Drugdealer Cheerleader farewell tour
The band that formed in 2001 has decided to hit the road one last time after an 18-month hiatus.
In their career Drugdealer Cheerleader charted a single in the top 100 – I Don’t Wanna Go To School – and released the critically acclaimed album ‘Enjoy The Time You Waste’ which received glowing press reviews including a 4K stamp of approval from UK rock bible Kerrang! What the band will most be remembered for though is their high energy live shows.
Vocalist Hilda explains:“As a band we achieved some amazing highs and did stuff that hundreds of bands would kill to do and we’re super thankful for that. We just felt that before we totally called it a day we should go out one last time and play these shows. There has been constant interest from the fan base via our Facebook and MySpace pages about what was going on and since we base ourselves on a full on rock’n’roll show with cheerleaders and fun, we thought it was only right to do it one last time.”
While on hiatus the band have stayed busy with other projects. Drummer Ringo now manages up and coming UK rockers Patchwork Grace. Guitarist Jay has thrown himself into track racing and can regularly be seen on track days throwing his custom built Mini Cooper and Porsche 944 through corners at breakneck speed while Hilda has found a passion for acting having already appeared in a number of theatre productions.
The band are joined on tour by DDCL’s first ever bassist Mark Randon whose CV speaks for itself. In the late 80’s and early 90’s Randon was an integral part of London band Monterrey who supported the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses, Tesla, Faith No More and Great White at London’s legendary Marquee club. The line up is rounded out by up and coming UK guitar talent Dave Strange.
Support for the tour comes from Northern glamour-cats The Idol Dead.
