Biography

Most bands cannot claim to have begun the road to rock ‘n’ roll notoriety in the famous halls of Oxford University, nor could they point to an attempted government coup as the inspiration for their moniker, but then Cato Street Conspiracy are not most bands.

The band pride themselves on providing intelligent lyricism to underpin their high octane, riff-heavy rock ‘n’ roll. The subject matter of the band’s work varies from ensuing environmental disaster (2030) and street violence (Danger!), to dying romances (The Transparency Of Glass) and people’s destructive relationship with alcohol (The Ghost Of Simon Taylor), but the message never, ever gets in the way of the riff or the melody.

Having supported the likes of Fighting With Wire, played the Nokia tent at Reading Festival, and received airplay from the BBC and Totalrock, Cato Street Conspiracy are a band on the rise. Their debut EP “The Ghost Of Simon Taylor” received rave reviews when it was released in 2006 and subsequent full length “Monster Attack!” was equally well received in 2007.

The band are now back with the first single to be lifted from album number two. “Promises, Promises…” is a punk rock explosion of melody and harmony melded together into three of the finest minutes of pop you’ll hear in 2009. It is the sound of a band truly on their game.

“Promises, Promises…” is released via all good digital retailers on June 15th 2009.
