Catfish And The Bottlemen have announced their first concert in Ireland in five years.

Hot off the heels of the news of their biggest show to date in Liverpool, which will see the indie rockers play to around 32,000 fans on July 11, as part of the In The Park Festival at the city's Sefton Park, the 'Longshot' rockers have set a date at Dublin’s RDS Simmonscourt on August 31.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am BST on May 10, via www.ticketmaster.ie, where details of a pre-sale on May 8 can be found.

The 'Encore' group also have massive open air concerts coming up in Cardiff and Edinburgh.

In February, the BRIT Award-winning group returned with their first single in five years.

The rock group recorded 'Showtime' in Los Angeles with award-winning producer Dave Sardy, who has previously worked with the likes of Oasis and the Rolling Stones.

The track reflects frontman Van McCann's evolution as a songwriter and is the first song off the band's much-anticipated new album.

Meanwhile, the rocker previously admitted to being hugely ambitious as a performer.

The songwriter also revealed that he'd been inspired by Oasis during his younger years.

The 31-year-old singer told the Guardian newspaper: "I want us to play stadiums. Not just arenas, but stadiums.

"If you’re in a band and you don’t want that it’s like saying you’re happy sitting on the bench at Liverpool. If I was gonna be a bin man, I’d make sure I was the best. You’re here one day and gone the next, so why not want to play in football stadiums?

"I remember going to see Oasis at Heaton Park when I was a kid and no matter where you were in Manchester, the vibe was Oasis. It was like a magnet had been dropped in the centre of the city and was drawing everyone in. That’s what I want happening with us."
