Cherries On A Blacklist is a rock band currently located in Hamburg, Germany formed by Andreas (Guitar/Vocals), George (Guitar Vocals), Malapert (Drums/Vocals), and Gonzo (Bass). Three of the band members originate from Rhodes/Greece and one from Monterrey/Mexico. Gonzo replaced former bassist and vocalist Sebastian Knop in 2009.

The band recorded their first EP titled “14” in the summer of 2008. Their debut album “Lakafigo” was recorded in winter of 2010 with producer Olman Viper (Null Zwei Studios in Hamburg) who has worked with bands such as Caliban, Jupiter Jones, and Emil Bulls. In August 2011 the band founded their own label named “Grey Ham Records” and through that released their first single “Goat in the Yard” on October 14th, 2011. The single was followed by their debut album “Lakafigo” on May 4th, 2012 and their second single “Astoria Nights” on October 12th, 2012.

Their debut album was well received by the media (reviews, interviews, airplays, etc.) from all around the globe (Germany, France, U.K., Greece, Italy, Spain, Holland, India, Canada, U.S.A, Australia, etc.).

They have shared stages with bands such as Die Happy, Ohrenfeindt, Astreroid, Sturch, Sinew and Zen Zebra, and have played a few shows in Greece and Italy as well. In 2012 the band went on tour as a support act for the danish rock band D-A-D in Germany. On February 8th, 2013 Cherries On A Blacklist headlined the VIT Riviera Festival in Vellore, India.

The band is currently working on material for their second album.

Album Reviews

METAL HAMMER (DE, AU,CH) – Issue AUG 12 (Rating: 5/7)

“Right from the start the double pack consisting of “Somewhere In Between” and “Refuse” are an example of what one could assume this quartet’s sweaty live shows could be like.”

LEGACY (DE, AU,CH) – #79 Issue JUN 12 (Rating: 11/15)

“However without a doubt CHERRIES ON A BLACKLIST have created an album that with its many creative impulses alone deserves recognition, especially the high level of musicality that has been put into it.”

OXMOX Hamburgs Stadt Magazin / Heft JUN 12 (Rating: 4/5)

“Musically the “Cherries” present a debut which is lyrically and technically well rounded.” (DE) (Rating: 7/10)

“It’s more than pleasing that “CHERRIES ON A BLACKLIST” have laid down a relatively strong start with “Lakafigo”, and this without question.” (DE) (Rating: 8/10)

“In combination with rich and constantly changing vocals that all band members are responsible for in exception of bassist Daniel González, a very entertaining and above else surprising mix comes into being.”
