Backstage Pass: The Lost Song & The Rhythm

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

This week’s Backstage Pass is two clips from our early DVD release, On The Attack.

The Lost Song:

This song goes WAY WAY back, as does our friendship with the beautiful Julie O’Hara who features on this video. The Lost Song became a hit in Romania when it was used as the opening track for a super popular TV drama. The band became well known there overnight for this one song, and our shows there since have been massive (attach the pic of that massive show)

The Rhythm:

This video was filmed when we were touring with a whole troupe of people back in 200?

Live at The Zoo Brisbane

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

2003 was a big year in our career, punctuated by the release of our first record and multiple road trips up and down the east coast of Australia in a convoy of our own cars (before hire cars were even a consideration for us). The Zoo Brisbane was a regular. We stayed at the backpackers around the corner, and played multiple shows in a row (Joc at the venue was a believer) which were always hot, plagued with sound issues, packed to the rafters, wildly fun.

Listen to this huge set here.

Live at The Theatre Of Living Arts, Philadelphia

Saturday, September 9, 2017

That east coast run from NYC up in to Canada is a well traveled road for us. 2005 may have been the year we accidentally left Jumps and Felix at border control in the middle of the night wearing PJs, holding their passports and (fortunately) a phone. Something went wrong with the tour bus drivers always confusing system of leaving an aussie rules football on the drivers seat if you weren’t on the bus, and he left without them. Even if 2005 wasn’t the year that happened, it was the year we played Philadelphia Theatre of Living Arts, and here is the recording to prove it… A hot,

The Cat Intro and The Making of Sly – Backstage Pass

Friday, September 8, 2017

Released as part of this week’s Sunday Sessions Backstage Pass are The Cat Intro, and The Making of the Sly Video Clip..

Will: This is one of the early intros that we wrote for the On The Attack tour. I remember rehearsing and laughing at the lyrical descriptions of all the band members that Felix & Harry came up with. It was a great way to start the show, we certainly had a lot of fun doing it!

Memories from the “Sly” clip are somewhat vague…but run something like this: a brutally early start, perhaps somewhere in the blue mountains?,

The Cat Empire Spins Long Haul Flights

Thursday, August 17, 2017

As Australians, we get very accustomed to flying over vast oceans to get to…well, just about anywhere. And every long haul flight is made 1000 times better with some noise cancelling headphones and a great playlist to fill the hours between movies, food and chats with random strangers. Here is one for the next time you find yourself flying, or doing anything that requires a playlist to kick back with.

The Cat Empire LIVE Recording – Canberra Stage 88

Thursday, August 17, 2017

This week’s Sunday Session is the recording of our show at Stage 88 in Canberra. As a bonus we have uploaded the video of Two Shoes and The Chariot from this show to YouTube – watch the full clip for Two Shoes here:

In 2006 we undertook a big Australian tour of outdoor stages. It was a huge undertaking, the biggest tour we had done at the time under our own steam. Stage 88 in Canberra was uniquely special because it was a great stage nestled in a garden, on a hot Sunday afternoon.
