Catfish and the Bottlemen to play huge gig in Sheffield
Indie band Catfish and the Bottlemen have announced a huge gig at Sheffield’s FlyDSA Arena on 7 May, with tickets going on sale Friday 1 February at 10am.
The band have also announced that their long-awaited third album, The Balance, will be released on Friday 26 April. In the breaks between Catfish’s 2018 festival dates, they retreated to a lodge in Moate, Ireland with local producer Jacknife Lee to carefully craft The Balance over a 12-month period.
“We loved living in the same place,” said front man Van McCann. “We were staying there the whole time, so we were waking up around each other and working until we needed to go to bed. Jacknife was always up. He was the first up and the last awake. It’s good when you’re completely engulfed in recording in a place like that, living together, because every day and all day it was about the songs. We had fun too; they were the funniest album sessions we’ve done.”
Tickets are priced at £31.92 and £26.32 (including booking fee) and go on general sale Friday 1 February 10am from flydsaarena.co.uk, ticket hotline 0114 256 56 56 or in person from the Sheffield City Hall box office.
