Former Catfish & The Bottlemen guitarist Billy Bibby releases new single – listen

Bibby formed Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles in autumn 2015

Former Catfish and the Bottlemen guitarist Billy Bibby has released a new single with his new band, Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles.

‘Are You Ready?’ is available now and follows the release of EP ‘Bide Your Time’. Listen to it below now.

Speaking about the track, Bibby said: “This song was the last one to be practiced and finished as a band before our first tour together, but it seemed to stand out as a major contender for the next single.”

He continued: “Towards the back end of the tour I started to tell the crowd that this was possibly the next single and to tell me if they thought it should be or not after we played it. I think they all agreed, so that was all the evidence needed for me and the lads to go get back in the studio and record this catchy little number!”
