Catfish and The Bottlemen return ahead of new album with ‘Soundcheck’ – hear new song now

Band will release their second album later this year

Catfish and the Bottlemen have returned with new single ‘Soundcheck’.

Produced by Dave Sardy, the track is the first new material from the band since the release of debut album ‘The Balcony’ in 2014 and wil feature on their new album, due for release later this year.

“I feel like the last album was the support band, or even the soundcheck and this one’s the headliner,” frontman Van McCann says of ‘Soundcheck’.


Catfish and the Bottlemen play headline shows at Liverpool Sound City (May 28) and Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl (July 8) as well as a host of festival dates. See below for full details.

The band play the following UK festivals:
