Having finished touring for second album Day Bombs, released in 2013, the Fiiish embarked on a road trip to Ireland, and unsuspectingly rescued Mister Matt McGuinness during one fateful stop in Stab City. In return, he would guide the Fishmobile through potholes towards Caherdaniel, where the band, instead of resting, would write third album Swimming with Piranhas with McGuinness as the new JFF bassist.
And so the theatrical beast returns. Unlike its recorded-in-garages predecessor, Swimming with Piranhas was recorded at Air-Edel Studio in London, mastered by Tim Young (Massive Attack, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Elbow, and The Beatles ‘Love’ Album, for which he won a Grammy Award), and injects hooks, fuzz, funk and…S P A C E…into the Fish Tank. The craziness that was there since the beginning – yes, that remains!
Third time lucky and finally succumbing to the pun, Swimming with Piranhas is to be scheduled for a release in Summer 2015.
