Bombay Bicycle Club add new tour date in Liverpool - O2 Academy

North London’s most prolific and underrated band, Bombay Bicycle Club, have announced their first major UK headline tour in two years. This news comes following an announcement revealing details of their fourth album due out on February 3rd 2014 through Island Records.  Due to demand a date at O2 Academy Liverpool has been added on Saturday 15th March.

The band are well known for their massive live following and critically acclaimed performances which have seen them play major slots at some of the biggest festivals across the world as well as some huge venues including Alexandra Palace last year which sold out (10,000 capacity) well in advance of the show.

The new album looks to break exciting new ground yet again for a band that are effortlessly diversifying and innovating at an astonishing rate. Frontman Jack Steadman wrote the record while travelling through India, Turkey and Tokyo as well as the UK and the Netherlands; you can really hear the influence of all the different cultures and their native genres among the beautifully crafted songs on this hugely ambitious record.

The album was produced by Jack in the band’s studio in London, making ittheir most personal record to date. There was always purpose from the beginning to bring everything together for this album, to tell a story from the first track through to the finale with everything interconnecting as a complete body of work. They called in Mark Rankin (in top form having recently mixed QOTSA ‘...Like Clockwork’ and AlunaGeorge ‘Body Music’) to help record and mix the album. The album also features familiar vocal contribution from Lucy Rose as well as impressive newcomer Rae Morris.
 
The first single from the new album, ‘Carry Me’, will be available to download on November 5th and is a monumental fists in the air dance anthem that is probably the band’s most daring, explosive and exciting departure yet from their previous work. The band collaborated with award-winning creative company Powster to deliver a world first interactive music video premiere on www.carryme.tv. Viewers are able to control the band’s actions throughout, essentially making them the director while the band perform in time to the music.

A snapshot of Bombay Bicycle Club’s history throws up even more unexpected revelations of a band who have quietly become one of the most successful young British bands of their generation. They released their first album ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose’ in 2008 and shortly afterwards won the NME New Band Award beating The XX and Mumford & Sons. They followed this up midway through 2010 with Flaws’, which was nominated for an Ivor Novello.  Their most recent album, ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’, was released in August 2011 and like its predecessors, went gold seeing the band’s fan base increase exponentially, culminating in various major main stage festival slots including the Reading and Leeds Festival.
