LOS ANGELES, Calif. (June 1, 2018) - Alternative band Cherry Pools released a California-inspired music video for their new track, "All The Way," today via Weekday Records/Sony Music.
It premiered exclusively on Alternative Press this morning. In the Dan Cicco-directed music video, the quartet plays in the Pacific Ocean, cruises down Sunset Boulevard and peeks out over Griffith Observatory while lead singer Martin Broda sings of love and lust in the City of Angels over a pulsating synth and subtle guitar riff. Watch the "All The Way" music video here or stream/purchase the track here.
On the "All The Way" music video, Broda told Alternative Press: "I always catch myself writing songs about running away with someone because I love to romanticize that ideal. Finding courage within someone to just pack your things up and get the fuck out of town is essentially the premise of this track."
Cherry Pools will make their festival debut at Spring Fling in Cleveland, OH this weekend. The band is then set to tour with I Don't Know How But They Found Me throughout the month of June followed by the 25-city "Liquor Tour" with Lydia and Jared & The Mill this summer. The "Liquor Tour" kicks off on July 25 in Albuquerque and concludes in Cherry Pools' new hometown of Los Angeles. Full tour routing is below. Tickets are available at CherryPoolsBand.com.

ABOUT CHERRY POOLS
Cherry Pools is a burgeoning indie-pop outfit helmed by vocalist Martin Broda. Awash in vintage synths, revved up by 21st century guitars and swagged out in chic thrifted threads, Cherry Pools harness harmony between distinct eras, drawing influence from Phil Collins, Michael Jackson, Justice, MGMT, Tame Impala and more. The four-piece released their debut single "Forever Young" in December and quickly followed up with "Are You In Love" just ahead of their spring tour with PVRIS.
Cherry Pools will now join I Don't Know How But They Found Me on a three-week tour in June, followed by a North American tour with Lydia in July/August ahead of their debut EP release in late 2018.

“After being friends with KISS, knowing them for years, playing on Paul’s solo record, it was my pleasure to play on this tribute CD. And also working with Bob Kulick was great fun. I thought it came out great. It ROCKS!” – Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge/ Beck, Bogert, Appice)
“I really liked the new arrangement they had and we screamed through it pretty fast. Wild combinations of players and singers, and in the end a very new twist to some KISS classics.” – Steve Lukather (Toto)
“KISS is and forever will be the most exciting band in the land!” – Kip Winger (Winger)
“What fun it is to do anything with Bob. Giving KISS some love. I tried to do Gene proud. We’re all parasites, baby!!” – Doug Pinnick (King’s X)
“I was thrilled to play on this record, especially with Mark Slaughter and Ryan Roxie, with whom I have played before. The song ‘Cold Gin’ was special for me because of one morning back in 1990 when I was awoken by a phone call from Gene Simmons inviting me to come up on stage to play a song with them that night. It was indeed a great moment for me!” – Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne)
“Such an honor to be included then and now, in this list of immensely talented musicians on this KISS tribute. Put your KISS face on and turn it up. Enjoy!!!” – Robin McAuley. ( MSG )
“Some seriously great performances by an insane bunch! Being involved on many of the assorted songs, I had the pleasure of enjoying all the different folks and the cool and varied interpretations they all were bringing to the table.” – David Glen Eisley (Giuffria/Dirty White Boy)
This year marks the 10th anniversary of legendary Alice Cooper drummer & RnR Hall of Fame Inductee Neal Smith's first “KillSmith” solo CD. To celebrate, Neal has created a new 12 song compilation CD called “Neal Smith-KillSmith Halloween,” the best of KillSmith. It has 11 previously released KillSmith songs and features one brand new song called “Strychnine.”
2018 not only marks the golden 50th anniversary of the original Alice Cooper Group, but it also marks the 10th anniversary of my “KillSmith” solo project. Since my last solo album “KillSmith & The Greenfire Empire,” I have been wanting to put together a compilation CD of my scariest and best “KillSmith” songs.
I have chosen 11 of my songs plus a brand new bonus track called "Strychnine,” it's a killer! Get your downloads or CD's today! Happy Halloween to all of my sick things around the world! Play my “KillSmith Halloween” loud and let it scare the “HELL” out of you! - Neal Smith
Neal Smith is best known worldwide for his innovative drumming and outrageous stage antics with the original Alice Cooper Group. His solid drumming is the hallmark sound behind such classic 1970's Alice Cooper hits as “School's Out,” “I'm Eighteen,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.” Neal is also a prolific songwriter, who helped pen many of the group's best known songs.
Alice Cooper was the first band to introduce theatrics to the rock and roll stage, the group has sold over 25 million records worldwide. Neal has six gold and five platinum records to his credit and has performed before millions on extensive grand world tours from the late 1970's to the present.
Smith's trademark drum style can be heard on additional albums, including the Billion Dollar Babies Band “Battle Axe,” The Plasmatics “Beyond The Valley Of 1984,” Buck Dharma “Flat Out,” Deadringer “Electrocution Of The Heart,” Bouchard, Dunaway and Smith “Back From Hell” and “BDS Live In Paris,” Cinematik “Cinematik” and “One Full Moon Away.”
And Neal's most recent critically acclaimed solo project KillSmith. Neal's KillSmith CD's “Sexual Savior,” “KillSmith Two” and “KillSmith & The Greenfire Empire,” garnered praise from fans and critics worldwide.
Chris "Klondike" Masuak is a pioneer of Australia's underground rock and roll scene, a guitar hero and a member off the Australian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Canadian-born and Australian-raised, he joined seminal Sydney band Radio Birdman as a teen, went on to Australia's hardest working act, the Hitmen, and tasted US chart success with the Screaming Tribesmen.
Masuak honed his craft in the teeming Oz pub rock scene and now divides his time between Australia and Spain.
"Bruita" is his third solo band album on Sydney label I-94 Bar Records. It's a return to his rock-pop roots and shows his songwriting smarts and soulful yet powerful guitar style.
Chris Masuak (Radio Birdman, Screaming Tribesmen, New Christs, Hitmen) has a new album recorded with his crack Spanish band, The Viveiro Wave Riders.
"Brujita" is a return to hard rock-pop roots for Masuak. Propelled by a nimble engine room and Klondike's scorching guitar, it's a rock and roll record tempered by his trademark melody lines and pop smarts. It features 12 tracks (two of them exclusive to the CD edition) and most of them are instant anthems.
From the rollicking "Viveiro Rocks" to the raucous ode to Detroit's diva, "Niagara", this is an album of high-energy rock-pop rifferama. From the stinging Birdmanesque "No Younger" (based in part on a song Chris wrote for the Birdmen back in 1996) to the Flamin'-Groovies-meet-the-Dictators swagger of "Another Lost Weekend" (a re-recorded version of a vinyl single) to the acidic reflection of "Bird Brain", it's a gem.
