From the official press release: 


WE ARE THE CATALYST ANNOUNCE TOUR OF CHINA

SWEDENS FASTEST RISING ROCK BAND TO PLAY TO 100,000 AT SHANGHAIS BIGGEST MUSIC FESTIVAL.

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.

The bands current single can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Egd-qLfGABw and it’s also PlayStation Vidzones current “Must See Video”.


The single “Don’t You Worry Child” can be purchased at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/dont-you-worry-child-single/id979722499  and you can also pre-order the bands new album, due for global release at the end of this month, at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/monuments/id977892380

INTERNATIONAL CELEBRITIES RALLY BEHIND “INCREDIBLE” CHARITY ROCK RELEASE

SUPERSTARS AS DIVERSE AS JERRY SPRINGER TO ADAM PERRY (BLOODHOUND GANG) GIVE THEIR SUPPORT TO “CHANGE CHILDRENS LIVES” THROUGH ROCK.

London, England – Celebrities from all around the world and from all branches of the arts are rallying behind what international talk show host Jerry Springer has described as an “Incredible (rock) video” aimed at raising funds for fostering charities all over the world.

The video, a rock / metal cover of “Don’t You Worry Child”, released by Swedish band We Are The Catalyst goes live today on YouTube and goes on general release globally next week with all the profits going to The Fostering Network. The video is a no holds barred look at the darker side of a broken home and the horrific struggle many children face on a daily basis.



Ruthie Henshall, one of the stars of the West End hit show Billy Elliott summed up what many of the celebrities are saying about the video when she said “Music is obviously something that is very close to my heart and when I see music specifically being released to raise money and awareness for such a great cause as Fostering, then I just have to give my support.

I would urge music fans everywhere to check out the wonderful video for Don't You Worry Child by We Are The Catalyst and then please download the track so that with the help of The Fostering Network, we can all make a real difference to so many at risk children”.

Tony Round, Head of Fundraising for The Fostering Network commented “The children who come into care have all too often experienced neglect and abuse, or witnessed domestic violence or substance misuse. The Fostering Network has worked hard for the past 40 years to ensure that these children can experience love, support and stability in a foster family. We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity receiving funds raised through Rock for the Children, and thank We Are The Catalyst for shining a huge spotlight on foster care and the amazing work that foster carers do around the world through the release of ‘Don’t You Worry Child’.”

With additional celebrities also pledging their support for the campaign “Rock for the Children” ranging from Hayley Atwell, one of the stars of the blockbuster Captain America movies, right through to Michael Van Schoick who plays “Epic Strut Dave”, in the current Money Supermarket TV adverts in the UK, the project clearly has not shortage of well known supporters.





“A lot of people are also supporting Rock For The Children, by sending us Index Finger Smiley Selfies” said Kenny Boufadene, guitarist and co vocalist for We Are The Catalyst. “They are simple smiley faces drawn on the index finger, but it signifies how a simple #OneClick (downloading the single) can literally change a childs life forever”
