Bombay Bicycle Club have added a Cardiff date to their UK tour in support of their fifth album set for release in January 2020.
The band will play the University Student Union Great Hall on January 24. This follows the release of Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the British band’s acclaimed number 1 charting, Mercury Music Prize nominated fourth album, So Long, See You Tomorrow released back in 2014.
The new album was largely recorded out in the US alongside Grammy Award winning producer John Congleton. It features the band’s new single, Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You).
About the Everything Else Has Gone Wrong title, the band says:
“This is an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of crisis, whether personal or political. It’s about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music when everything else has gone wrong. It’s about finding kernels of hope and renewal in dire situations.”
Bombay Bicycle Club have continued to grow, develop and evolve since the release of their debut album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, back in 2009 when they signalled their arrival as young teenagers. Rarely in recent years has there been a British guitar band who have the craft and ability to avoid categorisation whilst uniting hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe. With an innate ear for melody and invention, the four-piece are a very welcome return to the fold just as British guitar music makes a timely renaissance.
The band will be supported at their forthcoming Cardiff show by The Big Moon and Liz Lawrence.
Lead vocalist, Jack Steadman says
“Playing together again is such an unexpected surprise for the four of us and yet from the first moment we started rehearsing it felt as natural as if we’d played a show the night before. We feel a freshness playing live and in the studio that I think can only come from having taken a step back and now we just want to play these new songs to as many people in as many countries as we can”
Tickets for the Cardiff date go on general sale from 10am on the 13th September via bombaybicycle.club
