“…’KICKSTART THE SUN’ IS THE POMP ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR”Rock Candy Magazine
CATS in SPACE have caused quite a stir since landing in 2015. With their unique sound they will transport you back to the days of 70s Classic Rock when bands like Queen, Boston, Styx, ELO and Journey ruled the airwaves. Think loud guitars and huge drums, walls of soaring multi-layered vocal harmonies, grandiose pianos, and unforgettable sing-able choruses. It’s purr-fect!
A high-class pedigree of players, who have performed with the likes of T’Pau, The Sweet, Ian Gillan, Mike Oldfield, Asia, Robin Trower and Jeff Wayne will ensure a performance of the highest calibre. Touring with legendary rock giants Deep Purple, Status Quo & Thunder, playing UK arenas, as well as Hyde Park with Phil Collins and Blondie, the CATS have accumulated an ever-growing army of faithful fans, gaining exceptional live reviews along the way. From humble beginnings to performing at The Hammersmith Odeon and The London O2 Arena, shows the extent of the orbital journey for these CATS so far...
With four critically acclaimed studio albums in Too Many Gods, Scarecrow, Daytrip to Narnia and Atlantis, a live album Cats Alive!, two Christmas singles and a best-of compilation album Diamonds, CATS in SPACE have established themselves as one of the front runners in the UK rock scene, yet remain totally unique. Making the UK national charts on three occasions and gaining airplay on Radio 2 along the way.
The success of their 2019 ‘Tour of Narnia’, saw the band play Germany for the first time and the highlight in England being a date at the London Palladium as guests to the legendary Bonnie Tyler to a sold out theatre going audience of 3,000.
Despite the set-back of the pandemic, the band managed to play a UK tour to support the Atlantis album in 2021 and appear at several festivals, before a Christmas campaign rounded 2021 off in grand style with the release of their version of the classic Greg Lake hit I Believe In Father Christmas.
In 2022- 2023 the band embarks on their boldest tour yet for Kickstart the Sun. A new album already destined to become their biggest album by far. This double album features no less than fifteen songs and is being hailed as one of the “greatest albums this century” so far. An epic production that so few bands could attempt these days. Lead single and video Poke The Witch made ‘Classic Rock Magazine’ track of the week in April ‘22 with follow-up single Teenage Millionaires furthering the excitement of the new album.
With the press on their side joining the ever growing ‘Cat Army’, the band continue to impress all who see and hear them and guarantee to uphold their reputation of being one of the ‘best live bands you will see anywhere’. It is a show not to be missed. So please, strap yourselves in for a rocket ride to the Sun!
