CHERIE CURRIE – THE VOICE OF THE RUNAWAYS
Saturday March 25th
’70s icon and ex-Runaways singer Cherie Currie has released her latest solo project which features a bevy of rocks finest on the new album, ‘Blvds of Splendor’. The album features guest collaborations with Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins, Slash and Duff from Guns N’ Roses, as well as Juliette Lewis, Brody Dalle, The Veronicas and drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), who also produced the set. “Cherie’s voice tells it all, she is the real deal. And now more than ever that voice tells the story of where she’s been in her life. This record is about who Cherie Currie is now. We’ve waited a long time to hear this icon of Rock N’ Roll do what she does best. I’m very proud to be a part of this album by one of the best female singers of all time” said Matt.
Cherie & Matt originally began work on ‘Blvds of Splendor’ when Cherie was promoting The Runaways movie [currently streaming on Netflix], which stars Dakota Fanning as Cherie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett. “I’ve never had so much fun making a record before. We all looked at each other and went, ‘Oh my God, there’s magic happening here” Cherie said.
Expect a set of solo material and Runaways classics such as ‘Cherry Bomb’ and ‘Queens Of Noise’!
Plus support from BLUE RUIN
