Adelaides jangiest lo-fi two-piece THE AMCATS (left of picture), return with their new double A-side single “Peggy Sue / Rain Rain Rain”, to be released in Australia & NZ on limited 7” vinyl and download late 2011 through SMASHED RECORDS.

This latest effort was recorded in New York City at THE SEASIDE LOUNGE with acclaimed producer Phil Palazzolo (Neko Case, The New Pornographers, Lightspeed Champion), recorded straight to tape on a frosty winters day.

The tracks were also mastered in London by Graeme Durham at THE EXCHANGE MASTERING STUDIOS, whose repertoire includes Grace Jones, Bob Marley, Bjork, Freddie Mercury, Ladyhawke, Oasis, and Nick Cave just to name a few.

The accompanying videoclip for this track has recently been featured as RAGE’s “Indie of the Week”, shown Australia-wide on ABCTV.

The last couple of years have seen them pick up national (JJJ, RTR, FBi, 3D) & international airplay (France, Portugal, Greece, Spain, USA), release a string of sold out 7” records, support the likes of Die! Die! Die! (NZ) and The Bellrays (US), and their song ‘Down Below’ was also recently featured in the making-of MIKE JUDGE’S cult favourite film EXTRACT released worldwide.

They recently recorded and showcased at CMJ 2011 held in New York City and upon their return will be playing at the Kangaroo Island Surf Music Festival in December as well as supporting Japanese rock gods GUITAR WOLF.

Enjoy! <3
