After playing our own Falls Festival and unleashing their first new song in three years ‘Longshot’ over the past few weeks, ya faves Catfish And The Bottlemen have now revealed that there’s plenty more where that came from!
Turns out ‘Longshot’ has been sliced off a brand spankin’ new album dubbed The Balance, which is due to be released on Friday, 26th April.
The band’s forthcoming third LP was recorded over a 12 month period with Irish producer Jacknife Lee, whose CV includes such blockbuster names as U2, The Killers and Weezer.
During the recording process, the Welsh rockers hid themselves away in complete seclusion at two separate locations: Grouse Lodge in Moate (Republic of Ireland) and The Chapelin, nestled in the countryside of East Lincolnshire.
“We loved living in the same place,” explains vocalist 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 continues. “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.”
Hopefully we get some BTS footage to go along with the new LP then, but for now, you can take the band’s fresh single ‘Longshot’ for another spin below.
