CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN: indie rock band returns to Italy in February

Not even a year after their first time in Italy on 16 May 2019, the Catfish and the Bottlemen will play Wednesday 5 February 2020 at Alcatraz in Milan. I tickets will be available from 10 a.m. on Friday 11 October 2019 on circuits VivaticketTicketmaster e Ticketone (online and point of sale).

Fans who were not present at the last concert will therefore have a new opportunity to hear live The Balancethe third album by the Catfish and the Bottlemenreleased by Island Records the 26 April 2019. To make this record, the band enlisted the help of producer Jacknife Lee and lived in a kind of seclusion in the countryside of Ireland and East Lincolnshire, England. In this regard McCann stated: "We all loved living together. We spent all our time there, waking up and working until night. Jacknife was the first one up and the last one to go to bed. It's nice to be completely absorbed in recording in a place like that and living together, because we spent whole days talking about the songs. They were the most fun recording sessions we ever had". The disc, which contains the singles LongshotFluctuate,  2all e Conversation, the album follows The Rideaward-winning golden disc and the debut The Balconywhich went platinum. The three records are linked together thanks to the contribution of the San Francisco artist Tim Lahancommissioned for the third time to design the cover image, and thanks to the immediacy of the Catfish and the Bottleman that characterises all their work, proving that being simple is neither a disgrace nor the easiest path to take.

I Catfish and the Bottlemen are Van McCann (vocals and guitar), Johnny Bond (guitar), Robert "Bob" Hall (drums) and Benji Blakeway (bass). With their unmistakable sound, the group alternative rock is preparing to return to Italy, having sold millions of albums, conquering stages all over the world since its inception, from the Wembley arena to the United States, from Australia to Japan.

Virgin Radio is the official radio station for the concert.
