All Revved Up And Red Hot, The STRAY CATS Are Back.


All three original members of the Stray Cats–Brian Setzer (guitar, vocals), Lee Rocker (bass, vocals) and Slim Jim Phantom (drums, vocals)–are celebrating 40 years of making music by releasing their first new album in 26 years. The album will be released on May 24th by Surfdog Records. It will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital. The Trio have titled the album “40”. Their tour kicks off in Spain on June 21st, with US tour dates starting on August 3rd. All tour dates are listed below.

 Front Man Brian Setzer shared his excitement by stating, “You have to understand how unique the Stray Cats are. It’s me playing an old hollow body guitar, Slim Jim playing two or three drums, and Lee Rocker slapping a stand-up acoustic bass. I get to write new songs and then play them with my buddies. Somehow we created a new and exciting sound with this simple idea. And you know what? A lot of people agree!”

  The first instant grat track, “Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)”, is available now with a pre-order of the album. The song is also streaming on Spotify.  An exclusive indie-store edition of the album–colored vinyl, with a double-sided 24×12 poster, will arrive in record stores on. In addition, the STRAY CATS are releasing an exclusive 12 picture disc with three songs: “Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)”, “When Nothing’s Going Right”, and “Rock It Off”.
