    Hot chicks in a band alert! Hollywood Records officially announced that it has signed all-girl rock group Cherri Bomb, one of the most buzzing up-and-coming bands to storm outta Los Angeles. Cherri Bomb!? Let's hope The Runaways don't get all bothered about the band name, since it's an obvious nod The Runaways biggest hit. While Cherri Bomb are less aggro than The Runaways, they are just as cute and talented.

    The group - Julia Pierce (vocals/guitar), Nia Lovelis (drums/vocals), Miranda Miller (guitar/keyboards/ vocals) and Rena Lovelis (bass/vocals) – have begun recording their debut EP slated for release later this summer.

    "We've been working so hard for three years - intense rehearsals, lots of gigging (including opening slots with the Smashing Pumpkins, Filter, Camp Freddy, and Chelsea Girls among others) - it was blood, sweat and tears literally. Signing with Hollywood Records validated all of that," says drummer Nia Lovelis.

    Along with their own material, Cherri Bomb have been playing a few choice covers at their shows including a hard rocking rendition of the Foo Fighters' hit "The Pretender" for which they recently shot a video with director Giles Dunning (The White Stripes, Iggy Pop, Weezer, Vampire Weekend).

    Among the group's biggest supporters is Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins who invited Cherri Bomb to open on the Pumpkins' 2010 tour and invited Julia onstage to sing the band's rendition of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" with him. "It was the highlight of my life!" exclaims Julia. As well it should be, Jules.

    Are you psyched about Cherri Bomb?
