Free Download: CHERRI BOMB - "Raw. Real"

Hollywood Records sent over their 2011 STARK EP last week along with an advance copy of their forthcoming album THIS IS THE END OF CONTROL, and believe me - this L.A.-based group of teenage female rockers is impressive.

Grab a copy on their official site, or through the TopSpin widget below.
