The band will embark on an extensive run of British dates in March
Bombay Bicycle Club have announced details of a UK tour to take place in March next year.
The band will play 14 gigs on the stretch, including a homecoming show at London’s Brixton Academy. Starting in Leeds on March 2, the tour will conclude on March 20 at Manchester’s Albert Hall.
The London band will release their fourth album in early 2014 and recently revealed new song ‘Carry Me’ from the album.
Tickets for all dates go on sale at 9am on Friday (November 15) morning. Speaking to NME recently, frontman Jack Steadman explained how exploring the globe helped him personally, as well as providing influence for new songs.
“I think the travelling gave me a sense of wellbeing rather than any direct musical influence,” Steadman says. “Also, we were getting more inspired by samples. They become the springboard for your song and, whether it’s an Indian song or something with Thai chanting, you should never deny that inspiration just because it sounds silly or because the thought of it is weird.”
