Second Cardiff date announced by Catfish & the Bottlemen

Multi-Platinum-selling, BRIT Award-winning, arena-filling giants Catfish and the Bottlemen will now play TWOhuge shows at Cardiff Castle this summer.

Due to phenomenal demand for their already announced July 19 show, it is announced they will also play a second date on Saturday July 20 after a pre-sale via Catfish and the Bottlemen’s own channels sold out in ONE MINUTE today.

Tickets to both shows go on general sale at 10:00 GMT on Friday March 1st from depotlive.co.uk

The announcement of the two Cardiff dates coincides with the release of anthemic, stadium ready new single ‘Showtime’ via Island Records. Listen HERE

Frontman, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Van McCann recorded the song in Los Angeles with multi-GRAMMY winning producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, Rolling Stones). Reflecting the sun-kissed optimism of LA and marking a bold evolution in Van’s songwriting, it is the first track to be released from Catfish and the Bottlemen’s soon to be announced fourth studio album.

Revered for their incendiary live performances, as well as performing at TK Maxx Presents Depot Live at Cardiff Castle, Catfish and the Bottlemen will also head to Edinburgh Summer Sessions on August 24 and return to headline the Reading and Leeds Festival main stage.

Catfish and the Bottlemen’s arena-filling sonic outlook has cemented their place among Britain’s most successful bands of the 21st Century. Signing to Island Records in 2014 after years of relentless touring, their debut LP The Balcony surged into the UK Top 10 and helped them scoop British Breakthrough Act at the BRITs before scoring their landmark #1 album with The Ride. Since then, they’ve amassed more than one billion streams, two million album sales and are closing in on 10 million single sales. On stage Van McCann possesses unique magnetic energy and is considered one of modern rock’s great live frontmen. In the five years since releasing their debut album, they’d sold more than half a million tickets, and have played to more than two million people.

Van McCann is back where he’s meant to be: headlining festivals, finishing a brand new album, and beginning a dynamic, exciting new era for Catfish and the Bottlemen.

The headlining show for TK Maxx Presents Depot Live at Cardiff Castle is presented by promoters DEPOT Live and Cuffe and Taylor.

Nick Saunders from DEPOT Live said: “There has been huge demand for tickets today so we are delighted to be adding a second date for what will be two massive nights with these Welsh legends.
