Cheatahs are a British shoegaze band formed in London, England in 2009.


Three of the four members of Cheatahs hailed from different countries: vocalist Nathan Hewitt from Edmonton, Canada; bassist Dean Reid from San Diego, California; and drummer Mark Raue from Dresden, Germany.[1]

Hewitt and Wignall first met in 2006, recruiting friends Reid and Raue a few years later.

Their first release, the "Warrior" single, was issued in 2009, followed by the Coare and Sans EPs. The latter two were compiled as Extended Plays in 2013.

The band released their eponymous debut full-length album on Wichita Recordings in early 2014, supported by tours of the United States and Europe.[2]

Their fourth EP, Sunne, was released on February 23, 2015. On March 31, 2015 they announced its follow-up, 紫 (Murasaki), inspired by Japanese novelist Murasaki Shikibu, and in particular, her novel The Tale of Genji.[3]
