The band has a number of successful releases behind them. In 2005 they released their first EP, ‘Victorialand’. In 2006 they went on to record the slightly more ambitious ‘Sweet Drunk Everyone’. This was released at the time through Unlabel and Win Win Win records. In 2007 they were approached by renowned label Big Scary Monsters to release a split album with This Town Needs Guns. The release of the split album coincided with an extensive tour of the country as well as a Radio 1 session recorded at Maida Vale studios for Huw Stephens. The band also went on to perform at Glastonbury festival that year. They have since had a number of features on radio stations across the country including X-FM, BBC 6music and Radio 1, in addition to coverage in NME and Rocksound.
More touring followed, including supports with bands 65daysofstatic, Youth Movies, Red Jetson, iLiKETRAiNS, Errors and Tellison.
In April 2008 Cats and Cats and Cats set out for Europe, where they toured France, Luxembourg, Denmark, Germany and Holland. The band were greeted with many positive reviews and hope to return soon.
In May 2008 they were invited to support Forward Russia on a number of their England tour dates including Liverpool and the bands hometown show in Leeds.
May 2010 saw the release of 'If I'd Had An Atlas' through Function Records. The album features 11 songs produced by Tom Woodehead. Violinist Eve Morrison also announced that the tour supporting the new album would be her last with Cats, and they will be looking for a replacement.
