January 6 via Communion Records.
The band will make their late night television debut on the “Late Show with David Letterman” January 7 to celebrate the U.S. release. In addition, the album’s single “Kathleen” recently reached #1 on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation and is also charting in the top 40 on Alternative Radio Charts.
The Balcony was produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele) and includes tracks off the band’s acclaimed EP Kathleen and the Other Three as well as new, never-before recorded songs. The record was released earlier this year in the U.K. and Europe and charted in the top 10 on the official U.K. albums chart.
The release follows a year of extensive touring for the British rockers. They played to massive crowds at over 30 festivals including Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Ibiza Rocks, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball and Life is Beautiful. The band will return stateside to tour throughout the winter. See below for full routing details.
Catfish and the Bottlemen are Van McCann (lead vocals, guitar), Johnny Bond (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums). Hailing from North Wales, the band signed to Communion Records in 2013 and made a splash onto the London music scene soon after, playing over 100 shows in 2014 alone.
