The Nearly Deads are looking fierce and acting frisky in their playful single Punk Rock Kitty Cat — premiering on Tinnitist.
A raucous two-minute fan favorite anthem that’s long been in the Nashville rockers’ canon, Punk Rock Kitty Cat sprints with an infectious groove as singer Theresa Jeane delivers sly double-entendres and delicious metaphors dedicated to four-legged friends of all stripes.
“Punk Rock Kitty Cat is a fun, campy homage to our punk-rock musical influences,” Jeane says. “It’s all about being your own unique self and realizing that you are purrfect just the way you are! It’s about clawing your way through the noise of the world and coming out on the other side totally confident and powerful!”
Sure to be a TikTok anthem, the lighthearted ditty purrs with the majestic utopian vision of the lion king, offering an antidote to the strife of 2020 and a bourbon-fuelled shot of cheeky fun ready to welcome the impending resurrection of the roaring 20s in a 21st-century edition.
The quartet, which also features guitarists Steven Tobi and Javier Garza Jr., along with drummer Josh Perrone, rocketed to stardom with their breakout single Never Look Back and its 10-million strong zombie-infused music video. The blistering energy of the song provided an apt soundtrack to the exhilarating catharsis of out-running the walking dead, both literally and figuratively.
A beacon of light, the band’s amalgam of powerful pop vocals and aggressive alt-rock music — combined with their love of all things geek and messages of positivity and empowerment — creates a truly unique style that’s garnering attention from media and fans around the world.
Over the past decade, The Nearly Deads have traversed the U.S. on countless occasions, including slots at Warped Tour, Summerfest and PrideFest while also hitting the road with In This Moment, Butcher Babies, Halestorm, All American Rejects, Stitched Up Heart, It Lives, It Breathes and Icon For Hire.
Buoyed by the passionate support of ZombieNation, their global legion of fans, the group will soon embark on the followup to their critically acclaimed debut album Invisible Tonight. In conjunction with the release of Punk Rock Kitty Cat, the band will launch their Patreon page, with an album-specific fundraising campaign to follow.
