After winning Best New Band at the NME Awards last month, Bombay Bicycle Club have sold out their biggest headline date in London â€“ 2300 capacity – in less than a week, and announced two more shows in the UK to meet demand.
Bombay release one of the stand out tracks from their recent live dates, ‘Evening/Morningâ€™ this week. The single will be a super limited edition 7â€ (only 400 copies) with the band doing the artwork for each one of the copies individually.
Additionally, the band is putting the finishing touches on a brand new acoustic album which they aim to release later this year. Singer, Jack Steadmanâ€™s love of Appalachian music coupled with the folk heritage of guitarist Jamie MacColl (son of Neill and grandson of Ewan) has given these new tracks a distinct acoustic feel, as heard on the bandâ€™s recent cover of Loudon Wainwright IIIâ€™s â€˜Motel Bluesâ€™.
The critically acclaimed debut album â€˜I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Looseâ€™ is out now.
