Catfish And The Bottlemen debut single ‘Homesick’ – June 17

Llandudno 4 piece Catfish And The Bottlemen will release their debut single ‘Homesick’ through Communion Records on June 17, 2013. Working with producer and Communion co-founder Ian Grimble (Daughter, British Sea Power, Red Hot Chili Peppers) at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales, ‘Homesick’ is the first offering from what is proving to be a hugely productive session. The track has already picked up radio plays from Steve Lamacq on 6Music and Zane Lowe on Radio 1, who tipped the single as his ‘Next Hype’ track.

Catfish And The Bottlemen signed to Communion Records (Ben Howard, Michael Kiwanuka, Deap Valley, Half Moon Run) this Spring, following a furious 18 month period which saw them play over 100 live shows both in the UK and abroad. Having honed their incredibly tight live set- which invariably sees frontman Van McCann climbing the walls and playing guitar as though his life depended on it- playing clubnights for Carl Barat and 6Music’s Chris Hawkins & persuading the likes of The Vaccines to attend their gigs, 2013 sees the band embarking on a headline UK tour- including London Barfly on June 3– alongside summer festival appearances at Dot to Dot, The Great Escape and Tramlines.

Catfish And The Bottlemen are Van McCann (vocals & guitar), Billy Bibby (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums). //@thebottlemen //
