May 26th will be the releasedate of the new solo album from one of the UK`s best loved singers. Bob Catley`s fourth album, "When Empires Burn".
The album was written and produced by Bob`s long time keyboard player, Paul Hodson (also of TEN) and is a natural progression from the style of his previous three albums but with a heavier, classic rock feel akin to the best work of Dio (Rainbow "Rising", Black Sabbath "Heaven and Hell" and Dio "Holy Diver"). "When Empires Burn" not only marks a change in the songwriting department but is also the first to feature Bob`s touring band of guitarist Vince O`Regan, bassist Al Barrow and drummer Jamie Little.
The album will contain eleven tracks; "The Torment (intro)", "Children Of The Circle", "Gonna Live Forever", "The Prophecy", "I`ll Be Your Fool", "Every Beat Of My Heart", "When Empires Burn", "Meaning Of Love", "This Is The Day", "Someday Uptopia" and "My America" but there will be a limited edition initial pressing of 10,000 copies which will contain two extra tracks, "Heaven Can Wait" and the demo version of "When The Earth Lies Still" (a track set for inclusion on Bob`s next solo album). This special edition will also be released in digipak form.
