Upcoming Release: CATL – Soon This Will All Be Gone

January 25, 2012

We last caught up with Toronto three-piece blues-rock outfit CATL in November at The Silver Dollar – which you can conveniently view in a recent episode WIRED here – and they rocked the roof off that establishment.

Had we known about the impending release of their third full-length Soon This Will All Be Gone at the time, we would’ve made sure something off it would’ve ended up in that video.

The 10-track LP, recorded at Toronto’s 6 Nassau with Jeff McMurrich and Detroit’s Ghetto Recorders with Jim Diamond, is set for co-release April 13th through catl.records and (weewerk), and lead single “Gold Tooth Shine” is a banger: some prominent electric harmonica work, some maracas for flavour and lead man CATL’s raspy growls help ensure you know exactly what genre you’re getting yourself into – check it out in the embed below.

In other news, CATL are playing a few dates around Toronto in the coming months leading up to the release, tomorrow night at The Dakota Tavern for MEANWOOD’s Trials EP Release Party, and a spot on the ten-year-strong Wavelength Festival in February.

The band also just dropped their latest video for “A Sun’s Grave” off their second LP With The Lord For Cowards You Will Find No Place – you can find it below as well.

For more info on CATL hit them up on Bandcamp, or give them some love over on Facebook.
