The Cheats / Press

"Bringing together infectious drumbeats and guitar riffs, the band incorporates punk, rock and the fun in catchy pop songs. The Pittsburgh-based band have gained a big reputation for their beer-soaked, rip-rouring live shows. The Cheats just want to make sure you know 'you're in for a White Knuckle Ride.' Hold on tight!" 8 out of 10

“The Cheats = Ducky Boys + Electric Frankenstein + Roger Miret and the Disasters There is something about punk rock that is full of rock n’ roll tropes like Chuck Berry guitar jacked to 11, and infectious rhythms that pull you right in. The Cheats have nailed their third album with working class rock n’ roll that’s steeped in late ’70s punk and tells the stories of these five malcontents from Pittsburgh. “Better than the Rest” is a catchy rocker tune that showcases Todd Porter’s (ex-Silver Tongued Devil) guttural vocals against a backdrop of catchy yet ripping guitar work. The sweat and the dirt just pours out of the speakers with this band, and the enjoyment they get out of playing together is stamped on each track. The Cheats aren’t going down in history as innovators, but what they lack in originality they more than make up for in truly fun, hard as hell rock n’ roll. –James Orme”
