I’ll be seeing these guys as the open for Green Day tonight! They’re from the U.K. originating in Wales actually. Last year they won the Brit Award for best British Breakthrough. Catfish and the Bottlemen were founded in April 2007, when Ryan Evan “Van” McCann and Billy Bibby began playing guitar together at Billy’s parents home, a bed & breakfast in Llandudno, Wales. They promoted themselves by by playing in parking lots outside other artist’s gigs, including bands such as Kasabian.
Have a great Monday! ~Phil
