The Balcony (10 Year Anniversary): 7" Singles Boxset


Release date: 13 September, 2024

Debut and breakthrough record The Balcony has become a career-defining album for Catfish and the Bottlemen, with Double Platinum status and  9 BPI Certified Singles including ‘Cocoon’ and ‘Kathleen’, it was originally released through Communion/Island Records on 15th September 2014. Written by Van McCann and produced by Jim Abbiss, the collection of songs on this album showcase McCann’s talent for posing everyday, easily identifiable observations through his lyrics. The album’s success and the many sold-out shows resulted in a Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act.

In celebration of the 10 Year Anniversary and after their biggest headline shows to date this Summer, The Balcony will be released as a limited edition 7” boxset which mirrors the highly sought after and sold out series of 7” singles that were released around the album’s original release. This boxset features the full album (singles audio in album version), plus ‘Hourglass’ (Ewan McGregor version) and rare bonus track ‘ASA’, available on a 7” again for the first time after the original pressing 10 years ago. This boxset will be numbered and limited to 2,000 copies worldwide.
