-- Since their inception in 2008, Cathercist has been making strides along the Gulf Coast with hopes of spreading their infectious sound. The band has taken cues from the last three decades of metal and alternative rock, and revamped it for a modern audience. From stunning harmonies and searing guitar solos, to their unbelievable rhythms, Cathercist's music has successfully allowed them to compose a style they can call their own. This solid group consists of vocalist Zack Sawyer, guitarists Taylor Roberts and Richard Gormley, bassist Mikhail Cintgran, and drummer Matt Marciana. Cathercist has been featured on the Rockstar Uproar Festival, Bayfest, EMG tour, Crawfish Festival, Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour, and more; and has opened for 10 Years, All That Remains, Art of Dying, Drowning Pool, Halestorm, KoRn, Seether, Sevendust, Three Days Grace, Chevelle, Cavo, Bullet for my Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold, and many more. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on a 2nd album that will be released in early 2013; presales that include an exclusive merchandise package are currently being taken at http://cathercist.bigcartel.com/
. Cathercist is endorsed by Schecter Guitars, Peavey, and DiMarzio.
“When looking for a management/booking agent, we wanted to someone we knew would care about us and our needs. We also wanted someone that if we picked up the phone and called, would know us personally, instead of us just being another name on a roster to be forgotten. With Bonnie and Dungeon Promotions we found an avenue that we feel can be a successful partnership, but on a personal level as well. She’s very attentive to her bands, works hard for them, and actually cares for the people within. That’s something that was an important factor in our decision, and we can’t wait to see what this new partnership has in store for the next steps in our career.” says Taylor, founding member and guitarist for Cathercist.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to work with Cathercist. The band has such a great work ethic and has laid a firm foundation we can build upon and give them the opportunity to share this incredible band with the world,” says Bonnie Neves, owner of Dungeon Promotions. With some incredible plans being mapped out between the two entities, you should expect Cathercist to be an ever growing presence in the metal community worldwide.
