Bombay Bicycle Club are back working on new music, with live shows to come too

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced they’re back and working on new music.

The band went on hiatus in 2016 to work on their own solo projects: bassist Ed Nash released ‘The Pace of the Passing’ under his Toothless moniker, and frontman Jack Steadman dropped ‘God First’ as Mr Jukes.

Before then, they’d four albums: 2009’s ‘I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose’, 2010’s ‘Flaws’, 2011’s ‘A Different Kind of Fix’, and 2014’s ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’.

Posting an update on their website this afternoon (Monday 14th January), they reveal:

“With a new year ahead of us, we thought now would be a good moment to give you a bit of news about what the four of us have been up to recently and what we have planned.

“Since late last year we’ve been getting back into the swing of playing music together. We were initially a little rusty but also nostalgic playing songs that have been around since we were teenagers. More than anything it just felt great to be in the same room playing again. It made us realise what a good thing we have and has given us renewed energy and enthusiasm for the future.

“The joy we were getting out of playing the old songs seemed to naturally lead us onto working on new material, so we’re becoming immersed in that as we speak. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we have something new for you guys to hear. We’re also planning some shows for later this year and beyond. We’ll have news on that front over the coming months.

“Can’t wait to see you all. We’ve missed you.”

Kim Petras is a banger machine. ‘Do Me’, ‘Heart To Break’, ‘Feeling of Falling’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ - it’s just pop hit after pop hit. "I feel real confidence now," she explains, "and that’s really amazing."
