Biography

Active: 2010s
Country Of origin: Wales

British indie rock outfit Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in Llandudno, Wales, with members moving to the seaside town from as far away as Sheffield and Newcastle to complete the line-up. Cheshire-born singer/songwriter Ryan Evan "Van" McCann started the band, naming it after a street busker, Catfish and the Bottlemen, who he saw perform while traveling with his parents in Australia as a child. Initially the group featured guitarist Bill Bibby, bassist Benji Blakeway, and drummer Jon Barr. By 2010, Barr had left the group, replaced by Bob Hall. Pairing a staunch D.I.Y. ethic with a gritty, garage-laced sound, the Bottlemen gigged constantly throughout 2012 and 2013 before signing to Mumford & Sons bandmember Ben Lovett's Communion Records later that year. They released three singles on Communion before moving to Universal in 2014. After receiving a Best Newcomer Award from the BBC, they delivered their full-length debut, The Balcony, in September 2014. The album debuted at number ten on the U.K. charts, yielding the hit single "Kathleen."

Continuing to manage their heavy tour schedule, Catfish and the Bottlemen also spent part of 2015 in Los Angeles working on their follow-up album. In 2016, still riding the success of their debut, they took home a BRIT Award for British Breakthrough Act. Also that year, they returned with their sophomore album, The Ride, featuring the single "Soundcheck." The album peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200.

The single "Longshot" arrived in early 2019. It was the first music released from The Balance, the third album from Catfish and the Bottlemen. Produced by Jacknife Lee, The Balance arrived in April 2019. ~ Timothy Monger & Scott Kerr~ Rovi
