After a lengthy hiatus, Bombay Bicycle Club are back with their first new music since their highly-acclaimed 2014 album So Long, See You Tomorrow.
The break from the band found frontman Jack Steadman exploring the world and recording his side project, Mr Jukes, while bassist Ed Nash recorded an alt-pop project called Toothless with BBC drummer Suren de Saram. Meanwhile, guitarist Jamie MacColl earned a degree in War Studies at King’s College, made a documentary about protest music for the BBC, and launched a political initiative aimed at getting young people in the UK involved in Brexit negotiations.
Needless to say, the members of the band are each bringing a fresh perspective to the latest Bombay Bicycle Club record. The first taste of the new album “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)” dropped this fall, and they visited us to perform an acoustic version of the song, plus “Shuffle” from 2011’s A Different Kind Of Fix.
