Pure electricity crackled across the fields of Britain and Europe this summer with Catfish and The Bottlemen’s pulse-quickening, headline festival performances and their own acclaimed open-air shows. Barely pausing for breath, the band announces that they’re staying on the move to maintain their unstoppable ascent with a 6-date UK and Ireland Tour planned for February 2019.
The band sees out 2018 with New Year dates in Australia before returning to their committed and ever-growing fan base at home.
The newly announced dates are:
· Tue 19 Feb 2019 Nottingham, Motorpoint Arena
· Wed 20 Feb 2019 Plymouth, Pavilions
· Fri 22 Feb 2019 London, The SSE Arena, Wembley (rescheduled date)
· Sat 23 Feb 2019 Hull, Bonus Arena
· Tue 26 Feb 2019 Dublin, The Olympia Theatre
· Wed 27 Feb 2019 Belfast, Ulster Hall
Preparing fans for material to follow their 2016, gold-status album, The Ride and platinum-certified debut album The Balcony, Catfish and The Bottlemen made new track, Fluctuate, a regular fixture in their summer 2018 set lists. As if it had always been there, fans sang the lyrics passionately back at venerated frontman and songwriter, Van McCann, offering the strongest suggestion yet, if not confirmation, that the pipeline of new material strikes with the same unapologetic ambition of the hit singles that have gone before.
Admitting to being happily of ‘no fixed abode’ due to near constant touring and recording since the release of their debut album in 2014, McCann leads Johnny Bond (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums) into a refreshed campaign, bidding to eclipse their previous, towering acheivements and take the next step as established festival and arena headliners.
