After a two year long break, Bombay Bicycle Club announces plans for new music and shows.
Bombay Bicycle Club’s seemingly indefinite hiatus has come to a close after nearly two years.
In January 2016, the indie-rock band from Crouch End, London, announced that they had no plans to create new music and instead intended to pursue solo projects. “After ten years of doing this we thought it was time for all of us to try something else,” the band said at the time.
But in an update posted to their website and various social media accounts today, the four-member band announced that they are back to working on new content, with show dates on the horizon for 2019.
A time-lapse video of the band playing together features the caption, "Some exciting news from us."
Posted alongside the video is their statement, reading,“Since late last year we’ve been getting back into the swing of playing music together.”
“More than anything it just felt great to be in the same room playing again. It made us realise what a good thing we have and has given us renewed energy and enthusiasm for the future. The joy we were getting out of playing the old songs seemed to naturally lead us onto working on new material, so we’re becoming immersed in that as we speak. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we have something new for you guys to hear.”
Bombay Bicycle Club last toured in Ireland in 2013, in anticipation for their fourth and most recent album, So Long, See You Tomorrow.
