The rock band hail from the coastal town of Llandudno. They battled their way to success, busking in car parks and competing in regional contests before finally signing to Communion Records in 2013 and later Island Records.
Defining undimmed ambition as the flag bearers for energetic, arena-filling alternative rock, Catfish and the Bottlemen mark the release of their third album, The Balance by announcing additional UK dates to follow a string of nationwide sell outs, summer festival headline dates and international appearances. Their third album after a wait of almost three years, following 2014’s The Ride and 2016’s The Balcony(selling over one million copies between them), The Balance hits the playlists of a growing, ceaselessly passionate community of young fans worldwide. The response to recent singles, including Longshot (achieving 30 million streams and counting), has only fanned the flames of expectation. It’s when the band and their fans meet in supercharged performance that the Catfish phenomenon becomes boisterously apparent and four new UK arena dates are announced to meet ever increasing demand for tickets.
