Catfish and the Bottlemen have made their US television debut, performing ‘Kathleen’ on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Meanwhile, the band recently revealed they’ve offered to write songs for Haim, after singer Van McCann met bassist Este Haim in Los Angeles. The pair met after Catfish And The Bottlemen played at Los Angeles venue The Echo in October last year on their US tour. McCann told NME he has already finished writing his band’s second album, and that he offered additional songs from the writing sessions to Haim.
“I was talking about writing songs with Este,” said McCann. “Haim are writing their second album, so I told her: ‘I’ve just done mine, so you can have one of my spare middle-eights if you want. If you ever need a middle-eight, I’m your man.'”
