Cuecliché are a London based, three-piece Pop Punk band. “We met online, we’re a Grindr” a common joke shared on stage by Cuecliché but in reality the band met after Terry was inspired by an acoustic Blink 182 show at Kingston’s Banquet Records to post a musicians wanted add on Gumtree.
After many a wasted date, Terry and met Jake at a bar in London and the two instantly bonded over a mutual love for early 00’s Pop Punk bands like Blink 182, Bowling for Soup and Sum 41. The pair initially set out to write songs with a very cliché 00’s Pop Punk sound which was where the name Cuecliché came from, but they quickly realised they were making music with a very distinct sound. You can still hear those catchy Pop Punk melodies but they’re often interrupted by huge guitar solos, courtesy of Jake’s heavier influences.
Just three days after first meeting the pair met again to start writing songs and on that initial songwriting session wrote what would go on to be the title track of their debut EP, One Last Chance.
Regularly meeting to write new music Jake and Terry added Jake’s lifelong friend Jason to their lineup and Cuecliché were complete.
2016’s release of “One Last Chance” was followed with their second EP “Look at the Pictures” in 2019 both efforts were home-recorded, self-releases and have been streamed over 25,000 times combined, with the latter receiving a 5/5 score from Three Songs and Out who wrote – Cuecliché’s “Look At The Pictures” is truely a great EP. It seems they really put in the time and work, and it shows. In my opinion these guys deserve 5/5.
Cuecliché began their live careers at the world famous Fiddler’s Elbow and have played all over the UK since, including 6 self-organised mini tours of the UK. They were scheduled to support The Plain White Ts in 2020 but sadly the global pandemic saw the show cancelled. Cuecliché’s live performance is a fast paced intense affair full of audience interaction described by Even The Stars as “The energy of the set, which never takes the foot off the accelerator pedal throughout, the band’s philosophy clearly to take the crowd with them.”
The back end of 2021 Cuecliché began tracking demos for their third EP “The Cliché EP” but a global pandemic interrupted the process. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology the band worked remotely on the EP resulting in more “versions” of every song than their previews two EPs combined but resulting in Cuecliché’s best EP yet.
“The Cliché EP” will be released over four months from August as monthly singles starting with “The Last Dance” August 18th. Cuecliché will be heading out on Tour August 25th to promote the new EP playing Leicester, Liverpool, Sheffield and London.
