Following a stellar set at All Together Now, the English indie-rockers return to Ireland for two shows in February 2020.
After releasing their first new single in five years last week, Bombay Bicycle Club are officially back, with their highly anticipated fifth album, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, due out on January 17. The record, set to be released through Caroline International/Island Records, follows 2014's chart-topping, Mercury Prize-nominated So Long, See You Tomorrow.
To coincide with the announcement, Bombay Bicycle Club have also shared news of a 13-date headline tour of the UK and Ireland. With The Big Moon and Liz Lawrence as support acts, the English indie-rockers play Dublin's Vicar Street on February 10 and Belfast's Ulster Hall on February 12.
Since announcing their return after their five-year hiatus, the band having been keeping themselves busy with several high profile live appearances on both sides of the Atlantic. In August, they played their first Irish shows in six years, with impressive performances at both the Cork Opera House and All Together Now in August.
Everything Else Has Gone Wrong was recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent/Sharon Van Etten/War on Drugs), and features the band’s last single, 'Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)'.
"This is an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of crisis, whether personal or political," the band revealed in a statement about the release. "It’s about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music when everything else has gone wrong. It’s about finding kernels of hope and renewal in dire situations.”
Early access presale tickets for the upcoming tour are available to those who pre-order the album by 5pm on September 10, while general sale is from 10am on September 13.
