Today, Mercury Prize-nominated and UK chart-topping indie quartet Bombay Bicycle Club announce North American tour dates in support of Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, their first new album in 6 years. The headlining run includes dates in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver and will feature support from Sports Team. Everything Else Has Gone Wrong will be released via Caroline International/Island Records on January 17.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 10 at 10am local time.
Watch the lyric video for new single “I Can Hardly Speak,” which Brooklyn Vegan deems as “an instantly appealing dose of lightly psychedelic indie pop.”
Everything Else Has Gone Wrong was recorded with Grammy-winning producer John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Spoon, St. Vincent), and recaptures the magic of the band’s earlier releases. Uncut says, “The London quartet sound rejuvenated … a reminder of how far they’ve advanced since their early badge as adolescent indie rockers.” Paste Magazine just named the new album one of their Most Anticipated Albums of 2020, while DIY Magazine says it “taps into their strongest asset — the ability to break your heart and heal it in the time it takes to move from verse to chorus.”
“Stunning” (Billboard) lead single “Eat, Sleep, Wake” has racked up over 10 million Spotify streams and has been praised for its “invigorating hooks and wistful attitude” (Pitchfork) as well as “immediately feeling like classic BBC” (Dork). Listen here: https://youtu.be/zFb86yrodxE
Watch Bombay Bicycle Club perform the album’s title track, “Everything Else Has Gone Wrong,” for a special VEVO session you can watch below.
Bombay Bicycle Club welcomes the new album’s release with a full tour of the UK later this January and into February. The run includes two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, with many of those shows long since selling out and with only a handful of tickets left at the remaining dates. Following the North American tour, a busy Summer festival season almost is inevitable.
