All revved up and red hot, the Stray Cats are back. Brian Setzer (guitar, vocals), Lee Rocker (bass, vocals) and Slim Jim Phantom (drums, vocals) - original founding members of the iconic and acclaimed American rock and roll trio - are celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2019 with a new album, titled 40.  Marking their first new album in 26 years, it will be released May 24 and is available here.

Stray Cats were legends of the 50s Teddy Boy culture revival in the late 70s. They built thier following in legendary New York clubs like CBGB befoare heading to the UK. Their biggest hit was 1980's "Stray Cat Strut" , inspiring a generation of misfits to gel thier hair up and wear oversized suit jackets. No doubt, a huge influence on bands like The Living End.

The new song titles are an indication of what to expect; "Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)," "Rock It Off," "Mean Pickin' Mama," and "Cry Danger" - instantly let fans know they’re in for a non-stop rocking time, and you can check out these new tracks on YouTube now.
