APRIL 1 — LISTEN
Hailing from the literal streets of NYC, CATTERA is a feline four-piece fronted by reformed street cat Roope-Shakir, fur baby of Fearless Records product manager Anna Mrzyglocki.
Today, CATTERA have released their debut single “Hunger of the Beast” via Bandcamp. Listen here.
“I knew Roope-Shakir had star power from the moment he entered my apartment,” Mrzyglocki says. “I heard his emotion-filled meows and knew he needed to be the front cat of a metal band. It sparked a passion for A&R I never knew I had. People may think CATTERA is just another ‘industry plant,’ but there’s real talent here.”
“I’m stoked to release my first track with CATTERA, as I’m a huge fan of OG animal kingdom metal bands like Hatebeak and Caninus,” Roope-Shakir purrs. “I hope I can be an inspiration to all street cats who have something to say.”
CATTERA also shared this behind-the-scenes studio clip, offering a look at their creative process.
