This December will see Amsterdam-based Drunk-Reggae-Punks, Jaya The Cat team up with the independent beer company, Signature Brew for their UK Tour. The tour comes in support of Jaya The Cat's new album, 'A Good Day For The Damned' - Set for a November 17th release through Bomber Music.
Speaking on the partnership, Sam McGregor of Signature Brew said "I've been a Jaya The Cat fan for longer than I've been a beer nerd, and since we started Signature Brew, they've always been trying to get their hands on our beer. Now, we're making it official. Signature Brew is proud to be the official libation of Jaya! Make sure you check them out at some of the legendary independent venues across the UK this December."

Originating in Boston, Massachusetts in 1998, Jaya the Cat promptly relocated to Amsterdam, Netherlands after their first European tour. With a crew of diverse and international musicians, they continue perfecting the art of making that pure musical cocktail to get you through this night and on to the next - With equal parts reggae, punk, ska, a splash of electronics and a sprig of dub with a shot of whiskey on the side.
'A Good Day For The Damned' is a natural progression of Jaya The Cat's unique and upbeat sound. Winding down city streets and across moonlit beaches, staggering past carnivals and drunken sunrises, come 15 new tales of heartbreak and happiness, political confusion (and who hell isn't confused nowadays with that orange haired maniac running things), existential madness, but in the end, overall optimism.
'A Good Day For The Damned' is available to pre-order on CD, 12"vinyl and digital download: http://store.
