Cheap Heat are a punk band from Schenectady, New York.
They recently put out their first demo cassette, and it’s available in both physical and digital formats on their Bandcamp page. The intro track has a guitar riff that’s surf-ish playing over some classic punk. Then “Down the Drain” is the first track with vocals, and they’re so abrasive they border on metal vocals.
“Stasis” is a fiery hardcore track of barely contained chaos. “Bored of Life” is the only track under a minute, and it manages to pack a ton of spitting anger into a very short song. The final track, “Dropout,” finishes the album with the same furious fire as the rest of the demo.
Keep an eye out for future updates from this up-and-coming artist.
