Bombay Bicycle Club are very pleased to share a new single, their first new music since 2014’s number one selling, Mercury Music Prize nominated fourth album, “So Long, See You Tomorrow”.

The pulsating, euphoric ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)’ is streaming now. It encapsulates all the ingredients that made this exciting British band so popular before heading on an extended hiatus having sold out a triumphant London Earls Court show back in 2014. Recorded at London’s KONK Studio with producer John Congleton, it’s a song heavy of both melody and rhythm, and acts as a tantalising re-introduction to Bombay Bicycle Club whilst they work on a new full-length record. Further details of that will be announced soon.

It’s been an exciting and very encouraging return for the band so far:  their January video teaser announcing they were working on new music sparked an online frenzy that found their name trending on social media. That was followed by the news that the band would make their live return with a headline set at Wilderness Festival, and a New York show for September which sold so rapidly that they built a full US tour around it. Then earlier this summer, Bombay Bicycle Club commemorated the 10th anniversary of their frenetic debut album, “I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose” by announcing a handful of shows, all of which sold out in seconds, including a night at London’s Brixton Academy 8 November.

A very welcome return then, for a band who have not lost their innate ear for melody nor their ability to make interesting, inventive guitar-led pop music sound so effortless and exciting.
