New Release & London Show: Bombay Bicycle Club – Is It Real

Ahead of the release of their highly-anticipated new album Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, Bombay Bicycle Club have unveiled their latest single, ‘Is It Real’.

About the new release, the band state: ‘We wanted to share one last song before the album comes out this Friday. Enjoy ‘Is It Real’, a song about taking a trip down memory lane, reminiscing about the old times and cherished memories, and wondering when sat next to the responsibilities and struggles of adult life, how any of those fondly remembered days were real.’

Take a listen below…

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 new record was largely written in Cornwall and recorded out in the US alongside Grammy Award winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent/Sharon Van Etten/War on Drugs).

Following a series of jubilant sell out dates in celebration of ten years of debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, Bombay Bicycle Club welcome the new album’s release with a full tour of the UK in January/February.
