â€œCats in Space, with their love of the 70s and their superb hummable choruses are here to remind us of better, more innocent times...â€ Classic Rock magazine
CATS in SPACE have caused quite a stir since landing in 2015. With their unique sounds they will transport you back to the days of 70s Classic Rock. Think loud guitars, walls of soaring multi tracked vocal harmonies, grandiose pianos, and huge sing able choruses. Itâ€™s purr-fect!
Touring with legendary rock giants Deep Purple, Status Quo & Thunder playing UK arenas, plus Hyde Park with Phil Collins and Blondie the Cats have gained an ever-growing army of faithful fans, gaining incredible live reviews along the way.
From humble beginnings to Hammersmith Odeon, Hyde Park and the London 02 Arena is just part of the incredible journey for these Cats so far...They have released two critically acclaimed albums in â€˜Too Many Godsâ€™ (2015) and â€˜Scarecrowâ€™ (2017) which made the UK national top 30 chart, and was voted top 10 in the â€˜Planet Rock album reviewâ€™ of 2017.
Reviews worldwide were nothing short of incredible, â€œBreath takingâ€ as one reviewer put it! A storming live album, â€˜Cats Alive!â€™ (2018) was released to document the incredible live performance the band put on and cementing the band as front runners in the UK rock scene.
Now it is time for them to unleash the brand-new album in 2019, with more live shows planned for their next phase of world domination. So, may we invite you to join us on a â€˜DAYTRIP TO NARNIAâ€™.

The show was recorded at a particularly raucous night on the bandâ€™s tour with Thunder earlier this year. Guitarist Greg Hart said, â€œThis musical feast was recorded live in front of 4000 nutty folk at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena. Listen for yourself, but we think we picked the right night to record.â€
Itâ€™s been a pretty amazing year so far for Cats In Space, who follow their own headline tour with an opening slot on the Deep Purple UK arena tour. On top of that, the second album â€˜Scarecrowâ€™ has been given rave reviews across the board, both home and abroad.
Powerplay said, â€œThose melodies we loved on the debut? Those backing vocals? The sense of pop and performance? All here. All still present. All just brilliant. This is frequently breathtaking.â€
Classic Rock said, â€œVocal harmonies â€“ fabulous, luscious and pouting â€“ rule the roost in AOR-style popâ€.
HRH magazine simply concluded, â€œFeline it yet. You will be!â€
Their exuberant 70s-inspired music may hark back to the glory days but, by delivering no-holds-barred live shows at full throttle across the country, their committed and sincere approach to blowing the roof off is finding a warm welcome.
â€˜Cats Alive!â€™ captures just one fantastic night but in truth encapsulates everything that this band is about. Every live show and every single radio play brings them new fans â€“ Cats In Space have a fine line in purr-suasion!
