THE CAT EMPIRE | the cat empire return home

Lucky Australian punters are soon to get the home crowd advantage to catch The Cat Empire as they make their way around the country for the first time in a year.

It’s been a busy year for the 6 piece, who started 2006 with a surprise performance on The Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony Stage, introducing the Empire to a televised audience of 1 billion people. The music became the limited edition release CITIES –The Cat Empire Project.

Shortly after, the guys packed their bags for a World Tour across 3 continents, playing 45 dates in 12 countries – including Sold Out shows throughout Asia, USA, Canada, Europe, UK and their first Japan appearance at Summer Sonic.

Following their debut at Montreal Jazz Festival in front of 120 000 people, the media hailed the band as "THE FELINE REVELATION! ", while the New York Times said "Lock up your inner accountant. Put down your Proust and your Gramsci. The Cat Empire are coming to entertain you. Join the ever-growing throngs of fans, and enjoy yourself.”

All this lead to the announcement of a US deal with Velour records, and a Canadian Deal with Indica, where the guys have already hit the radio and video charts. News of a European deal is expected shortly.

Anyone would expect them to be exhausted after all of this, but The Cat Empire are excited to be coming back to the Australian stages. “After months away in crazy places, we want to head back to the venues we know and have had great times at in the past” said Felix. “We are doing some outdoor shows, bringing along some incredible guests, and will be playing some new material. Our support band (from the USA) is going to blow people away”.
