Catfish and the Bottlemen’s Van McCann Offered to Write Songs for Haim

"I was talking about writing songs with [bassist] Este [Haim]," McCann tells NME. "Haim are writing their second album, so I told her: 'I've just done mine, so you can have one of my spare middle-eights if you want. If you ever need a middle-eight, I'm your man.'"

Catfish and the Bottlemen's debut album, The Balcony, was released in September in the band's native U.K. The album will get a U.S. release on January 6.

"I'd love to write for other people," McCann continues. "If someone wants one of my songs, they're welcome, especially if it means I can take my dad out for a nice steak every night of his life from the royalties. But I don't want to associate our band with anyone else. I'd write a song for someone else partly because I'll say yes to anything that sounds like a laugh."

McCann and company will bring the sounds of The Balcony across North America starting February 8 in San Diego, California. The trek will last through a March 15 stop in Atlanta, Georgia.

HAIM, meanwhile, was just nominated for Best New Artist for the 2015 Grammys.
