Bombay Bicycle Club

Story by Jack Foley

BOMBAY Bicycle Club have announced details of their fifth album, set for release in January 2020, as well as a huge UK tour.

Everything Else Has Gone Wrong will be released on January 17, 2020, through Caroline International/Island Records. It is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the British band’s acclaimed number 1 charting, Mercury Music Prize nominated fourth album, So Long, See You Tomorrow released back in 2014.

The new album was largely recorded out in the US alongside Grammy Award winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent/Sharon Van Etten/War on Drugs). It features the band’s euphoric new single, Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You).

To coincide with the new album’s announcement, Bombay Bicycle Club have also confirmed a 13-date UK and Ireland headline tour, which immediately follows its release. Support comes from The Big Moon and Liz Lawrence.

Jack, from the band, explained: “Playing together again is such an unexpected surprise for the four 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 and in the studio that I think 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.”

The shows kick off on January 20, 2020, at Cambridge Corn Exchange and wrap up at Ulster Hall in Belfast in February. The run includes a show at London’s Alexandra Palace on February 7.

Early-access pre-sale tickets are available to those who pre-order the album by 5pm on September 10 and the shows go on general sale from 10am on September 13 here.

As previously announced, Bombay Bicycle Club will follow their recent live return at Wilderness Festival with a tour of the US in September and October, ahead of a handful of UK shows to celebrate 10 years of their debut album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose. These shows, including a return to Brixton Academy, sold out in seconds.
