Catfish And The Bottlemen announce new arena tour

November shows are revealed on the day new album 'The Balance' is released

Catfish And The Bottlemen have announced a new arena tour for November.

The four shows have been revealed on the day the band’s new album ‘The Balance’ is released.

Tickets for the concerts go on sale at 10am next Friday (May 3). The full dates are below.

The shows follow a seven-date arena tour which kicks off on Sunday (April 28) at Galway Leisureland, ending at Manchester Arena on May 8.

In between the two arena tours, the four-piece also play Radio 1’s One Big Weekend event on May 26, before headlining Citadel and TRNSMT festivals in July. They also play a show in Mexico City on June 4, after the band’s fans in Mexico launched a petition on for them to do a concert in the country.

Produced by Jacknife Lee, ‘The Balance’ is Catfish And The Bottlemen’s third album. It follows the sequence of their first two albums ”The Balcony’ and ‘The Ride’ by having a two-word album title starting with ‘The’ and with all the songtitles comprising of just one word. Its singles have been ‘Longshot’, ‘Fluctuate’ and ‘2All’.

As with ‘The Ride’, the band have kept a very low media profile around ‘The Balance’. They were trolled online by Shame in January. After the announcement of ‘The Balance’, Shame tweeted: “The first letters of each of the songs on this album spell out ‘shit band’.” Catfish didn’t respond.

The full dates for Catfish And The Bottlemen’s November tour are:
Monday November 4: Birmingham Arena
Tuesday November 5: Newcastle Utilita Arena
Sunday November 10: Liverpool M&S Bank Arena
Monday November 11: Leeds First Direct Arena
