Cheap Fakes have been amassing fans since 2009, mostly due to their infectious live grooves and dapper dress code. They aimed to bring a new and unique sound to Southeast Queensland audiences, touring extensively and expanding their ever-evolving discography.

They’ve taken chances with each of their major releases and 2018 will see their fourth studio album hit the streets. The first two singles off that album – ‘Touch n Go’ and ‘Sisters’ are already pricking ears and expanding smiles.
Despite the wonderful response to their studio material, there’s no doubt that Cheap Fakes shine live on stage. Whether supporting such titans as Sublime, Cody Chesnutt, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, or The Black Seeds, establishing themselves as a festival favourite from sweltering sets at Woodford Folk Festival, Big Pineapple Festival, Valley Fiesta, or Caloundra Music Festival (to name a few) or their own electrifying headline tours of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and beyond, Cheap Fakes have confidently entrenched themselves as a welcome fixture of Australia’s live music landscape.
