The Cheats to film new video for "Better Than The Rest"

The Cheats to film new video for "Better Than The Rest"

Pittsburgh punk rockers, The Cheats, will be filming the live portion of their new music video for “Better Than The Rest” starting at 6:00pm on Sunday, August 12th at the 31st St. Pub in Pittsburgh, PA. The Cheats’ latest album, “Pussyfootin,” hit North American stores on July 3rd and Europe on August 3rd. This first single has already seen airplay on Sirius’ Faction as well as some local spins on WXDX and WRCT.

The video is being filmed by Sound Image Media (formerly Shadow Three Media) and will contain a story line of a couple breaking up interjected with The Cheats on the road heading to a show and the live footage from that show. Pittsburgh’s famous 31st St. Pub will be the backdrop for the live portion of the video. The rest of the script will be shot in and around the East Liberty and Lawrenceville areas.

“This is the biggest video production The Cheats have ever done,” says frontman Todd Porter. “Up until now it has only been friends and family shooting us at shows and uploading it to YouTube.”

The Cheats record label, Screaming Crow Records, plan to submit the video to MTV, Fuse and anyone else willing to take a look and possibly give it a spin.

To be a part of this event, you must be over 21 and show up at the 31st St. Pub on Sunday, August 12th at 6:00pm and scream your head off for The Cheats. For their participation, the crowd will receive free "refreshments" and pizza on the band.

The 31st St. Pub is located at the corner of Penn Ave and the 31st St. Bridge in Pittsburgh’s Strip District. Their physical address is 3101 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15201 in case you have to use your GPS. Or call (412) 391-8334.
