The SAY Award-nominated Glasgow quartet Catholic Action will return with their sophomore album Celebrated by Strangers in March
2020. 
New single One Of Us packs a fuzzed-out stomp alongside masterfully giddy melodies that sees lead singer and guitarist Chris
McCrory recount “the welfare son of a welfare son”, taking aim at the billionaire-owned media and their Bullingdon Club ilk who shirk
responsibility for sowing the division we see in the UK.
It sets the tone for a record that asks both searching questions of the self, while pointing the finger at inaction in the wider world.

Through a procession of skittish, off-kilter riffs and squawking saxophones, Celebrated by Strangers doesn’t just call for action, it
demands it. Fizzing with invention, accusation, self-belief and creativity, it never stutters under the weight of its own message. 
The album was produced by lead singer and guitarist Chris McCrory (SPINN, Walt Disco) at Hermitage Works in London and at Shady
Lane Studio in Erskine, and mixed by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Cabbage, The Coral) at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool.
