My Cat Is An Alien abandon guitars and space toys for home made strings

A brief missive from the Opalio brothers today, as Roberto and Maurizio (aka My Cat Is An Alien) announce that they have abandoned their signature guitars and 'space toys', and swapped them for a new set of home made string instruments and reassembled electronic devices.

Roberto says: "Me and my brother decided to create a new beginning in sound: I started working with a totally new set of modified, de-constructed, electronic devices, while my brother self made a peculiar double-bodied string instrument."

A double LP using the new instruments will be released on Discrepant records in September, titled Art Is A Tear Of Noise And Infinite Silence.
