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!

DOWLING POOLE UK shows in Sep

Our only three shows of 2017 are getting nearer….

dps

Well there’s no point in avoiding it, we’ve been quiet for a couple of months. Jon and Willie have been either recording, or across the world with our favourite man of medicine, Dr Hook, (his name is Dennis Locorriere and ye shall praise him) and Givvi has been back in her threadbare, mildew infested, concrete bedsit, crying her eyes out and wondering quite where it all went so wrong….

So there’s a new acoustic video for you to gasp at, up on Facebook….

And here are the ticket links to our only three shows of 2017. Cheaper if you get them in advance…..

September 7th – Worcester, The Marrs Bar (ticket link here)
September 8th – Bedford, Esquires@Holy Moly’s (ticket link here)
September 9th – London, The Borderline (ticket link here)

Get them now to avoid any disappointment….mostly ours of course.
Our happiness is balanced precariously in your hands.
And we’ll pray to all that is not in the least bit holy, just to see you there

Willie, Jon and Givvi

PictureHouse to release summer hit “Sunburst” this July

PictureHouse have announced plans to release their smash hit single “Sunburst” internationally on their PHRC label in the summer of 2017.

For two years in a row this summer song was the most played song on Irish radio, used in a national TV advertising campaign for a major retailer and was used in the soundtrack to a film. It propelled the band to stardom and brought them on tours with the likes of The Corrs, Meatloaf, The Divine Comedy, Mel C from Spice Girls, Texas, Ronan Keating, their own tours and festivals which saw them headline Dublin’s Big Day Out in Marley Park to 35,000 people.

A dispute with their then record company ultimately contributed to the band breaking up, meaning the track never got released properly in the UK. They reformed, releasing 2014’s “Evolution” (which spawned the hit single “Rules of Science” which was playlisted on BBC Radio 2 as well as countless other stations across Europe.)

PictureHouse have now digitally remastered a number of their songs in a package that’s not meant to be a greatest hits – but instead be a “best bits” including some previously unreleased material. The record is called “How Can I Explain How This Came To Be?” and is due for release in August 2017. More details to follow.

The band hope to confirm a tour in Winter 2017.

FIVE GRAND STEREO new video

Dear all, we’re really pleased to share a brand new live video with you: David Bowie, which has just gone up on Youtube. It’s from the sessions we recorded at The Fish Factory in London a while ago. (Thanks to John Lynch and Ian Martin for putting it together).

We released this song in December 2015, just before David Bowie’s death. It’s since become an accidental tribute of sorts, but that wasn’t the intention. The song came about when Chris had a daydream that David Bowie, rather than David Cameron, was the Prime Minister.
