Catfish And The Bottlemen announce details of UK tour 2015

Catfish And The Bottlemen have today announced a run of UK and Ireland headline tour dates for 2015, beginning at O2 Academy Leeds on March 23 and ending at Dublin Whelan’s on April 8. The ten new dates will flank the previously announced shows at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on March 31 and April 1. Tickets for the new shows go on sale Friday 3rd October at 9am.

Catfish’s debut album The Balcony (out now through Communion/Island Records) went straight into the UK Top 10 on release earlier this month, coming ahead of a sold-out 18 date Winter 2014 headline tour, including a night at London Koko on November 7. The album has picked up Record of the Week slots at Radio 1 and 6Music, with the new single ‘Cocoon’ (out now) also on the A list at Radio 1, alongside playlist slots at 6Music and XFM, (plus their fifth consecutive Hottest Record in The World from Zane Lowe) and announced for the EA SPORTS FIFA 15 soundtrack alongside the likes of Jungle, Rudimental and Kasabian.

The much-anticipated release of The Balcony comes on the tail end of a hugely successful summer for the English lads from Llandudno, which has seen them play over 30 festival dates- to a collective audience of over 175,000 people- including the likes of Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Bestival and T In The Park, plus Ibiza/Mallorca Rocks alongside Jake Bugg. The debut album - recorded with Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys) on production duties- also includes the singles Homesick (Zane Lowe Next Hype, XFM Evening playlist), Rango (Radio 1 BBC Introducing Playlist, Zane Lowe’s 100 Hottest Tracks of The Year, XFM Daytime playlist), Pacifier (Radio 1 INMWT playlist, XFM daytime playlist), Kathleen (Radio 1 playlist, 6Music Playlist, XFM Daytime playlist) and Fallout (Radio 1 playlist, Absolute playlist, XFM Daytime playlist and 6Music playlist).
