Bad Luck Kitty from Australia have hit the road running smashing out their new album 'Afortunado Diablo' around Australia starting with the Shepparton Shake-Out 3-5 Feb 17.

Bad Luck Kitty's first album 'Afortunado Diablo' launched with huge success at the Shepparton Shake-out.  The album is a culmination of all of the bands influences and is a roller coaster ride of Rockabilly, Swing, Psychobilly and even Spaghetti Western style tracks. 

Bad Luck Kitty from Newcastle, Australia have moved into 2017 with a bang. With Adam Gear (The Captain) on Gretsch and lead vocals, Rusty Rebel from Canberra on the double bass, and on drums Tom Blake (Tommy Gunn) who also lends his vocals to 'Baby Don't Come Home' on the album, the boys from this high-energy high-octane band have been travelling down the east coast from Brisbane to Canberra wowing crowds with their unique and modern rockabilly sound. Performing to rock n roll dancers and rockabilly enthusiasts, they have made a name for themselves in the kustom culture scene in venues and at events such as the Byron Bay International Bluesfest, Chromefest, and supporting international acts of the likes of Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers from Texas on their Australian tour.

Afortunado Diablo will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon, Napster and many more platforms in February 2017.  This new album from Bad Luck Kitty is one that needs to be added to your collection so that you can be singing along to it (and you will be) at their next show.
