Thursday, April 1, 2021 7:59 AM PT

Official press release:

Hailing from the literal streets of New York City, 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."

100% of the track sales and any additional donations will directly benefit Whiskers-A-GoGo, the Brooklyn non profit volunteer-run cat rescue group that got Roope-Shakir off the streets and into his forever home.

Cattera also shared this behind-the-scenes studio clip, offering a look at their creative process:
