“It’s a massive single that’s anthemic and vital, calling out for summer stages and skateparks.” – AFROPUNK
Equal Vision Records welcomes Baltimore, MD quartet Cherie Amour to their roster with the band’s debut single, “Burn”. Premiering on AFROPUNK, “Burn” showcases the band’s signature sound dubbed “nu-punk”, combining elements of pop-punk, R&B, and metal. Produced by Alan Day (Four Year Strong) the bouncy track focuses on reflection and learning from your past actions. The accompanying video takes a stab at the classic horror movie-trope of sadistic clowns, finding the band in a carnival of terror with some unexpected surprises. You can watch the video for “Burn” here now and find the song on all streaming services tomorrow.
Speaking on the track, vocalist Trey Miller commented:
“We actually started working on this song in the spring of 2019 and it’s really the first song that got me started on being more vulnerable and examining my flaws in my lyrics. I’ve been in situations where stress caused me to say things out of anger, things I’ve immediately regretted and sometimes was too prideful to admit were wrong. It’s cool to look back at the lyrics and see how this song was really a catalyst to my personal healing/growth process”
Composed of Trey Miller (vocals), Casey Reid (guitar), Brendan Willis (guitar) and Ronnie Sherman (drums), Cherie Amour are out to carve their own path in the alternative music scene. Tossing aside their worries of being pigeon-holed into one particular genre, they have embraced the self-proclaimed title of “nu-punk”. Taking influence from a plethora of artists such as Linkin Park, MGK, Bring Me the Horizon, Don Broco, and Dance Gavin Dance, the band expertly crafts genre-blending sounds into each track they create. “Burn” personifies an amalgamation of what fans can expect from the band in the future and highlights why this versatile act is one to keep an eye on.
