New Single

Catfish and the Bottlemen “Longshot”

Press Release: (Hollywood, CA) Catfish and the Bottlemen’s young and growing fanbase finally get their hit of new music as the band releases their single “Longshot” today via Capitol Records.


Revealed exclusively on BBC Radio One’s Future Sounds With Annie Mac, the single was produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers). The dramatic, one-take birds-eye video filmed on an English cliffside by long-time collaborator Jim Canty completes their emphatic return.

New music arrives on the cusp of a string of sold-out U.K. arena dates in February and the announcement of the band’s transatlantic return with an upcoming U.S. headline tour. Kicking off March 12, the run will bring the band to the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA on March 22 and Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on April 3. This will be Catfish and the Bottlemen’s first tour in the States since their nationwide stadium jaunt with Green Day in 2017. Tickets are on sale this Friday, January 11, and full routing can be found below.

Tumbling into 2019 with a succession of festival appearances in Australia, Van McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert “Bob” Hall (drums), and Benji Blakeway (bass) return home to the U.K. to begin a new and exciting chapter. As “Longshot” makes its impact, the band consolidates their hard-earned status as an arena act, teasing signs of the anticipated follow-up to 2014’s platinum-certified debut, The Balcony and 2016’s gold, number one album, The Ride.

Practically of no fixed abode, Catfish and the Bottlemen have toured constantly since their formation, now over a decade ago. The past eighteen months have seen the band claim their place as a bona fide arena band at home, adding a sold-out UK arena tour in February 2019 to an impressive list of already conquered stages. Significantly, it also invited more quality time with global fans on tours to South America, Australia, Japan, and the United States, culminating in an electrifying main-stage performance at Lollapalooza in 2018.“Longshot” hints that the band’s rapid ascent to “big hall” players has crossed over to influence their time in the studio.

Reverb Nation Spotlight:

Too Discover The Dark And Dreamy Music Of The Up And Coming Danish Duo

Delving into the musical escape of Wolf Lies Down is a magnificent journey of ethereal beauty amidst somber, brooding melodies. The Danish duo of Ida Spinner and Thomas Dahl Larsen are gifted songwriters with an innate ability to capture a feeling and touch your soul. Their years of hard work have come to fruition with their recent debut album In The Dark.


Both musicians began traveling down their musical path at a very young age. Ida grew up surrounded by classical music and was given a piano by her parents at the age of seven. Her early musical memories include making “weird melodies” right away and recording a cover version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers song “Give It Away” at her uncle’s recording studio by age eleven. Thomas discovered the bass at age ten when he saw his older brother playing it in the school band. He went on to teach himself guitar and a variety of other instruments by listening to music as well as practicing both alone and with friends. The duo first met back in 2005 when they were introduced by mutual friends from the Danish band Saybia, a group that Thomas played lead guitar for until until he departed the band in 1997. The friends knew that neither Spinner or Larsen were in a steady band and according to Ida

“They had an idea we could make great music together.”
