Nihilist Cheerleader has had a pretty good year. The local punk band started 2016 with a bang, releasing the very good Truth or Dare EP in January. Then, in June, the group won Upstart of the Year at the Flagpole Athens Music Awards. Its jam-packed AthFest show was one of that event's incontestable highlights.
Simply put, the young foursome is one of the most buzzed-about bands currently on the Athens scene, and with good reason: Its pitch-perfect blend of snotty and sunny, in addition to reflecting the group's excellent moniker, makes for an endlessly exciting live show.
With a debut full-length reportedly in the works, Nihilist Cheerleader recently stopped by Taylor Chicoine's Pity Party Social Club to perform a brand new tune, the jagged "Fine."
