Catfish And The Bottlemen have announced details of a new single, ‘Pacifier’, set to drop through Communion Records on December 9, 2013. It will be the third release from the hotly-tipped band, who have earned plaudits thus far from the likes of Clash, Q Magazine and NME, with radio support from Radio 1, 6Music and XFM, since emerging with debut single ‘Homesick’ earlier this year.
‘Pacifier’ is the follow up single to September’s ‘Rango’ and was preceded by a characteristically frenetic summer, which saw the 4 English boys from Llandudno perform on the BBC Introducing Stage at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festival (alongside the likes of Denai Moore, Thumpers and JAWS) amidst a ceaseless UK tour itinerary, which also took in sold-out London shows at The Barfly and Sebright Arms.
Catfish And The Bottlemen are Van McCann (vocals & guitar), Billy Bibby (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums). We at GIGsoup think there are big things ahead for these boys. They’ve already been described as ‘stadium ready’ and the confidence and maturity in all of the releases so far is a sure sign that 2014 is going to be an extremely big year for them.
