London, England – Alt Rock / Metal band We Are The Catalyst have today announced a string of dates for late April and early May including Chinas biggest music festival “Strawberry” which takes place in Shanghai on May 3rd 2015.
The band are currently enjoying global success with their current single, a rock / metal cover of “Don’t You Worry Child”, which was released through the Rock For The Children campaign in order to raise funds for The Fostering Network.
Kenny Boufadene, guitarist and co vocalist for We Are The Catalyst said “We are genuinely excited about getting to play in China. We had originally been asked to attend the SOTX Expo, China’s equivalent to SXSW, but I guess someone in the right department really loved what they heard from us and asked us to play a number of extra shows including their biggest music festival in Shanghai”
Cat Fey added “These are the kind of shows every band dreams of. Playing to a crowd of 100,000 anywhere is amazing, but playing to those numbers in a place like China, well that’s just incredible”
A spokesman for the band also told us that “The band are picking up real worldwide support from all over. They’ve had a load of celebrities supporting the Rock For The Children campaign, but the video itself is picking up plays from the usual music channels around the world, but this time around, we’ve found the band being added to store and video jukeboxes all over, especially in the US & UK, plus We Are The Catalyst have even been added to over 150 airlines in flight entertainment systems”
The band are currently putting together a list of tour dates for the US to follow their Chinese shows and plans for a UK and European run are now also being explored.
