Catfish and the Bottlemen announce 2 London shows

Catfish and the Bottlemen have announced 2 London shows at the Electric Ballroom in Camden.

The two shows are set to happen on May 23rd and 25th, ahead of the release of their second album, The Ride, due out on May 27th. Tickets will cost £20 + booking fees and will be available for ballot winners only - meaning you can book a maximum of two tickets, if successful.

Their decision to run a ballot is due to the band's frustration of touts and their fans not being able to get tickets, which became immediately clear when announcing their returning shows earlier this year. Sign up for the ballot opens today (April 22nd) at 3pm and closes at 3pm on Monday, with winners soon being contacted by email. You can register here.

Those who are successful will have their names printed on the tickets and will be required to show ID on the doors at the gig.

Catfish and the Bottlemen recently revealed their second single from The Ride as 7, which they previewed on their last major tour in 2015. You can listen to that single on all major digital platforms, and here
