Statues of Cats EP Released!

Statues of Cats EP Released!

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

 

Rock Band Statues of Cats Release Debut EP!

Los Angeles, California – October 8, 2013 – Rock band Statues of Cats have just released their debut EP, “Memorabilia”, on 80/20 Records. The band recorded and mixed the EP at Ultimate Rhythm Studios in Los Angeles with engineer Charlie Waymire. The mastering was done by Ernesto Homeyer at Ultimate Rhythm Studios. With a vibe similar to Kings of Leon and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Statues of Cats give you a mix of rock, funk, good grooves, and fantastic vocals! “Memorabilia” is sure to earn its place in just about anyone’s collection.

Statues of Cats recording their debut EP!

Statues of Cats consists of David Hauge (vocals/guitars), Jonney Machtig (guitars/vocals), Dan Rojas (bass/vocals), and Anthony Salazar (drums/vocals). The approach for this 5 song EP was much different than the typical recording process in this day and age. Where as a lot of music made now is piece mailed together, SOC and engineer Charlie Waymire wanted “Memorabilia” to be done organically with as much “feel” as possible. “We had everyone in the room playing together, live. We even kept the scratch vocal on one of the songs because David sang his heart out on that take. What you hear on this EP is 4 guys having fun and playing music together. The energy is contagious” says engineer Charlie Waymire.

Statues of Cats is not your run of the mill rock band. They aren’t afraid to play a heavy rock riff on one song and then follow it up with a funk tune. The band was featured on an episode of FullOnDrums.com during tracking and gave a live performance of “Valley of the Sun”. They are currently working on tour dates for the fall.

 

“Memorabilia” is available on iTunes!

 

Ultimate Rhythm Studios is a one stop shop production facility for artists and bands to collaborate, create, and record. Ultimate Rhythm Studios’ team will assist the artists through the entire creative process including recording, mixing, mastering, and video production. Our ultimate goal is to help bands and artists build a strong brand for a lasting career.

Statues of Cats Tracking Debut EP!

Statues of Cats Tracking Debut EP!

Los Angeles based rock band Statues of Cats have been burning the midnight oil working on their debut EP, “Memorabilia”, to be released on 80/20 Records September 26th.

The band consists of David Hauge (vocals/guitar/trumpet & other noises), Jonney Machtig (guitars & crazy sounds), Anthony Salazar (drums & percussion), and Dan Rojas (bass) and their sound is a modern-vintage rock explosion of fiery jams, funky-jazzy skank, and 8-bit, punk-rock sandpaper grittiness. If you think that description sounds over the top then you haven’t heard this band yet.

It has been a real pleasure working with these guys. They are young and have lots of energy but they also have an amazing amount of musical maturity. Well beyond their years. We were also able to get everyone in the room at the same time playing and capture them as a band with all the energy their live shows have. I think you’ll hear that when the EP comes out.

The band needs your help to finish the EP! Give the band some support. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
