So Many Nights is The Cat Empire's fourth studio album. On 30 July 2007, the band announced on their website[3] and to their mailing list that the album has been released on 22 September. The release of the album was followed by an Australian tour in September and October. On 14 October, the band broke a record by playing eight shows in seven nights at Sydney's Metro Theatre. The previous record was held by You Am I for seven shows in seven nights at the same venue.

The Cat Empire held a massive launch party at the Prince of Wales in Melbourne on 22 September at midnight to promote the launch of the new album. "No Longer There" was the first single from the album, and was released on 8 September.

On 19 September, the entire album was added to a site for free streaming, three days before its Australian release.

So Many Nights debuted and peaked at number two on the ARIA Albums Chart on 7 October.[4]
