Bombay Bicycle Club said that they believe their gig later this year at London's Alexandra Palace as "hugely significant".

The band, who tour the UK in April, will end the 11-date run at London's Alexandra Palace on April 28, which will be their biggest ever headline show. The gig has now sold out completely.

Speaking after discovering that his band had sold out the show, guitarist Jamie MacColl told NME: "The gig at Ally Pally is hugely significant for us. I grew up a stone's throw away from there and I can see it now as I look out my bedroom window. The band first started playing together at my house and we'd often convene there before going to gigs at Ally Pally. In addition to its sentimental importance it's the fact it's also the biggest headline gig of our lives. It's a potent combination and we'll be trying to put on an amazing show."

The band will release 'How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep', their latest single from their third album 'A Different Kind Of Fix' on April 9. To watch the video for the track, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click.

Bombay Bicycle Club are confirmed for a series of summer festivals, including Beniccasim and BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend in east London.
