Cherry Glazerr announces their new album Apocalipstick. The band’s first album for Secretly Canadian was recorded at Hollywood’s iconic Sunset Sound studio with acclaimed producers Joe Chicarrelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket, The White Stripes) and Carlos De La Garza (Bleached, M83, Paramore).
To celebrate, the band is sharing ‘Nurse Ratched’, which was written by leadsinger Clementine Creevy as she mused on the evil Nurse Ratched character in Ken Kesey’s masterpiece One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. The track’s slasher flick video is directed by Horror film director/producer Roxanne Benjamin who is know for her films Southbound and V/H/S among other work. Perfectly timed for it’s release on Halloween, watch as what appears to be an innocent albeit bizarre hitchhiking ride turns into a bloody massacre.
‘Nurse Ratched’ is the second single to be heard from the forthcoming record and follows the previously shared “Told You I’d Be With Guys”. The album’s first single dealt with issues of female solidarity and earned praise from The New York Times who notes “she finds herself stranded between the ‘ladies’ she mistakenly left behind and the guys she is wary of.” Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Times proclaimed it “the best song yet from a band poised for greatness”, while Pitchfork awarded it ‘Best New Track’ honours while calling the song “a massive step forward”.
