UK rock & metal promoter Matt Seddon said of WATC and the new album..."We Are The Catalyst are a shining light in the rock and metal world right now. Its rare to find a band who can hook you and captivate you as well as this band do. By combining soaring vocal lines and catchy melodies, We Are The Catalyst have set the benchmark for modern metal bands - providing an intense and awe inspiring listening experience that will have you begging for more. Their new album Elevation is going to take the world by force!"
Open Door has already been added for rotation by a massive number of stations right around the world.
"Elevation is darker, heavier and more emotional than anything we´ve ever done before" says co founder Kenny Boufadene. "It´s been an awesome and intense year for us, touring China and playing festivals and shows in Europe, and all this after we did our very first show in March last year! In between all this we somehow found the time to write and record Elevation, and I think it affected the sound in a really good way".

It's been an incredible 18 months for WATC. In 2015 the band toured China culminating in a headline slot on the Planet Stage at the Shanghai Strawberry Festival. Following this success the band made their BloodStock debut, opened for Delain, headlined their ownUK tour and then finished the year playing another headline slot on the second stage at Planet RockStock.

"We absolutely aren't resting on the bands growth." added Cat Fey, lead singer of We Are The Catalyst. "We are already lining up dates to hit the road in support of the new album and as radio play and video play numbers grow, we can't wait to play for bigger and bigger audiences".

"Elevation" was recorded, mixed and mastered by Kenny Boufadene at Studio Meltdown in Varberg, Sweden. Artwork for the album was created by Gustavo Sazes (who has worked with bands like Amaranthe, James Labrie, Arch Enemy, Kamelot, Sonic Syndicate and many more). www.abstrata.net
The album will be available for pre order on April 15th, to coincide with the first single "Open Door".

NEW SONG PRE-RELEASED!

BIG NEWS! We are pre-releasing A NEW SONG (with a lyric video), specially written with new years eve in mind! We realized we never wrote a song specifically for a holiday, so we made it a challenge!
So we took some time of mixing the new album to write it on saturday, recorded it on sunday, mixed and mastered on monday, and release it today, Tuesday! Why can´t it always be like this eh? smile emoticon
The song is about moving on, going through hard times and trying to keep up hope. In a way it has been a lot about this years world events, but also about personal struggles for us.
It will be available on iTunes, Spotify etc. on January 15th, which is the official release date.
