Catfish And The Bottlemen Announce 2015 Headline Tour

Debut album: The Balcony – out now

Catfish And The Bottlemen have today announced a run of UK & Ireland headline tour dates for 2015, beginning at Leeds 02 Academy on March 23 and ending at Dublin Whelan’s on April 8. The ten new dates will flank the previously announced shows at London O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on March 31 and April 1.

Catfish’s debut album The Balcony (out now through Communion/Island Records) went straight into the UK Top 10 on release earlier this month, coming ahead of a sold-out 18 date Winter 2014 headline tour, including a night at London Koko on November 7. The album has picked up Record of the Week slots at Radio 1 & 6Music, with the new single ‘Cocoon’ (out now) also on the A list at Radio 1, alongside playlist slots at 6Music and XFM, (plus their fifth consecutive Hottest Record in The World from Zane Lowe) and announced for the EA SPORTS FIFA 15 soundtrack alongside the likes of Jungle, Rudimental and Kasabian.

The much-anticipated release of The Balcony comes on the tail end of a hugely successful summer for the English lads from Llandudno, which has seen them play over 30 festival dates- to a collective audience of over 175,000 people- including the likes of Reading & Leeds, Latitude, Bestival and T In The Park, plus Ibiza/Mallorca Rocks alongside Jake Bugg. The debut album – recorded with Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys) on production duties- also includes the singles Homesick (Zane Lowe Next Hype, XFM Evening playlist), Rango (Radio 1 BBC Introducing Playlist, Zane Lowe’s 100 Hottest Tracks of The Year, XFM Daytime playlist), Pacifier (Radio 1 INMWT playlist, XFM daytime playlist), Kathleen (Radio 1 playlist, 6Music Playlist, XFM Daytime playlist) and Fallout (Radio 1 playlist, Absolute playlist, XFM Daytime playlist & 6Music playlist).

Praise for The Balcony

Indie stars in waiting – Time Out

Like The Walkmen’s ‘The Rat’ realised as a full band – NME

Killer guitar skills and major charisma – Nylon

They managed the rare rock n roll feat of being simultaneously whip-tight and raucously atmospheric, and brought to mind the early, pre-stardom days of Arctic Monkeys. Expect to hear more from them Daily Telegraph

Catfish and The Bottlemen’s sound seems so fully formed that it’s difficult to reconcile yourself to the fact that The Balcony is really their debut record Clash

Just the kind of surging indie pop- think Mystery Jets meets the Kooks – that the Brits do so well Noisey

Straight outta Llandudno comes this blast of insouciant, hormone-fuelled indie-rock – The Times

Armed with a repertoire of hectic, but undeniably catchy tunes, the band channel indie rock’s brightest moments of the last 20 years – Esquire Magazine //@thebottlemen //
