Faster Pussycat Release Double A-Side Single

Faster Pussycat has a new double A-side single out in ‘Like A Ghost‘ and ‘Pirate Love’ out digitally and available here. 

This release is the first for the band under the Golden Robot umbrella with Taime Downes saying earlier this year “The band and I are over the moon to join the Golden Robot Records rock-n-roll family! We are super excited to release some of our badass new tunes globally – we know the label see our vision and supports the band and we feel completely at home here.” 
The double A-side single comes just a few months before Faster Pussycat are expected to hit Australian shores with an exclusive Australian tour edition of the new single on coloured translucent blue 7″ vinyl available to purchase at those shows with only limited stock to be made available online. 
‘Like a Ghost’ is a track about growing up in the 70s, listening to the radio and doing what kids do and the memories it brings back. It features Downe’s signature vocals carrying the song through to completion. The production on this track is second to none with blistering guitars and the band in full force. 
‘Pirate Love’ is a cover by the legendary Johnny Thunders and stays true to the original with both tracks complimenting each other with strong instrumentals, killer vocals and an edge to them.

Originally formed during the mid-’80s glam rock era, Faster Pussycat has sold over 2 million albums worldwide and accompanied some of rock’s most distinguished names on tour, including Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley CrüeGuns N’ Roses and Kiss.

They have recently been on the road with Cinderella’s Tom Keifer and L.A. Guns for the North American Sonic Slam tour plus a series of their own headlining shows across the USA. As far as recorded material goes, they receive over 260k listeners per month on a singular streaming platform – proving that not only are they still a prominent force, able to successfully mould to the digital age, and just announced that the band has signed a new international record deal with Golden Robot Records.

The band’s signing with Golden Robot Records is hardly a surprise to those who know Golden Robot Records President and Founder Mark Alexander-Erber with him having his eye on the band for years before the signing came to fruition earlier this year.

“One of my all-time favourite signings is Faster Pussycat,” said the label founder. “They really fit in well to our Golden Robot Records family – They have been an integral part of the global rock scene for many years, and I’ve had the pleasure of listening to their new music which we will be releasing. I can tell you that they will be part of the worldwide music scene for many years to come based on the strength of their new music. There are exciting times ahead!” 

Alongside Downes, the band consist of Sam ‘Bam’ Koltun (Guitar), Danny Nordahl (Bass), Chad Stewart (Drums) and the latest addition to the band, Ronnie Simmons (Guitar).
