For over a decade, The Cat Empire have been known far and wide as one of the worlds greatest party bands. They play Newcastle’s Bar On The Hill on Saturday May 14.
Their colourful, genre-bending music, shipped across the globe in travellers backpacks, seems at home almost anywhere. Difficult to describe and impossible to categorise, The Cat Empire’s reputation is built upon a chaotic and fiercely uplifting live show that, in 2015, over half a million people bought tickets to see. The band have announced yet another global tour for 2016 in support of the release of their album Rising With The Sun. Front man Felix Riebl explains the new album as “an explosive world, filled with fireworks, exotic flavours and deep rhythm”. The Cat Empire writes songs that make people dance, and music that makes you feel like you have just been swept up in a big, colourful, cacophonous parade. Don’t let the parade pass you buy – grab your tiks to the Rising With The Sun Tour.
