It's not often I get emails from people who were in bands such as the Dykeenies or Drive-by Argument, but that's where Brian Henderson and Colin Keenan first made a name for themselves. Both bands now cease to exist to the dismay of many, but the duo have moved on and are now focused on The Mouse That Ate The Cat. After just a couple of years together, they have headlined three Scottish tours, released two singles and reached number 5 in the Amazing Radio charts with their electro pop music.
Next up for the band is the release of their new single 'I Am The Hottest Fire' and subsequent B-side 'Ou Les Morts Est Sont Des Diuex' which, according to the band, translates to "something ridiculously pretentious and borderline embarrassing" (or something about the Gods being dead according to Google Translate). Both songs will be released as a free download on July 23rd but, if you sign up to their mailing list you can get them a week early- and I would suggest you do this because they are both awesome tracks.
The Mouse That Ate The Cat will be following this up with a short tour. All dates can be seen below:
26 - King Tut's, Glasgow
27 - The Attic, Bathgate
28 - Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh
31 - PJ Molloys, Dunfermline
