DANCING on Tables are set to play their biggest shows to date after being revealed as support for Catfish and the Bottlemen.

The Dunfermline band were dancing in the streets of Liverpool as news came through that they'll be sharing the stage with one of the UK's biggest bands.

They will warm-up the crowd in Aberdeen tonight (Thursday) at the P&J Live arena before performing at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Friday evening.

"It's absolutely mental," the hometown act's Robbie McSkimming told the Press.

"None of us were expecting it at all.

"We got a message on Twitter from their tour manager about an hour before a gig on Saturday night asking if we wanted to do these shows.

"Hand on heart, we thought either it was a joke or the account had been hacked and they'd been messaging random bands as a laugh.

"The first message just asked us if we were free on those dates, not actually specifying what for. We put two and two together, checked what venues Catfish were playing and just hoped it was what we were hoping it was for.

"We obviously said yes but we didn't get a reply for a couple of hours. So we went and played the gig and had this at the back of our minds the whole time.

"We came off stage and our manager Neall (Johnston) told us the good news outside. We were jumping around in disbelief.

"This is our chance to take it to the next level and really push on.

"We don't actually know why we were chosen but we must be doing something right.

"It was completely out of the blue and that's why we really thought it was a wind-up."

It's been a phenomenal few years for the Dunfermline Press Live Music Award winners of 2016.

They signed on the dotted line with LV Music in late 2017, and their music has featured on TV shows and advertising campaigns.

This year kicked off with a sold-out show at King Tut's in Glasgow, and Robbie added that the Catfish gigs and their PJ Molloys Christmas headliner was the perfect way to end 2019.

"To be supporting one of the biggest bands in the UK at the Hydro is difficult to comprehend and put into words," Robbie remarked.

"It's exciting and means a lot to us and all the people who have believed in us.

"It's a brilliant way for us to end the year. We were excited for the PJs show regardless but now we have Catfish as well.

"I think between both the Aberdeen and Glasgow venues, the capacity is around 28,000, so we have a lot of people to impress.

"We can't wait and we're going to put on a great show for everyone at both gigs."
