Welsh 4 piece Catfish And The Bottlemen signed to Communion Records (Ben Howard, Michael Kiwanuka, Deap Valley, Half Moon Run) last Spring, following a furious 18 month period which saw them play over 100 live shows both in the UK and abroad- where October of last year saw them play over twenty shows alone. In the summer of 2014, Catfish and the Bottlemen performed at over 30 festivals in the UK/Europe including Reading & Leeds, Latitude, Kendal Calling, Tramlines, Ibiza Rocks, and Governors Ball in New York City.They are set to play a number of Irish shows in april 2015 including Limelight 2 in Belfast on Tuesday 7th April.
With the preparation for a debut album in full swing, the band have a few upcoming February shows which are a relatively short stint by Catfish standards. The dates come off the back of an incredibly promising year for the ATC-managed four piece, who rounded off 2013 with a Radio 1 In New Music We Trust playlist for latest single ‘Pacifier’ (out now), plus a spot on Zane Lowe’s 100 Hottest Tracks of the year for previous release, the NME and Q-approved ‘Rango’. Catfish were also confirmed on the bill for Radio 1’s Future Festival at their Maida Vale studios this year, alongside the likes of Sam Smith, NMEK, Royal Blood and Sampha.
