WOMADelaide 2020

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Since announcing our Australian Tour we have received a barrage of communication and complaints expressing outrage from South Australia for having been ‘left off the tour’. We are impressed by your passion for the band, and your ability to come together as a state to lobby something as important as your need to dance! Thank you for making us feel so loved.

Secretly we always had something up our sleeves which we knew would answer your demand. We just couldn’t tell you about it…

Until now…

We are delighted to tell you that we will be back at WOMADelaide March 6 2020…

Melbourne Zoo Twilights 2020

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Thanks so much to those of you who joined us for hometown shows at The Forum last weekend.

All-ages shows have always been important to us, so that the next generation of Empire fans can come along and dance with their parents, including our own kids. This is why we are very happy to announce that we will be taking the show back to the Melbourne Zoo this summer, on Friday, Feb 14, 2020.

Make sure you are signed up to our Facebook Fan Group for pre-sale ticket information.

UK and Spain Tour 2020

Friday, September 27, 2019

We hope 2019 has treated you well as Summer starts to appear down here in Australia, and the days get shorter where you are. To get you through the winter ahead, the best news we can give you is that we are heading back to the UK and Spain in March 2020 to warm the dancefloor back up  with a  run of 12 shows in your beautiful cities.

There is a big hit of nostalgia for us with this tour taking us back to the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London where we used to play in the early days of the band.

Australian Tour Announce 2019

Monday, June 24, 2019

Next stop on our World Tour 2019 – Australia!

Our favourite day of the year, along with releasing new music, is always announcing an Australian Tour. It feels great to be finally bringing the songs from Stolen Diamonds home (and throwing in old favourites too of course). Expect to see us doing a lap of the country in Oct/Nov.

More shows will be added, so if you live in a state were there are no shows announced, hold tight and you will hear more soon… Also note that Brisbane and Hobart shows are all ages, as well as a couple of the festivals.

International Touring Grant Recipient Announced

Thursday, May 16, 2019

At the end of last year we announced that we had created and financed an International Touring Grant in conjunction with The Australia Council for the Arts.  A massive number of applications were received, and we convened in April to determine the one most befitting what we hoped the grant would achieve; the start of a hopefully long term overseas career for an artist/group.

Today we are very happy to announce that the recipient of this grant funding is composer, performer and cultural practitioner of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music, Jessie Lloyd

Stolen Diamonds – Out Now

Friday, February 15, 2019

Today is the day we have all been waiting for.  Stolen Diamonds is OUT NOW all over the world, on our independent label Two Shoes Records.  Massive thanks go to Jan Skubiszewski who Produced and Engineered this album (and the previous 2).  We will be hitting the road in 2019 to play these new songs (and old favs) around the world, so we hope to see you singing along somewhere out there.  If you missed the “Making of The Music Premiere”, you can watch it here to get an insight into the song writing and development, and recording process. 

Stolen Diamonds – Making of The Music & Live Q&A

Monday, February 11, 2019

Enjoy a private audience with The Cat Empire, Producer Jan Skubiszewski, and music journalist Michael Dwyer, as they distil how the songs from Stolen Diamonds came to life. The Premiere of Stolen Diamonds: The Making of the Music will provide unique personal insight into the band and their dynamics, and how musically masterful they truly are. Join a live Q&A with band members at the end of the Premiere to have your questions about the album answered.

To accommodate the global fanbase we will present two virtual Premieres of the video, so that everyone has the chance to join a Q&A with the band.

The Cat Empire Busking Competition

Friday, February 1, 2019

We have realised over time that many of our supporters are musicians in their own right.  (That’s why we recently announced our own International Touring Grant for Australian bands). Todays idea is for musos all over the world.

Last time we released an album we spent the afternoon busking around our home town of Melbourne, and we wished we could have done it in every city around the world.  That’s where you (musicians) come in…We can’t possibly get everywhere to launch Stolen Diamonds, so we are asking you to busk with our new songs wherever you are in the world on the week (Fri-Fri) starting Feb 15.
