‘Catfish can only consolidate their place at the very top of the Blues-Rock scene with this impressive album’ Blues in Britain Magazine, May 2019

‘The strong buzz that has been going around about this new album and proclaiming Catfish as one of the hottest bands of the decade aren’t wrong: the writing, playing and sheer balls-out power of this band is remarkable… …It is such a joy to hear a relatively new band who are as talented and as convincing as Catfish.’ Andy Snipper,

‘With their 3rd studio album, these Catfish assure themselves of a place in the British rock firmament.’, Holland

‘This is another brilliant album by the band and I’m sure it wont be long before Burning Bridges will also be mentioned at the awards ceremonies.’ Dave Martin, Jace Media

‘A veritable feast of powerful, sensitive, rocky, soulful and lyrically mature songs that are an assault on one’s musical senses in a great way…This is an album that says confidently and clearly that Catfish are not just another Blues/Rock outfit joining the party. They are a band committed to great songs, thoughtful lyrics, first-rate musicianship. This album is, for me, a bold statement about the band’s intention to not compromise when it comes to providing the listener with an album that cuts no corners. Keith Baldwin,

‘Catfish exudes quality and phenomenal how a young guitarist can play the blues like this.’
