As 2017 rolls out, Cheap Fakes are preparing to bring great music and good vibes directly to your ears with brand new tracks in what is going to be their biggest year yet. Touch n Go is the first offering from their upcoming album, to be released on 20th May 2017.
Emerging triumphant from 2016 as Brisbane's best blend of massive soul-soaked, brass-fuelled pop, funk, and ska, Cheap Fakes are ready to keep bringing their unique and energetic music to masses of listeners and live audiences worldwide. The free-wheeling, six-headed hydra of Cheap Fakes is a ready-made party absolutely primed to provide the best of times.
Despite the excellent reception of the recorded material, Cheap Fakes have been a long-shining light on the live scene. Whether supporting such titans as Cody Chesnutt, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, or The Black Seeds, establishing themselves as a festival favourite from sweltering sets at Woodford Folk Festival, Big Pineapple Festival, Valley Fiesta, or Caloundra Music Festival (to name but a few) or their own electrifying headline tour in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and beyond, Cheap Fakes have confidently entrenched themselves as a welcome fixture of Australia’s live music landscape.
