CATS IN SPACE have released a music video for ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’

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
Sep 27: The Borderline, London

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!

I am going to keep a rolling top 10 – no more as otherwise I end up with at least a top 40! So up to June (and including Cats In Space’s ‘Scarecrow’ which I have ben luckily enough to have a promo for review) here are my top 10 albums of 2017 to date:

  1. CATS IN SPACE ‘Scarecrow’
  2. NIGHT RANGER ‘Don’t Let Up’ Frontiers
  3. BIG BIG TRAIN ‘Grimspound’
  4. NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA ‘Amber Galactic’ Nuclear Blast
  5. BITERS ‘The Future Ain’t What It Used To be’ Earache Records

  9. LONELY ROBOT ‘The Big Dream’ Inside Out
  10. IT ‘We’re All In This Together’ Progressive Gears Records

I have yet to hear fully the new Styx and Cheap Trick albums which based on reviews could challenge for a top 10 spot once I have listened to them.

CATS IN SPACE release a new video for ‘Only In Vegas’

Cats In Space released one of 2015’s finest albums, a real treat for lovers of 70’s themed rock and pop from the likes of ELO, 10CC, Pilot and 90’s cult band Jellyfish.

The song ‘Only In Vegas’ is written by guitarist Greg Hart and 10cc’s Mick Wilson.

Greg Hart says: “Initially the track was a light acoustic romp that Mick Wilson and I agreed could possibly fill a gap as a bonus song, maybe perhaps as an album track. However, as in many cases in the studio, a song sometimes grows on its own and becomes something much more. Dean Howard laid down some amazing ‘Joe Walsh style’ guitar, which kinda lit the blue touch paper, and the Cats wall of sound was once again implemented!

“At the end everyone was insisting this had to be a single. Who was I to argue? After all, it hit all the 70s iconic themes that I loved as a kid. It does in my opinion benchmark the fact that us Cats like to have fun sunny songs as well as the Gothic sinister epics in the Cat repertoire.

“We all need happy tunes in our lives, and this for us is the ideal song to play on a Summers day with the roof down as you blast along the motorways pretending it’s 1976, but respecting the national speed limits at all times of course..!”
