Getting chased around by scantily clad nuns isn't an everyday occurrence for most of us. But for Australian superstars The Cat Empire it's not necessarily out of the ordinary. Watch as said nuns herd up the guys and drop them off in the back alley of a Melbourne venue. The video culminates with the band onstage, replete with a massive crowd, horn section and - you guessed it - dancing nuns.
For the uninitiated, The Cat Empire have been lauded for their insanely fun, high-intensity live shows. After all, they've traveled across five continents and have performed over 600 gigs. In September, they broke records at The Metro in Sydney by selling out eight consecutive nights at the venue. In the States they've visited virtually every corner of the country, selling out shows and playing festivals like Bonnaroo.
Watch the video for "So Many Nights":
Their latest album, 'So Many Nights,' is due out April 22 on Velour Music Group. The new record, now certified platinum down under, features plenty of horns, expertly crafted songs and danceable Latin rhythms to keep you moving. It's the perfect way to welcome spring, warmer weather and fun in the sun.
