Indie Rock Band Catfish & The Bottlemen Live From The Backyard Stage At The Amp Thursday
This fall, as they approach 1 billion global streams indie rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen return to the road in North America for a two-week headline tour and will make a stop in St. Augustine as they play the Backyard Stage at The Amp on Thursday, October 10, 2019.
Renowned for explosive gigs, Catfish and the Bottlemen’s live presence attracts widespread praise. The Austin American-Statesman called the band “an extraordinarily tight ensemble,” praising their “high-energy live show, with riveting frontman Van McCann at the center of the sonic maelstrom.” After a show in New York City, AXS wrote, “it’s no wonder they’ve become one of the hottest new names in rock music.”
Meanwhile, the group’s third album The Balance, which debuted at #9 on the Top Rock Albums chart, continues to make waves. Its breakout single “Longshot” ascended to #2 at Alternative Radio, where it has spent over six weeks in the top five, and has surpassed 45 million global streams. They recently lit up the Outdoor Stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! with a performance of “Longshot.”
The Balance was recorded by Van McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert ‘Bob’ Hall (drums) and Benji Blakeway (bass) over a 12-month period in the company of Irish producer, Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers), in two secluded studios; Grouse Lodge, in Moate, Republic of Ireland, and The Chapel in the countryside of East Lincolnshire, and mixed by Craig Silvey (Florence + the Machine, Arcade Fire).
Patrons are asked to be 14 or older; there will be no adult accompanied infants allowed in the venue for this event.
