Van McCan and co with headline a second night at the iconic London venue.

Catfish & The Bottlemen have added a second Brixton Academy date. They'll now play Brixton on Friday 6th November and Saturday 7th November.

Speaking to Matt Dyson, Van McCann revealed that playing the London venue at Radio X's Winter Wonderland proved to the band they were ready for their biggest ever show.

Van said: "When we played it for you guys, we were like: oh man we want to do this. How do we get to this stage?

"Because we want the world. We want arenas, we want stadiums...I can't wait to play it, we're going to blow the roof off.

And now it's been confirmed that they'll play the legendary venue on 6 November, with tickets available from today.

The charismatic singer says it's a huge achievement for the band and a chance to reflect on how far they've come.

He said: "Bands that got to this stage, to us they were massive. They were our heroes.

"So for us to be doing that? I'm just dead dead proud...I go onstage every night and I say thank you a hundred times but I still can't thank them enough.

"People have dragged us out of nowhere!"

Pre-sale tickets for the show go on sale at 9am today through the band's website, with the general sale opening up at 9am on Friday.
