Catfish and The Bottlemen announce huge Swansea show

It will be the band's biggest Welsh headline show to date.

Catfish and The Bottlemen have announced details of their biggest Welsh headline show to date.

The chart-topping rockers will take to the stage at Swansea’s Singleton Park on Saturday 23 May, in what will be their only show in Wales in 2020.

The band will be supported by You Me At Six, Feeder and Yonaka.

Catfish recently completed an arena tour of the UK, which included sell out shows in Glasgow, Birmingham, Leeds and London, and are currently wrapping up a sold out tour of North America.

It finishes a remarkably busy year for the Van McCann fronted band, who throughout 2019 have completed five US tours and three UK arena tours, as well as numerous runs across Australia, Japan and mainland Europe.

Alongside touring, the four-piece managed to find time to write, record and release their third studio album The Balance, which dropped this past summer to critical acclaim and commercial success.

The record has spawned four singles so far: Longshot, Fluctuate, 2all and latest release Conversation.

Formed in Llandudno on the North Wales coast, the four-piece released their debut album The Balcony in 2014 introducing the world to hits such as Kathleen and Cocoon, before releasing sophomore full-length The Ride in 2016.

In total, the band’s music has now been streamed more than 1 billion times.

Not planning on putting the brakes on anytime soon, Catfish and the Bottlemen will be hitting the road again in summer 2020 for a run of festival appearances and select shows across Europe, including their biggest Welsh headline show to date at Swansea’s Singleton Park.

The band will be joined at the gig by Surrey rockers You Me At Six, who released their latest album VI in October 2018 and are known for tracks such as Save It For The Bedroom, Underdog and Lived A Lie. 

Legendary Welsh rockers Feeder are also set to appear, bringing with them an arsenal of singalong anthems such as Just The Way I’m Feeling, Just A Day and Buck Rogers.

Rising Brighton dark pop makers Yonaka are also set to appear at the one-off date.

Here are Catfish and the Bottlemen’s confirmed UK dates:

23 May 2020 – Singleton Park, Swansea w/ You Me At Six, Feeder and Yonaka
24 May 2020 – Neighbourhood Weekender, Warrington

Tickets for Catfish and The Bottlemen’s newly announced Swansea show will be available from 10:00 on Friday 6 December 2019, and tickets to see them headline Neighbourhood Weekender are available now. Grab all through Ticketmaster.co.uk
