Toronto five-piece July Talk have been announced as main support for the Catfish And The Bottlemen’s sold-out UK tour this November.
Following the release of their critically acclaimed album Touch, July Talk have been chosen by Catfish And The Bottlemen to join them as sole support on their triumphant UK tour. The two bands will play nine shows across the country including three back-to-back shows at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse and a date at London’s SSE Wembley Arena on November 15th, for which additional tickets have now been made available.
July Talk released their stunning second album Touch last month throughout the rest of the world. It gets a full UK commercial release on November 4th via Caroline Records / Universal.
It includes the latest single ‘Beck + Call’ featuring Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq and lead single ‘Push + Pull’ which showcases the perfectly contrasting voices of co-vocalists Pete Dreimanis and Leah Fay and spent a month at number 1 on the Canadian Alternative Chart. Both tracks are accompanied by striking and beautiful videos.
July Talk are a phenomenal live band and played a number of dates across Europe and the UK in September including a truly astounding, sold-out performance at The Boston Music Room, London. They are currently on a major North American tour including selected dates supporting Nothing But Thieves.
Now about to make a massive splash on the UK music scene courtesy of Catfish And The Bottlemen, July Talk are one of the must-see bands of 2016, with one of the most exciting albums of the year to boot

“He’s gravel and whisky. She’s pinot noir and angel dust. Together, Peter Dreiamnis and Leah Fay are July Talk - sexy as hell and Canada’s emerging favourite…” - NPR
“July Talk come into their own with ‘Touch’ with intimidating confidence along with their authentic bluesy swagger… It is chock full of the band’s most expansive, vigorous material to date.” - Paste
“The album showcases the band’s multiple musical personalities while still delivering a singular vision. [It] pushes July Talk’s musical vision forward without sacrificing their core elements.”
“Danceable disco...noisey, ambient rock that takes nods at Bikini Kill, Nick Cave or even Arcade Fire.” - New Noise Magazine
“A strange kind of pop…that alternates between catchy and jarring… They have the certain ne sais quoi it takes to be goddamn massive, and my money’s on them headlining festivals across North America within the next five years.”- Consequence of Sound
