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.
