Bombay Bicycle Club fans, rejoice! After a five year hiatus, and the teasing of a new track last week, the four-piece have today announced news of a brand new album and tour.
Titled Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, the new record is due for release on January 17th 2020.
In a statement about the album, the band have shared: ‘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 in your life or the world has gone wrong. It’s about kernals of hope and renewal in dire situations.’
The band have also unveiled the video for their new track, unveiled last week. The visuals for ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You) were directed by long-time collaborator Louis Bhose, with whom they have worked with in a variety of ways for over ten years.

Finally, Bombay Bicycle Club have announced a UK & Ireland headline tour for 2020, where they will be joined by the wonderful Liz Lawrence and The Big Moon. Talking about touring again, the guys have said: ‘Playing together again is such an unexpected surprise for the 4 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 that 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’.
