Catl. survives Southern US swing

Toronto blues bashers deluxe catl., – now stripped down to the gruesome twosome of Jamie Fleming and Sarah Kirkpatrick – have made it back from their rip-roarin' run through the red States with all their limbs and apparently most of their teeth.

They've shot some footage along the way which you'll see in their new Gotta Thing For You video set for release on June 11, just days after their "welcome home" gig at Saving Gigi (859 Bloor West) on June 8th. Some NXNE showcase gigs have also been lined up according to this press release direct from from catl. hq...

"catl. hit the road this Spring, taking their music to the Southern United States, back to where it all began. The tour proved to be a fruitful mistress for the band, full of good times and enthusiastic responses from local audiences. Man, did we meet some memorable folks! Now the band is eager to descend once again on its beloved hometown of Toronto with a handful of gigs and a new video to boot! The first glimpse will be an intimate showcase at local coffee/entertainment enclave Saving Gigi on Saturday June 8th. The severely limited capacity of the venue is guaranteed to provide an incredibly intense rock party for all! Heck yeah! Expect exciting re-workings of your fav catl. tunes and some brand new jams!

In honour of their triumphant return, and just in time for NXNE, catl. will be releasing a brand new video for ‘Gotta Thing For You’. This video will chronicle their adventures through the Deep South which found the duo playing all sorts of venues from a small juke joint in Mississippi, to running through a set at legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis. EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: June 11th - Watch For It!

 catl. will be performing twice for NXNE this year – June 15th at the Exclaim! Backyard Party during the day, followed by a showcase gig at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern that evening. Come down and experience a brand spank’n new catl. All the energy. All the drinking. More friggin’ dancing! If you didn’t catch wind of it before… After a winter-long hiatus, catl. are re-emerging. Real-life couple Jamie Fleming (catl) and Sarah Kirkpatrick have decided to continue their musical journey as a duo with Kirkpatrick playing drums – and the blisters to prove it! The result is a sexy, raw, primordial rock and roll experience. The duo has spent the winter writing a new record that they intend to record in the fall of 2013. Good to be back!"
