CURE YOUR "TERMINAL BOREDOM" WITH THE CUTE LEPERS' TRAVELING RELEASE PARTIES THIS SUMMER

Powerpunks' Blackheart Debut, 'Can't Stand Modern Music,' Climbing The Charts

The Cute Lepers are celebrating the release of their Blackheart Records debut, 'Can't Stand Modern Music,' with a series of West Coast release parties. Led by the swagger and snarl of frontman Steve E. Nix (formerly of The Briefs), the Seattle band has been winning over audiences across the U.S. and Europe with their energetic live shows and infectious blend of pop, punk, and Mod revival. Their debut has been bounding up charts across the country on the strength of their unruly single, "Terminal Boredom," jumping from #81 to #42 on the CMJ charts and reaching #1 at radio stations on both coasts.

Their healthy respect for first-wave punk and reverence for '60s rock blends, and sometimes clashes, with their 21st-Century frustration to give The Cute Lepers' debut a sound that's as much about pugnacious power chords as pop hooks. 'Can't Stand Modern Music' has garnered four-star reviews from Alternative Press, Record Collector, and VenusZine, which raves that "The Cute Lepers bring it all back, shaming any band... that thinks all it takes to be a punk is a Mohawk and an amp."

Following their slew of July release parties, the relentless band will cross the country on a 'Power Pop Tour' in August, playing 31 shows in 31 days.
