NASHVILLE, TN (March 21, 2016) – Once again proving they are an indisputable American institution, CHEAP TRICK summits the Classic Rock radio chart this week with their first Big Machine Records single “When I Wake Up Tomorrow.” The song spent two weeks on the Mediabase chart prior to rising to the #1 spot ahead of the April 1 release date for their forthcoming album Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello. The feat marks the band’s first chart-topper with new label home Big Machine and the ninth format chart summit for Big Machine Label Group.

Cheap Trick’s “When I Wake Up Tomorrow” surpasses “Anywhere You Want To Go” (Santana), “Gold On The Ceiling” (The Black Keys) and “Radio Active” (Imagine Dragons), highlighting how their highly-anticipated project is both timeless and innovative.
Rolling Stone premiered the music video, heralding the track as "Moody, Bowie-esque."

Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello is Cheap Trick's seventeenth studio album and first new music in more than five years. The band has earned total record sales in excess of 20 million and more than 40 international gold and platinum certifications throughout their career. They will join label mate and Country superstar Jennifer Nettles to perform a mashup of their hits on CMT Crossroads, airing this Thursday, March 24 at 11/10pm CT.

The legendary band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month to celebrate their pioneering sound. Cheap Trick will kick off the 30-date ROCK HALL THREE FOR ALL tour of the US alongside Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts on July 14 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Michigan. Tour dates can be found at
The Rock Hall Three For All tour plays Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre on Saturday, July 16. For show and ticket information, pleae visit
