Live Gig Video: watch Catfish and the Bottlemen playing new single ‘7’ in the studio

Hot on the heels of touring their debut album ‘The Balcony’, Welsh indie rockers Catfish and the Bottlemen have recently announced details of their second full-length album ‘The Ride’, due out on the 27th of May via Island Records. The band introduced the new LP with the promo for album track ‘7’, which will also be released as a single on the 27th of May, available the same day as the new LP.

Intended as a Part 2 of the video for recent single ‘Soundcheck’ (stream it here), the promo for ‘7’ catches Vann McCann (lead vocals/guitar) and his bandmates Johnny Bond (guitar), Benji Blakeaway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums) in studio. The band were presumably hard at work on the new album, which was recorded in Los Angeles with Grammy award-winning producer Dave Sardy, though it seems there might have been a bit of extracurricular activity going on as well.

Surrounding the release of ‘The Ride’, Catfish and the Bottlemen will play sold out shows in Hull on the 14th of May, Northampton on the 21st of May and London on the 23rd and 25th of May. (As of this writing, tickets are still available for their gig at Margate Winter Gardens on Friday the 20th of May.) The band will also appear at Liverpool Sound City on Saturday the 28th of May and at Exeter’s Radio 1 Big Weekend on Sunday the 29th of May. TGTF’s previous coverage of Catfish and the Bottlemen is right back here.
