Catholic Action announce new album 'Celebrated By Strangers'

Following on from the glittering praise for their stunning 2017 debut album 'In Memory Of', Catholic Action have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Celebrated By Strangers' was produced by the band's Chris McCrory and mixed by Rich Turvey, is being previewed by the new lead single 'One Of Us', and is expected to arrive on the 27th March via Modern Sky.

Speaking about their new offering, McCroy said, “‘One of Us’ was written as a direct response to what I see happening in the UK – a country ravaged by poverty and a disintegrating social fabric of increasingly isolated and intoxicated people. A neglected group spun in circles by an uncaring billionaire-owned media, (mis)led into pointing the finger at one another as opposed to those truly responsible for this situation. A depressing but common problem in 2019…sound familiar?

"This song is a comment on the aggressive divide and conquer politics that has kept this status quo of radical inequality in the UK firmly in place.

"Keep the people divided, drugged and distracted. Racism, sectarianism, vodka, sexism, PornHub, classism, Remain or Leave, heroin, Netflix…Whatever works – just don’t let them rise above their station.

"I believe people are good hearted at their core but are embittered and led astray by what they’re fed – what they’re seeing, hearing and being told. As long as we stay divided, nothing will ever change. So it’s pretty simple. If people want to shift the status quo they need to organise, come together and fight for equality – a way of life that’s positive, progressive and inclusive. We’re all human (apparently) after all."
