Langue disponible : anglaisCut from the same cloth as contemporaries like the Jesus Lizard, Steel Pole Bath Tub, and the Melvins, Austin's abrasive Cherubs existed for a brief window as part of the early-'90s noise rock underground. Their grinding, rhythm-driven songs came into full force on their fuzzy 1994 sophomore album, Heroin Man, as the band imploded. Twenty years later, with very little notice, a reunited Cherubs appeared from out of the ether with a new album, sounding as if no time had passed. Cherubs were formed in 1991 by guitarist Kevin Whitley, bassist/vocalist Owen McMahon, and drummer Brent Prager. Part of an active noise rock scene in Austin, Texas (Whitley had formerly played drums in the weirdo punk band Ed Hall), Cherubs were quickly signed to Trance Syndicate, the label of Butthole Surfers drummer King Coffey. The label released their 1992 debut full-length, Icing, a showcase of Cherubs' aggressive and unrelenting sound. The group released several 7" singles and had completed work on a second album when they broke up after Prager and McMahon got into a physical fight following a show. The album, Heroin Man, came out a few months later anyway, and marked a massive change in the band's sound with lead vocal duties taken over by Whitley. Two years later, there was still enough fanfare from the group's short lifespan to necessitate the release of the B-sides and rarities comp Short of Popular as well as a split 7" with Fuckemos, both released in 1996. Years passed, and the influence of Cherubs could be felt on the next generation of noisy bands. In 2013, tribute comp Everyone's Dead Before They Leave: A Tribute to the Cherubs materialized, and the next year the band announced they were reuniting. More than 20 years after its predecessor, third album 2 Ynfynyty was released by Brutal Panda Records in March 2015. The next year, the group returned with more new material, this time an EP entitled Fist in the Air. In late 2018, Cherubs signed on with Relapse Records, who would facilitate the release of their next album, 2019's tumultuous Immaculada High. ~ Fred Thomas
