First single 'Poke The Witch' out April 15.

From the band:


Yes, we are super excited to announce that our new single ‘POKE THE WITCH’ is coming to you this April 15th.

Despite its crazy title, ‘POKE THE WITCH’ is an uplifting song that reflects on events over the past two years, and also sees the band in ‘classic CAT form’ with their trademark sound firmly in place.

A video will accompany the release, which is the first from the band's new epic, deluxe double album ‘KICKSTART THE SUN’ and is set to be released in the Summer.

The single will be available in 7” RED MARBLE VINYL and all pre-orders come with a FREE promotional CD single.

*** PRE-ORDERS - 14th MARCH 9.00am GMT over on the WebStore ***

Let's hope half of it ain't covers. Lol

I'm OK with half covers.
Half 'reimagining' their old songs would be an issue though...

It's not their best song ever, but it grows on you the more and more you play it. The new album is on top of my most looking forward to discs this year. I know the boys won't let us down.

Last album took me a long time to get into, and when i did I loved it as usual.
I liked this song straight away though

album artwork...its released on July 29th..






Available in limited edition 'DIABLO RED' marble double vinyl & 'HERO YELLOW' marble double vinyl, both versions come with a full colour booklet inside a stunning gatefold sleeve featuring some incredible artwork once again by Andy Kitson. There will also be a limited 2000 only edition DOUBLE DELUXE CD which has a bonus disc with 10 extra tracks! Plus a standard single CD. Plus as always, a whole host of 'Kickstart the Sun' WebStore goodies and limited editions will be available too.

Also available nationwide in HMV, Amazon and all good retail outlets it adds up to being the band’s biggest release yet, by far...

Recorded partly at the legendary RAK studios in London, the album features some amazing special guests including legendary 'Elton John/Walker Brothers' Pedal Steel player B.J.Cole, real strings performed in Australia by Ian Cooper, a whole brass section played by Jack Birchwood and guest vocals courtesy of Julie 'The Duchess' Maguire, Emily Lynne and Lara Smiles and of course '7th Cat' Mick Wilson. It all helped achieve what the band described as "A cinematic production bigger than anything we have attempted before, and took nine months to complete".

“It is a real ‘musical chocolate box’ featuring all the things that we are now known for… It may well be the most expensive album we will ever make but we are confident everyone will fully appreciate its majesty. ‘Kickstart’ encapsulates everything that is CATS in SPACE and much more … we are all super proud of it. - Greg Hart, May 2022”

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
