This news comes straight from the cat's mouth, and in this case Greg Lee's. Greg tells us that Hepcat is preparing a tentative tour schedule for the months of September and October of this year! Needless to say, the key word is TENTATIVE, but exciting news nonetheless. There are no confirmed dates anywhere yet, but stay tuned to this site for updates and more information!
|HEPCAT ON THE ROAD AGAIN?|
You say you can't find any Hepcat merchandise around, well, Hepcat is working on trying to get www.merch.com to sell the band's harder-to-find items. Nothing is up now, but as usual stay tuned. If you forget to keep checking the www.merch.com site, you can always head back to this page and be informed when it is finally ready.
Hepcat's brand new album "Push 'N Shove" is finally out in stores everywhere, and needless to say if you do not own the album yet, GET IT NOW! It is a truly great album and we feel it is Hepcat's best yet (which is saying a lot as they are all incredible!). This album shows Hepcat in top form, mastering sounds varying from ska, reggae, rocksteady to soul, jazz, and doo-wop. It has been more than two years since Hepcat's last album and the wait was well worth it.
|PUSH 'N SHOVE IS FINALLY HERE!|
We have set up a little site for the album, where you can see the tracklisting, links to hear sound clips and leave your own comments about the album. You can also read several lengthier reviews, including one that we wrote. You can access the site by following the small links at the top or by clicking >>HERE<<. Please give the site a visit and be sure to leave your comments on the album.
We have been informed that Greg Lee is no longer going to be on the David Hillyard Rocksteady 7 tour of the U.S. and Canada in August. The official David Hillyard Rocksteady 7 site reports that, "Greg Lee was going to come but he cannot make it."
|GREG LEE NO LONGER ON TOUR WITH DHR7|
The HellCat and Epitaph websites no longer state that Greg Lee is on the tour as well. However, if you get a chance to catch one of the shows, it will be out of this world despite Greg Lee's absence! David Hillyard will be joined by members of The Slackers and Jamaican music legend Larry McDonald, among many others. It should be quite a treat. No further infomation on why Greg cannot make it, and you can view all of the dates for this tour by visiting the official DHR7 site.
It's not the silver screen, but if you point your browsers over to the HellCat website, you can view a fantastic littleHepcat movie from their tour to New Orleans and elsewhere a few years back. The footage captures the members in a restaurant, concert mode, backstage and other settings. The movie requires RealAudio and here are some snapshots from it.
You can view the movie by clicking >>HERE<< and scrolling down the page to the Hepcat movie.
If you missed the story above, PICK UP "PUSH 'N SHOVE," you will not be disappointed!
Before we can find a permanent spot somewhere on the site for it, once again here is Hepcat's e-mail address where anyone can get in contact with the band. The address is: firstname.lastname@example.org, so send them some messages!
