The four-piece band are centred around the singular talents of vocalist and guitarist Chris McCrory – already known among key taste-makers as the drummer in Casual Sex, another of Glasgow's leading musical lights.
Debut album In Memory Of was released last year and is a vivid collection of smart guitar-pop anthems, the record is as rewarding as it is challenging and features heavily-rotated Radio 1 favourites, L.U.V. and Propaganda.
Speaking about the album frontman Chris McCrory said:
"In Memory Of has been a long time coming for us .. It's a record we're incredibly proud of and we hope you are too."
Produced by McCrory and Margo Broom, In Memory Of combines a youthful energy with an innate songwriting prowess and shines with a rarely seen confidence.
Catholic Action have released New Year, the new single from the début album, which is joined by brand new song Little Girl as its b-side.
Speaking about the tracks, singer McCrory said:
"One for falling out of, and one for falling in...Two songs about love. A party and a poem for afterwards."
The band are already knee deep in recording album number two
. McCrory told NME radar:
"I think we've recorded about twelve tracks already… I'll be happy when we hit twenty-five, then we're going to melt it all into something beautiful that flows from cover to cover.
"I want Kevin Shields to play guitar on it. I want to change what it means to be in a guitar band."
Catholic Action play The Hope, Brighton, on Wednesday 21st March 2018. CLICK HERE for more info.
