"Cherry Tree" is the second single from CHUCK's final LP, 'Frankenstein Songs for the Grocery Store,' out August 18th on limited 180 gram vinyl. "Time" is a non-album b-side.

About the new album, Charles Griffin Gibson had this to say:

“My new album, Frankenstein Songs for the Grocery Store, will be my last as CHUCK. But it's been a great run! I've been making DIY music since I was in High School. If you haven't done it, I can't explain how fun it is to build songs by yourself. It's a magical thing. But I know my path is leading elsewhere, and I'm not made for the music biz. I'm 30. I'm married. I have a full-time job. I just don't have it in me anymore. So without further adieu, please enjoy the final CHUCK record. It's got songs about diet, exercise, work, love, T.V. and animals.”

Previous Press:
“Seriously, do not let this one pass you by...Love it or hate it, Chuck will make you feel something to turn your day on its head.” – GOLD FLAKE PAINT

“He tells us of the forgotten people of New York City, the dead end jobs, the bottomless hopelessness of keeping a dying relationship alive....but also the romance of a night spent on a rooftop, or sleeping on a beach, or the chase for one last drink at one last bar.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“Straddling the line between bedroom pop and high fidelity indie rock....Both gorgeous and joyously rough-around-the-edges.” - DIY MAG

“Encapsulates the feel of travel to amusement parks, train rides, boardwalk bound feelings, the feel of sand between your toes, seasonal loves, and books read to chase away any inkling of boredom.” – IMPOSE MAGAZINE

“Goofy simplicity...its nostalgia shows most in the balance between a sunny melody and little pokes that could only come from an observer with a bit of distance...” - BEDFORD & BOWERY

Track Name: Cherry Tree
Waiting for the chance to come
To piss up on a snowman
And punch him in the lungs
Feelin’ like a big fat no one
Move it along
Singing this song
Meet me by the cherry tree
I don’t wanna bite ya
But I can’t help myself
I can’t help myself (x3)
Dancin’ like you’re Mr. Fun
Hey do you wanna come over?
For a sticky bun
Schemin’ on a two mile run
Haters know I’m the one
I’m the vinaigrette step-son
Meet me by the cherry tree
I don’t wanna bite ya
But I can’t help myself
I can’t help myself (x3)
Track Name: Time [Electric]
Time is a friend
That you can depend
On stealing money
From your wallet and pants
And time is a curse
It’s a big dumb black hearse
It takes you for a ride
Then leaves you in the dirt
A baby was born
A mother she died
A fat guy he lied
And an innocent criminal tried
Teenagers in cars
Driving past bars
That stare as they pass
Ready for their first scars
Grandparents sing
Ice cream trucks ring
Summer is here
Then on to the next thing
A movie was made
A neighborhood sprayed
A college kid dreamt of being laid and paid
A lullaby blows
Through Times Square through smoke
A vacation spent
On weed and coke
A young girl looks at
The clocks on the wall
With blurry vision
Because you can’t be bald
If you never had hair
To lose at all
This second you’re here
Enjoy that is all you can
