Album of the Week
The post-punk duo release Infancy part II – the closing six tracks of their debut.
Catfish and The Bottlemen have added four arena dates to their upcoming UK tour.
The new shows will see the band take to the stage in Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool and Leeds this November.
Tickets for the newly announced shows will be available from 10:00 Friday 3 May 2019.
The tour celebrates the release of the band’s new album, The Balance, which dropped today on Island Records.
Watch the official video for the album’s lead single Longshot below:
The four-piece released their debut album in 2014. The Balcony introduced the world to hits such as Kathleen and Cocoon, before the band released sophomore full-length The Ride in 2016.
Latest record The Balance was recorded with Irish producer Jacknife Lee across the Republic of Ireland and in the East Lincolnshire countryside.
“We were staying there the whole time, so we were waking up around each other and working until we needed to go to bed,” vocalist and guitarist Van McCann explains. “Jacknife was always up. He was the first up and the last awake. It’s good when you’re completely engulfed in recording in a place like that, living together, because every day and all day it was about the songs. We had fun too; they were the funniest album sessions we’ve done.”
The record features Longshot as well as recent live favourite Fluctuate.
The newly announced dates follow the band’s upcoming May UK tour and summer festival appearances.
