Bombay Bicycle Club have announced the details of their highly anticipated fifth album, their first in five years.
On Tuesday afternoon, Bombay Bicycle Club premiered the video for their comeback single ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)’. Shortly afterwards the band revealed details of a UK and Ireland January tour, along with details of their fifth album.
The video pokes fun at the band’s “indefinite hiatus”, as frontman Jack Steadman tries to make new music on the grounds of an abandoned warehouse. While other members Jamie MacColl, Suren de Saram and Ed Nash feature, each appearing individually as they longingly stare at their own candle lit murals of the band together.
Check out the video, directed by Louis Bhose, below:
Bombay Bicycle Club revealed shortly after the video’s premiere details of their album that some thought would never come. Due out on January 17th, their fifth album is called Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.
The track list is yet to be revealed but will include the new single ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)’.
Speaking about what the album title means to him, frontman, Jack Steadman said:
”This is an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of need. It’s about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music.
“For me personally it’s about the frustration of not being able to express myself to others, of leaving conversations feeling dissatisfied and misunderstood. Music’s the way I’m able to truly express myself”
The ‘Always Like This’ band also announced that they’ll be hitting the road in January. They recently played their first Irish show in eight years, with a sold-out show in Cork’s Opera House.
Their tour includes a stop in Dublin at Vicar Street before heading to Belfast for a show at Ulster Hall. Joining them for both shows will be The Big Moon and Liz Lawrence.
Check out the dates below:
10th February – Vicar Street – Dublin
12th February – Ulster Hall – Belfast
