The Cat Empire is a big name in Australia and they are on their way up in the USA. Next year will see the first stateside release of an album. A teaser EP is currently been distributed and it's ... GREAT. The sextet recorded it in Havana, Cuba, about one year ago. Pop it in your player and the sun will be shining in your room. The Cat Empire sounds like an updated version of Madness and there is a touch of The Clash during their Sandinista! days.
