Cats In Space - new album in November


Recommended Posts



Press release:

Esoteric Recordings and Cherry Red are absolutely delighted to announce the signing of the much loved and highly regarded CATS in SPACE.

Fantastically received by media and fans, and one of the front runners in the current UK rock scene, the band are currently recording a new studio album to be released on the Esoteric Antenna label in November 2024. There are also plans to re-release and rework the band’s back catalogue both physically and digitally.

Formed in 2015 by Greg Hart and Steevi Bacon, the band has garnered significant attention within the rock press since ‘landing.’ Drawing inspiration from ‘70s rock, their sound echoes the likes of Queen, Styx, ELO, and Boston; loud guitars, huge drums, soaring multi-layered vocal harmonies and singable choruses. Moreover, the band have a compelling live show and a plethora of “purr-fect” merchandise.

Members have performed with the likes of T’Pau, Ian Gillan, Asia, Mike Oldfield and Robin Trower. Lead vocalist Damien Edwards was Parson Nathaniel in Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds and also played Roy Orbison in Only The Lonely – The Roy Orbison Story. The band have toured with Deep Purple, Status Quo and Thunder and were guest artists to Bonnie Tyler at her sold-out London Palladium in 2019.

Greg Hart says: “Since the formation of CATS in SPACE in 2014, the long-term plan, when the time was right, was always to sign our own label and catalogue to a company that could take our music further in every direction, whilst fully embracing that we are not a heritage act but very much a going concern releasing new albums. The team at Cherry Red specialise in being a good ’old school style label’ who take pride in physical product and have fantastic business in Europe, which we badly needed to explore. The list of classic bands on the roster speaks for itself, so to join the team was a very easy decision for us to make. We are super excited to be joining the ’Cherry Red Army’!”

Do they really hate the ex-singer so they want to erase him from the previously released albums? They started this process on Diamonds.

Don't believe they fell out , he just joined The Sweet I think and with their blessing? Think doing it on Diamonds would have sufficed...end that chapter of the band and onto the next.

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM

    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
