This March Bombay Bicycle Club ride south to play their very first Australian headline shows. Pulling up on our sunny shores for their debut tour, as special guests to fellow Brits, Elbow, Bombay Bicycle Club will play three headline club shows, in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.
Tickets go on sale at 9am, Wednesday February 1, with pre-sale tickets available from Friday January 27.
Barely teenagers when they formed seven years back in North London, Bombay Bicycle Club have been described as a young band in a hurry, releasing an album a year since their 2009 debut.
In the three years since their first release, Bombay Bicycle Club have built a fiercely loyal, tattooing-lyrics-on-their-arm kind of fanbase, that continues to grow by the day.
Just one year after forming the band famously won a competition that catapulted them onto the stage at the UKs V Festival in 2006, and in turn onto the world stage.
Despite tempting offers from several labels, the band decided to release their 2009 debut album, I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose, on their homegrown label, Mmm. The following year Bombay Bicycle Club won the Best New Band award at the NME Awards.
Bombay Bicycle Club released their sophomore album, Flaws, in 2010. The stripped back, folk-influenced release grazed the UK Top 10 and was nominated for an esteemed Ivor Novello Award.
Seemingly determined to never make the same album twice, their latest offering A Different Kind Of Fix (Universal Music), reveals another change in direction, challenging any preconceptions of the bands sound, and confirming their vitality, creativity and ear for a damn fine tune.
Bombay Bicycle Club are: frontman Jack Steadman, guitarist Jamie MacColl, bassist Ed Nash and drummer Suren de Saram.
