Bombay Bicycle Club Announce New Album, Release “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)” Video

This is not a drill: Bombay Bicycle Club are back after a three-year official hiatus. Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, their first release as a group since 2014’s So Long, See You Tomorrow, is set for release on Jan. 17, 2020, via Caroline International/Island Records.

The band took to Twitter Tuesday to release a statement announcing the album, detailing their upcoming U.K. tour and explaining the John Congleton-produced project’s title. “This is an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of crisis, whether personal or political,” they shared. “It’s about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music when everything else in your life or the world has gone wrong.”

Bombay Bicycle Club also announced a new slate of tour dates in January and February to coincide with the release of the album. Fans who preorder Everything Else Has Gone Wrong at their official store by Sept. 10 will receive access to the tour pre-sale on Sept. 11. The standard fan pre-sale begins Sept. 12, and general on-sale begins Sept. 13. These 2020 dates follow a U.S. tour from Sept. 25 to Oct. 8, and a five-date U.K. run celebrating the 10-year anniversary of I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose in November.

Along with the album and tour announcements, the band has released a playful music video for lead single “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You).” The song might sound like frontman Jack Steadman can’t get an ex off his mind, but it’s really thoughts of playing with the band that are haunting him and giving him no peace. The new video by their former touring keyboardist, Louis Bhose, who is now a sought-out director, begins with a lament for the troubled times of Bombay Bicycle Club’s hiatus. “Without their music,” it reads, “British society crumbled,” and it seems the band’s members didn’t fare too well, either. A pining Steadman, utterly isolated in drab industrial settings or abandoned countryside, tries desperately to hack making music on his own—only to find that his former bandmates are suffering, too. They’re all gazing at their creepy, candlelit shrines to their bandmates in their prime and tenderly stroking one another’s faces on their Bombay Bicycle Club wall posters. Lucky for us, because “Eat, Sleep, Wake” is a welcome return from a group that’s been greatly missed.
