The Columbus garage greats' next album, "Reality Is a Grape," is coming Oct. 30.
Earlier this year, sonically confrontational garage greats Cheater Slicks announced details of their next studio LP, "Reality Is a Grape." Now it has a release date, Oct. 30, and a lead single, "Love Ordeal," streamable below in glorious digital audio. (Which is funny since the album was recorded "100 percent analog" with "no digital processing whatsoever," per Adam Smith at Columbus Discount Records.) No word yet on a release show, but the Slicks will be on stage at Ace of Cups this Wednesday, Oct. 3 with Jack of Heart, Petula Clarck and Koonda Holaa.
