Bombay Bicycle Club Announce Festival Warm Up Show
Ahead of summer festival appearances, Bombay Bicycle Club have announced a very special festival warm up show at Liverpool’s Guild Of Students on July 15th.
Following a prolific 2014, Bombay Bicycle Club were recently nominated for the album award for their fourth LP ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’ at the 60th anniversary Ivor Novello Awards which celebrate, honour and reward excellence in British and Irish song writing and composing.
Regarded as one Britain’s biggest breakthrough bands Bombay Bicycle Club’s critically acclaimed fourth album captured the results of singer Jack Steadman’s picaresque adventures in the likes of Turkey and India throughout 2013. Joyously escapist, its electronic-inflected and Bollywood-referencing sound made good on the Eastern promise. The album also secured them their first UK number one and netted them a Barclaycard Mercury Prize nomination.
Live, the band had their busiest ever year in 2014 with a string of international festival appearances including Glastonbury where they delighted tens of thousands of fans with a stunning performance on the Other Stage. It saw one of the biggest crowds of the festival outside of the Pyramid Stage as well as a secret set on the Radio 1 Introducing Stage (that had to be closed due to overcrowding!) They headlined the R1/NME stage at Reading/Leeds and entertained the masses at Latitude, Fuji Rocks and Lollapalooza to name but a few. They have a healthy, ever-growing following in continental Europe and the US, too, with all of their dates having sold out. 2014 ended with the band selling out their first ever UK arena date at London’s final ever Earls Court show.
Bombay Bicycle Club’s Liverpool show precedes festival appearances at Super Bock Super Rock Festival in Lisbon, Portugal on July 17th, Citadel Festival London on July 19th and Somersault Festival, Devon on July 25th.
