CATS IN SPACE Arrive Back With New Album 'Scarecrow'

Artist: 
 
UK AOR/Pomp Rockers CATS IN SPACE have released a music video for ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’. The song is taken from the band's forthcoming album 'Scarecrow' - the follow up to 2015's 'Too Many God', due out on August 25th, 2017 and a national tour is confirmed for September. The video can be viewed here:
 
 
With ten brand new songs, ‘Scarecrow’ will rock you into submission, but they will also bring a smile to your face. And, in this increasingly wicked world, there’s a lot to be said for that. On this follow up to their debut ‘Too Many Gods’, Cats In Space offer unashamed fun, channelling the finest riffs and melodies in musical history: but don’t think for a second that this is a novelty band. Their resolve is steely and their determination absolute. Don’t bet against them!
 
Cats In Space tour dates:
 
Sep 06: The Borderline, London
Sep 12: The Globe, Cardiff
Sep 13: The Borderline, London
Sep 15: Rock City Basement, Nottingham
Sep 16: O2 Academy 2, Birmingham
Sep 17: The Fleece, Bristol
Sep 19: The Haunt, Brighton
Sep 25: G2, Glasgow
Sep 26: O2 Academy 3, Manchester

Their exuberant 70s-inspired music may hark back to the glory days but, by delivering no-holds-barred live shows at full throttle across the country, their committed and sincere approach to blowing the roof off is finding a warm welcome. A guilty pleasure they may be, but Cats In Space are living the dream simply by willing it into existence. Fresh from wowing audiences on the Thunder tour, the band are ready, and hungry for more. With big summer dates confirmed, a slot at the huge Phil Collins Hyde Park Show is already under their belt, and an appearance at Cropredy is coming [plus big news later in the year] these Cats are ready to get everyone in a flap. And, yes, those harmonies are all done live! Cats In Space are steering well clear of the litter tray, and they’re on the launch pad, ready for ignition. Get ready for some deep impact!

CATS in SPACE, it’s like ELO and New England colliding with Queen, whilst 10CC look on from afar. I get listen to an awful lot of music, and this is the first thing this year that has gotten me genuinely excited. (Rob Evans - PowerPlay)

CATS in SPACEMr Heartache‘: This is a very stylish specimen of AOR, with keyboards that wobble and choruses that soar and voices that harmonise like E.L.O. meets REO Speedwagon round at 10CC‘s house. It’s made by people who’ve played with everyone from Asia to Ian Gillan to Mike Oldfield and The Sweet (original Sweet guitarist Andy Scott is on  board), so they clearly know what they’re doing. And what a great name! Everybody now: CATS- IN- -- SPAAAAAAACE! (TeamRock)
