Cheatahs have announced news of their second album ‘Mythologies’, due for release through Wichita Recordings on October 30th. ‘Seven Sisters’, the first track lifted from the album and featuring guest vocals by London musicians Liv Willars and Heather Perkins, can he heard below.
The follow-up to 2014’s self-titled debut, ‘Mythologies’ was recorded at various locations – including a monolithic high-rise next to MI5’s headquarters that once housed anti-terrorist units in the 60’s and takes its name from the title of Roland Barthes’ collection of essays on semiotics and myth. Inspired in part by the band’s gallery-based improvisational noise shows, the album follows the transitional ‘Sunne’ and ‘Murasaki’ EP’s released earlier this year and marks a new and ambitious chapter for the band.
