Cheerleader is Joe Haller, Chris Duran, Josh Pannepacker, Carl Bahner and Paul Impellizeri. Haller and Duran’s musical partnership was born in Duran’s parents’ basement, sparking a connection that survived the 2000s and colleges in separate states. After garnering critical attention for their self-produced and recorded three-song demo, the duo grew and began performing live. Now a five-piece based in Philadelphia, Cheerleader is a bigger, bolder version of its original incarnation. Cheerleader’s debut album is due in 2015.

In 2013, Joe Haller and Chris Duran self-produced and recorded a three-song demo in their apartment in downtown Philly under the name Cheerleader. To their surprise, the release of that three-song demo on SoundCloud led to features in NME and Nylon, some radio play, and a slew of SxSW invitations. Doors were opening quickly, but the duo was suddenly faced with the technical challenges of recreating their music live with only two members.
After a gig in New York, one of the first that Cheerleader played as a five piece, they were approached by Mark Needham, who invited them to record with him in Los Angeles. Haller and Duran were at first overwhelmed by the absurdity of the situation. “All of a sudden, we’re in New York having dinner with this guy who has mixed some of the biggest rock records of the past decade, and he’s talking to us about the lo-fi songs we recorded in our apartment at 3 am in the morning.

their newest video for the song ” Perfect Vision” is a view of a band on the road and recording in the studio with buoyant guitars and keys and perfect pop vocals to match the summer days
