At a presentation in Melbourne on Thursday night, Something for Kate received their GOLD RECORD AWARDS for sales of the album Beautiful Sharks. It’s the work of a loyal fan base and word of mouth that has turned so many people onto the music of Something for Kate.

After the debut of many new songs over the past months at both solo and band shows, we here at somethingingforkate.com are eagerly looking forward to the release of the third album, the follow up to Beautiful Sharks early next year.

If you have a chance to see Paul Dempsey solo at the Livid Festival or the band at the Homebake Festival in Sydney you’ll be treated to a taste of what to expect.

Congratulations to the Band and Management.

  TRULY ! Many people have written lately asking where they can get hold of this track.

TRULY was originally available on the EP ‘Intermission’, which was a limited edition and sold out not long after its release. The Vinyl copies of the debut album ‘Elsewhere for Eight Minutes’ include a second disc, that is the EP ‘Intermission’ and would be your best chance to own that EP. the original CD-EP can sometimes be found in collectors stores or online auctions (ebay), however this is a sought after item and is reflected in the price you’d be asked to pay.

A live version of TRULY was included on the Compilation Video ‘Big Screen Television’ this video is available from most record stores, or try an online retailer for a copy (Whammo).

There are no plans to re-release TRULY again, so the video represents possibly your last chance to purchase this track.
