“CHEECH has been shredding with Clayton guitar picks for years. Clayton’s Acetal rounded triangle guitar picks fit perfectly in hand for fast licks, chugging rhythms, even heavy bass playing. Claytons stand up to CHEECH’s constant string abuse.” – Joshua Bottomley, guitarist of CHEECH

At the bottom of Boston Harbor amidst the toxic medical refuse and rotting corpses left to decay in the depths, a creature stirs from its slumber. CHEECH, the best-kept secret in Beantown has returned to lay waste to society’s standards.

CHEECH’s debut LP A Day Late and A Dollar Short (2003) was a punk band with a very large chip on its shoulder. Subsequent releases, Keep Your Pimp Hand Strong (2004) and Ante Up (2008), saw the group stumbling further into heavy metal and rock ‘n’ roll territories while still clinging to their disheveled roots. Newest release, Beast From The East (2013) is CHEECH fully immersed in all of its influences, bridging the gap between old school hardcore, d-beat infused thrash metal, and even classic rock.

While many bands in similar genres prefer to don permanent frowns, CHEECH continues to take a more sideways trajectory, covering serious topics as economic upheaval, revenge fantasies, and paranoia with a cynical slang-laden sarcasm rarely seen in such circles.

Don’t let the sense of humor fool you, CHEECH’s Molotov medley is ugly and explosive. Underground aggressive music fans who prefer to dive deep beneath the glossy surface of today’s primped up poster boys, Beast From The East is here to drag you under.
