About the tour
Fiercely independent. What started with modest beginnings in a Liverpool basement has now snowballed into the band taking on 1000 capacity venues in the shape of the Liverpool O2 Academy. In rock ‘n’ roll spirit, they’ve also caused chaos at secret pop up shows in hotel rooms and carnage in local boozers along the way. They have also been chosen as support for the likes of Jamie Webster, the DMA’s and The Night Café.
With a sound that calls to mind Sea Girls as much as it does The Pigeon Detectives, the singles of The Cheap Thrills have proved a hit on airwaves both sides of the Atlantic. ‘Saint Or Sinner’, ‘Codependence’ and ‘Smile When You Sleep’ have all received support from BBC 6Music and Radio X, while gaining spins from Sirius XM and KX93.5 in the States. They have also featured in high profile Spotify playlists including ‘Hot New Bands’ and ‘The Indie List’.
‘Codependence’ proved a particular tearaway hit and following the 2018 release it was selected to soundtrack Liverpool FC’s European kit campaign, receiving 12 million streams worldwide.
The band’s music has had further high-profile syncs internationally including Channel 4, E4, Sky Uno, BT Sport, British Airways and the BBC. Most recently they were presented with the ‘Liverpool Band Of The Year Award’ in 2022 by Sound Music Group.
