Catfish and the Bottlemen return with a new album 'The Ride' which features 11 tracks written by frontman Van McCann and produced by Dave Sardy (Noel Gallagher, Ok Go, Wolfmother) having been recorded mainly in Los Angeles. Dave Sardy's production adds texture, detail and crucially, some darkness to Catfish. There's a sinister throb to jealous-ex anthem 'Red', while acoustic ballad 'Heathrow' introduces appealing vulnerability to McCann's emotional palette. The best track is 'Outside', a song of alienation full of climbs, dizzying drops and a chorus given a thrilling undertow by a descending guitar figure.CD - Standard Jewel Case. LP - 180 Gram Vinyl Housed in Gatefold Sleeve.
