is what a modern L.A. band should sound like. Born from one of the nation’s most saturated scenes, Cherry Glazerr manages to make you feel like getting kicked out of a Silver Lake bar, only to make your way to Echo Park for last call, then a 2am taco truck, only to accept the fate of your hangover the next day, but be ready to do it all over again while wearing the same clothes. All of the jams on the group’s latest LP, Apocalipstick, have nasty shreds and dizzying effects. “Nuclear Bomb” builds into a menacing crescendo before descending into madness, while “Only Kid On The Block” is a powerful climax for the trio.

Society would deem a prodigious girl can’t be in a progressive rock band while also being in complete control of its creative vision, business plan and social messaging. Society is wrong. Clem, a 19 year old teen Queen dreamed up Cherry Glazerr in her hometown L.A. bedroom alone and is perhaps more capable of figuring a music career out than anyone who attempts this treacherous life path.

Back in 2014, much-loved Californian imprint Burger Records released their intoxicating debut Haxel Princess and Suicide Squeeze released the Had Ten Dollaz 7”. On Apocalipstick the band worked with “rock ‘n’ roll wizard” Joe Chicarelli (White Stripes, The Shins, The Strokes) and Carlos de la Garza (Bleached, M83, Tegan and Sara). With their help and the band’s newfound self-discipline and motivation, Cherry Glazerr has evolved into a wildly complex, hugely guitar heavy, and unapologetically loud machine. Its vintage riot girl stuff via Pixies-style bittersweetness and big angular riffs.

Cherry Glazerr Share Video For 'Nuclear Bomb'

Cherry Glazerr have shared their new music video for ‘Nuclear Bomb’, a track from their forthcoming album Apocalipstick.

On the heels of a sold out run of shows in California, the band is days away from embarking on a huge tour a portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to support Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, which provides life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, prevention and treatment of STDs and sexual health education to Los Angeles County’s women, men and teens.

‘Nuclear Bomb’ follows two previously shared songs from the full-length record, ‘Nurse Ratched’ and ‘Told You I’d Be With Guys’ with the latter moving to deal with the issues of female solidarity.

Having worked with Joe Chicarrelli who is well-known for his efforts with the likes of The Strokes and The White Stripes, Cherry Glazerr have teamed up with label Secretly Canadian for the first time worked together in Hollywood’s Sunset Sound studio.

Roxanne Benjamin has been busy in the horror world of late, having made her directorial debut with a segment of this year’s anthology film “Southbound” after serving as a producer on all three “V/H/S” movies. Now she’s back with a throwback music video for Cherry Glazerr “Nurse Ratched,” The title of the song is, of course, a reference to the domineering nurse from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,”

In it, a girl wearing a red hoodie hitchhikes her way into a ride and goes on to confirm all your worst fears about people on the side of the road with their thumbs up; this leads to one of the bloodiest sequences you’re ever likely to see in a music video, especially for such a low-key song. From there, she takes the car for herself — and picks up an unsuspecting hitchhiker of her own.

Last month, LA rock group Cherry Glazerr announced that they were signing to Secretly Canadian to release their new full-length, Apocalipstick, early next year, The song originally appeared as the B-side to their 2014 single Had Ten Dollaz,” but it’s been re-recorded for the new album. Cherry Glazerr announces their new album Apocalipstick. The band’s first album was recorded at Hollywood’s iconic Sunset Sound studio with acclaimed producers Joe Chicarrelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket, The White Stripes) and Carlos De La Garza (Bleached, M83, Paramore).
