We are a three piece progressive rock band from upstate New York. We dabble in all different genres, from metal and punk to electronica, ambient, and the occasional hip hop flavored odd track.
It's all coming down.
Cats don't have souls was formed in june 2006 by songwriter, multi instrumentalist, vocalist, producer/engineer j. Sebastiano... Over the past 6 years, cdhs has recorded over 100 songs ranging from punk, post punk, goth, and ielectro to progressive epics, sludge metal dirges, hardcore and post hardcore. While there have been many people to come and go in the history of cdhs, in 2009, Matt Bowman joined on drums and managed to hang on to his position without flaking out too many times. In March 2012, Chad O'Conner joined the band to hold down the bass duties... Then he quit 2 months later... Our friend Tom filled in for 2 shows, and then broke his finger less than 3 days before the show... Then Emil Merdzhanov answered an add looking for a permanent bass player, and showed up the next day... and fucking nailed 8 songs down like a pro.... in the band less than a week... and rocked the fuck out of our set. That's how we do it around here.

in some form or another, cdhs has played a shit load of cool shows... I would say, Valentines and Lark tavern (rip) are our favs...we sucked hella ass at the halloween freakout back in 2009 at valentines albany, but I don't remember the night that well.. I know I drank a lot, and it was halloween, so that makes good by default... Then there was another show at goodbye blue mondays with nixons spirit somewhere in brooklyn. I got really drunk again, but we played well, until Chris put threw his bass in the middle of a song because he broke a string, and took 2 and a half minutes to get his other bass... other than that, it was a good night... I remember smoking bible paper blunts and drinking a bottle of the cheapest wine they had and losing a big bag of weed and being depressed about it in the morning.
