Normally I think it’s a little strange that we as people in a society need a quirky reason to donate money to charitable causes. “Hey let me pay to run a 5k while drinking craft beer to raise money for colon health awareness”, it’s just kind of weird to me. Like bro, just write the check and send in the money so you can stay in bed on a Saturday morning. BUT this is actually a hilarious way to get people to donate to a charity and I am all for it. – Nick J
Paws up for Cattera and ‘Hunger Of The Beast’.
Weirder things have happened in the past 12 months, let’s be real. Which is why, when we learned about Cattera – a metal band made up of cats – we didn’t really flinch. Why shouldn’t this be a thing?
The ‘band’ has released its first single in ‘Hunger Of The Beast’, a charity effort to benefit a local cat rescue in Brooklyn, New York. The rescue’s name? Whiskers-A-GoGo.
Cattera is fronted by Roope-Shakir, a cat who was rescued by Whiskers-A-GoGo, who admits that having a helpful paw up in the music industry is important.
On Instagram, he shared, “I understand how important it is to have good press. I just meow all day so there’s no way you would have found out about CATTERA otherwise.”
“When you come from the streets, you’ve got a lot to say, and a lot of friends to help. Luckily I’ve got some industry connects to help me write some hard ass cat metal and spread the word.”
Check out ‘Hunger Of The Beast’ below.
The track is up on Bandcamp, and has been receiving a lot of support, as you’d expect. Cat metal. It’s the new wave.
