Not many bands can boast about tearing up festival stages overseas and opening for rock icons like Foo Fighters and Smashing Pumpkins. But, it’s no problem for Los Angeles-based outfit Cherri Bomb. Oh, and did we mention that the members are still teenagers? Formed just a few years ago, Cherri Bomb is a sassy all-girl act on the rise. By fusing their classic rock influences with a punchy and present-day sound, the band introduced their debut album, ‘This Is the End of Control,’ to the world in May. This year alone, the group has garnered more praise than ever, including being dubbed “buzzworthy” by MTV and a “band to watch” by Alternative Press. What’s next for these gritty rockers? We found out. It was on their first Warped Tour that the girls took some time to speak with Rock Edition about overcoming stereotypes, balancing school with a rock star lifestyle, and what it’s like to be living the dream at such a young age. Check it out in the video below!
