BIO


THE CAVA OF PUNK REGGAE BANDS

Jaya the Cat will take you out on a night out,and things will for sure get weird.

You will dance, laugh, and sing along at the top of your lungs even if you really can’t sing. You will find yourself tapping your foot and nodding your head although you’re “not really into reggae, I’m a metal guy”. You will be happier than you thought you could be *. You will end up in places you didn’t even know existed. And somehow you’ll make it home safely with your keys, phone and wallet intact. Jaya the Cat will leave glitter confetti on your bedroom floor and take you out for breakfast. Or lunch, because, you know, breakfast will definitely be too early for anyone here.

Originating in Boston, Jaya the Cat promptly relocated to Amsterdam, and with a crew of diverse and international musicians continue perfecting the art of making the most amazing musical cocktail possible to get you through this night and into the next one, with equal parts reggae, punk, and ska, a splash of electronics and a sprig of dub with a shot of whiskey on the side. In between a relentless touring schedule through clubs and festivals across Europe and beyond, that is downright confusing they keep up considering what they get up to, they’ve recently spent a month in Berlin recording their fifth studio full length album set to be released in November 2017. “A Good Day For The Damned” continues the path the band has put itself on with their previous releases. Winding down city streets and across moonlit beaches, staggering past carnivals and cemeteries and drunken sunrises, come 15 new tales of heartbreak and joy, political confusion and existential madness but in the end, overall optimism. The right concoction to get you in the mood for what this night holds.

*Jaya the Cat will not be held liable for any implied happiness, unhappiness, drowsiness, nausea, fatalities, std’s, lost and or stolen goods, broken bones or relationships, or anything really. But we like you lots and hope you’re awesome.
