Catfish And The Bottlemen have announced details of a UK tour to take place in October and November and we are proud to announce they will be stopping by Rock City's Main Hall.

Speaking to NME in a recent interview, McCann talked up the band's new album, "I think a little bomb will go off in the music industry and people will go ‘Who’s making all that racket?’" he said. "It’s miles better than the last album. The band’s 10 times better, the crew’s 10 times better and we’re all 10 times better looking."

Speaking of his aims for the album, McCann commented: “I wanted to make a life-affirming record for normal heads – people who get up and just want to have a good day. They’ll put it on and think ‘Fuck, this feels mint.’ It’s proper arms-out music. I want to make you feel the way The Strokes did, but with the enormity of Oasis and the lyrics of The Streets."

The band also recently unveiled the video for their new single 'Hourglass', which stars Ewan McGregor. The actor became friends with the group after they cut up clips of McGregor’s films and compiled them into a video for their song ‘Kathleen’. The sleeve for the single, out on June 22, was taken by McGregor’s daughter Clara.
