What a year it has been! We kicked off 2016 with the launch of Rising With The Sun, which debuted Top 20 in 16 countries, including a #1 in Australia. Thank you so much for your support of this album which we are all really proud of.
In 2016 we took our Rising With The Sun show to UK, India, Canada & Australia, finishing off this month in Europe. We have seen a lot of stages and thousands upon thousands of happy faces in the crowds. It has been a busy, musical, memorable year. Big thanks go out to our tireless crew who keep the show on the road. We really honestly could not do any of this without them; we wouldn’t even make it to the airport!
To close off the year, we are happy to be able to offer you some discounted band merchandise. For yourself, or as a Christmas/other present for a friend perhaps? Orders placed during the sale period (Nov 1 to Dec 16) will receive a very rare vintage cd single (*while stock lasts), plus a free pack of Rising With The Sun postcards.

Vinyl back catalogue in a signed Rising With The Sun box $225 for all 6 albums.
Please be aware that we are at the mercy of Australia Post during this busy time of year, so you may have to wait a little longer than you usually do when ordering from us.
Again, a really massive Thank You from all of us at The Cat Empire for your support during 2016. We are incredibly grateful to have the career we have, which we credit entirely to the long-time loyalty of the people who support us. It is a pleasure to make music and create great moments for you.
We look forward to doing more of the same in 2017…starting with some spectacular outdoor shows in Jan/Feb throughout Australia:
The Cat Empire, Xavier Rudd, Harts, Ocean Alley and Sahara Beck in picturesque open-air settings
Thursday 26 January: St Davids Park Hobart TAS
Sunday 29 January: North Gardens Ballarat VIC
Saturday 4 February: Red Devil Park Byron Bay NSW
Sunday 5 February: Sandstone Point Hotel QLD
Saturday 11 February: Glenelg Beach Adelaide SA
We've been crossing paths with Xavier Rudd at festivals in Australia and internationally for many years, and we've always had a great time together. Add Sahara Beck and Harts to the mix, it should be an amazing summer. We're very excited about this one, it'll be a full and colourful stage.
Hope too see you there, and maybe at other cities around the globe if everyone loves the line-up...In the meantime have a safe and happy holiday.
From The Cat Empire
