Bombay Bicycle Club go to church
After concluding the NME tour in style and being crowned “Best New Band” at the NME awards, Bombay Bicycle Club have been putting the finishing touches on a brand new acoustic album which will be released on July 11th.
Full details of the yet to be titled album will be announced shortly, but the band has confirmed a full acoustic UK tour to tie in with the LP, in churches and arts centres up and down the country.
Singer, Jack Steadman’s love of Appalachian music coupled with the folk heritage of guitarist Jamie MacColl (son of Neill and grandson of Ewan) has given these new tracks a distinct acoustic feel, as heard on the band’s recent cover of Loudon Wainwright III’s ‘Motel Blues’ and spell-binding b-side ‘Jewel’.
“We are going on a tour of some beautiful venues which don't smell of piss and serve piss for beer, so you should come and enjoy that”- Bombay Bicycle Club
