Welsh indie rockers Catfish and The Bottlemen have announced headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne around their national tour supporting The Kooks.
This will be their first visit to Australia. With their current single Cocoon currently on high rotation on triple j, they’ve also had several of their singles premiered on Zane Lowe’s iconic “Hottest Record In The World” segment, and garnered play listing on Radio 1. In recent times they’ve performed at over thirty international festivals including Reading & Leeds, Latitude and Governors Ball in NYC gaining a high reputation for their explosive live shows.
Led by the enigmatic Van McCann, Catfish And The Bottlemen look set to put their stamp on 2014 with their stunning debut album The Balcony not only gaining plaudits from all quarters, but also going Top Ten on the UK album chart last month.
The Balcony is produced by Jim Abiss (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian), and written by Van McCann and is packed full of radio favourites, with new single ‘Pacifier’ following the Radio 1, XFM and 6MUsic playlisted tracks ‘Cocoon’, ‘Homesick’, ‘Rango’ and ‘Kathleen’.
Catfish And The Bottlemen are Van McCann (vocals & guitar), Billy Bibby (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums).
Tickets will be available for pre-sale beginning Monday, December 1st and general on sale Wednesday, December 3rd.
