Catfish Rising is the 18th studio album by the British rock group Jethro Tull, released in 1991. It is the first Tull album to feature keyboardist Andrew Giddings. The album forgoes the synthesizers and electronic instruments that were prominent in Tull's 80's albums, instead opting for a hard rock and blues sound.
