Catfish and the Bottlemen are back with their latest single “Longshot”. Revealed exclusively on BBC Radio One’s Future Sounds With Annie Mac, the single was produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers) and comes along with a new music video. The dramatic, one-take birds-eye video filmed on an English cliffside by long-time collaborator Jim Canty completes their emphatic return.
New music arrives on the cusp of a string of sold-out U.K. arena dates in February and the announcement of the band’s transatlantic return with an upcoming U.S. headline tour. Kicking off March 12, the run will bring the band to the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA on March 22 and Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on April 3. This will be Catfish and the Bottlemen’s first tour in the States since their nationwide stadium jaunt with Green Day in 2017. Tickets are on sale this Friday, January 11, and full routing can be found below.
Tumbling into 2019 with a succession of festival appearances in Australia, Van McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert “Bob” Hall (drums), and Benji Blakeway (bass) return home to the U.K. to begin a new and exciting chapter.
Practically of no fixed abode, Catfish and the Bottlemen have toured constantly since their formation, now over a decade ago. The past eighteen months have seen the band claim their place as a bona fide arena band at home, adding a sold-out UK arena tour in February 2019 to an impressive list of already conquered stages. Significantly, it also invited more quality time with global fans on tours to South America, Australia, Japan, and the United States, culminating in an electrifying main-stage performance at Lollapalooza in 2018.“Longshot” hints that the band’s rapid ascent to “big hall” players has crossed over to influence their time in the studio.
