Catfish And The Bottlemen have released their first single in five years.

The rock group recorded their new single, '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 Van McCann's evolution as a songwriter, and is the first song off the band's much-anticipated new album.

'Showtime' has been teased online over recent days, and Catfish and the Bottlemen have now confirmed that details of their fourth studio album will be released soon.

Elsewhere, the band have announced plans to perform two headline shows during the summer of 2024.

Catfish and the Bottlemen will headline shows at Cardiff Castle on July 19, and Edinburgh Summer Sessions on August 24.

The band are also headlining the Reading and Leeds Festival main stage in 2024.

Tickets for the Edinburgh and Cardiff shows will go on general sale at 10am GMT on March 1.

Meanwhile, Van 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."
