Deemed eager, enthusiastic, and experimental, Bombay Bicycle Club return from their worldwide tour following the release of their most successful album to date, ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, performing in Manchester on the 7th and 8th of December at the Apollo.
Having as many studio album releases of a band twice their age, the twenty-something quartet have gained a prolific reputation since their conception in 2005 in a Crouch End high school. The band’s ride to success began with a V-Festival’s ‘Road to V’ victory. Nine years later and these North London boys are still going strong, having played Leeds, Reading, and Coral festival.
Bombay Bicycle Club have collected a barrage of attention over the years, being dubbed as copycats of bands like The Editors despite steadily climbing the charts and earning NME’s ‘Best New Band’ award in 2010, as well as a nomination for the Ivor Novello Award in 2011 for acoustic album ‘Flaws’.
Their newest album, ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, enlists the help of Grammy-award-winning Mark Rankin, also responsible for Bloc Party and AlunaGeorge’s albums. The combination of many styles into feel-good pop music won the band their first number 1 and a Mercury prize nomination, leaving Bombay Bicycle Club saddled with success.
