Bombay Bicycle Club's Jack Steadman has said that he and his bandmates find it hard to get on with other bands.

Speaking to NME, the singer said that he had enjoyed hanging out with Elbow, who they have been supporting on their Australian tour, as he was usually too socially awkward to mix with rock'n'roll's louder characters.

He said:

We don't usually get on with bands that well but we're really getting on well with Elbow. We're just really awkward people. We're just so bad at socializing. I think it always comes across as rude, but actually we just find it hard and are a bit stupid in that aspect. We never mean any harm.


He went on to add: "I think if you sit us down individually then we'd be fine and really engaging. But when we're together, as a group, it just falls apart."

The band are set to tour the UK in April and 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.

They will also 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.
