Bombay Bicycle Club bring ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’ to Reading Festival

Plus band reveal celebratory plans for new album launch

Bombay Bicycle Club brought their new album ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’ to Reading Festival this evening (August 27), as the band count down the minutes until its official release date.

The London four-piece played three tracks – ‘Bad Timing’, ‘Lights Out, Words Gone’ and ‘Shuffle’ – from the album to a packed-out NME/Radio 1 tent, with the album set to come out on Monday.

They were backed by a horn section plus guest singer Lucy Rose and, following the performance, frontman Jack Steadman told NME how amazed he was by the crowd response. “After the gig I couldn’t hear anything because the crowd were clapping so loud, it was crazy,” he laughed.

He also revealed their celebration plans ahead of the album’s release, saying: “This record is the album I’m most proud of. Tomorrow [at Leeds Festival] after the set we’re going to be celebrating at midnight.”

Bombay Bicycle Club played:

‘Bad Timing’
‘Dust On The Ground’
‘Lights Out, Words Gone’
‘Ivy And Gold’
‘Cancel On Me’
‘Your Eyes’
