As foretaste of My Cat Is An Alien’s 20th anniversary in 2018, their new LP "RE-SI-STEN-ZA!" well represents the summa of the duo's music activity, from their early space toys-era to the latest self-made electronics and string instruments outputs. Featuring two of the duo's longest compositions, the album reaches 50 minutes of NEW ALIEN MUSIC, that My Cat Is An Alien claim to be "the complete communion between Alpha and Omega". How to "resist"?

Private gorgeous "Metallic Gold Wax" edition, limited to 300 copies only! Entirely designed and handcrafted by MCIAA. Tri-fold sleeve in nice textured fine art cardboard, with 12”x16” folded cover/insert. Includes antique map replica poster plus 3 special inserts on parchment paper with full credits, photographs, a foreword by Roberto Opalio, and a new MCIAA's portrait. Includes full-album Digital Download collector's card.


"The theme of resistance is one that has arguably shaped MCIAA’s entire career, as there are few other artists who have been so unwaveringly challenging and iconoclastic for as long as the Opalios. The average My Cat is an Alien album has absolute zero common ground with anything happening in the mundane world of the masses, as Maurizio and Roberto seem to exclusively look to the stars or search inwardly for their inspirations instead.[...]
[...] Everyone already indoctrinated into My Cat is an Alien’s singular vision already knows that this is an essential release, but it may very well be the perfect entry point for the curious as well..” – ANTHONY D'AMICO / BRAINWASHED

“RE-SI-STEN-ZA!” is a super limited two-track juggernaut […] The title track finds MCIAA at the height of their wiring and warping powers, an absolute wig flipped tour de force that sees them morphing through elements of noise, musique concrete, stoner earthbeat and cosmic spiritualism to craft out a truly immense and often brutal cranium collapsing palette of psychotropic goo which across 25 minutes of head tripping groove shapeshifts with such out there aplomb that you literally fear your mind might fry.” – MARK BARTON (The Sunday Experience)
