CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

Catfish and the Bottlemen’s third album,The Balance, will be out Friday, April 26 via Capitol Records. The album is now available for preorder HERE.
In the breaks between electrifying outdoor and festival shows in 2018, Van McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert Bob Hall (drums), and Benji Blakeway (bass) retreated with Irish producer Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers) to carefully craft The Balance over a 12-month period. Recorded in seclusion at two locations Grouse Lodge in Moate, Republic of Ireland, and The Chapel in the countryside of East Lincolnshire the band lived and breathed the album while residing together in rural isolation. The album was mixed by Craig Silvey (Florence + the Machine, Arcade Fire).
We loved living in the same place, says 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.
The eleven-track album features the new single Longshot, which has amassed over 6 million global streams since its January 8 release, as well as the live fan-favorite Fluctuate. Fans will be able to hear these new songs live on the band’s upcoming U.S. headline tour which kicks off March 12 and will hit the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA on March 22 and Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on April 3. All tour dates along with the full album track listing can be found below. Tickets are available HERE.
In addition to the album name and familiar one-word song titles, the creative bridge between 2014’s platinum-certified debut, The Balcony and its gold-certified follow up, The Ride, has been reinforced by the band returning to San Francisco-based graphic artist Tim Lahan to provide cover artwork for a third time.
Practically of no fixed abode, Catfish and the Bottlemen have toured constantly since their formation, now over a decade ago. The past eighteen months have seen the band claim their place as a bona fide arena band at home, adding a sold-out UK arena tour in February 2019 to an impressive list of already conquered stages. Significantly, it also invited more quality time with global fans on tours to South America, Australia, Japan, and the United States, culminating in an electrifying main-stage performance at Lollapalooza in 2018. Long shot hints that the band’s rapid ascent to big hall players has crossed over to influence their time in the studio.

OLYMPICS x LIVE STREAM

The Winter Olympics in South Korea may be 14 time zones removed from the Eastern Time Zone of the US — but 43% of Americans say they plan to watch NBC’s live streaming content during the Games, with only 48% saying they did not have such plans.

A big chunk of the country — 63% — say they will watch at least some coverage of the Games, which begin Friday, February 8.  That is double those who said “no” (31%) to watching any coverage.

“That is a healthy number of people turning to devices other than television,” noted Rick Gentile, director of the poll, which is sponsored by the Sharkey Institute.   “You might call this the breakthrough year for streaming coverage making a big impact.”
