Cheap Girls Announce New Fall Tour Dates

Michigan power pop trio Cheap Girls have announced a run of new North American tour dates today, adding to their previously announced September shows with The Hold Steady and their European dates with Joyce Manor (all tour dates below). The band recently released their fourth full-length Famous Graves via Xtra Mile Recordings.

If you haven’t heard Cheap Girls yet, there’s an excellent chance they’re your favorite band’s favorite band.  Tapped to tour with everyone from The Gaslight Anthem to their recently completed run of dates with Against Me! and The Hold Steady, it’s apparent that Cheap Girls fans carry some serious clout. 
Famous Graves was recorded in Chicago and Grand Rapids by Rick Johnson (who recorded Cheap Girls’ first two records, 2008’s Find Me a Drink Home & 2009’s My Roaring 20’s) and Jeff Dean (The Bomb, Dead Ending, All Eyes West). Recorded over 3 months, the band self-produced the record and mixed it with the assistance of Dean.  The follow-up to their 2012 release Giant Orange, Famous Graves sees the band continuing to grow their authentic Midwestern rock that’s drawn comparisons to bands such as The Lemonheads, The Replacements, and early Smoking Popes.
Cheap Girls is Ian Graham (vocals/bass), Adam Aymor (guitar) and Ben Graham (drums).
