Bombay Bicycle Club announce May gig at Fonda Theatre

UK indie rock favorites Bombay Bicycle Club are back in LA with a May gig at the Fonda Theatre!

It’s been six years, but the quartet drop their first full-length album in six years next Friday, January 17 with the release of Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, via mmm… Records. They’ll be touring through North America in support of the record from April to early May, and that includes a show at the Fonda Theatre on Wednesday, May 6 is .

We caught the band late last year at the Mayan Theatre, their first proper LA gig in five years. They seem fully rejuvenated and the new songs sounded incredible live. I’m a little bummed we won’t seem them at Coachella 2020 — I got to see them my first time in Indio in 2014 — but this makes up for it.

The new album was produced by the GRAMMY-winning John Congleton, who has worked with the likes of St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, and Spoon among others. The lead single “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)” is a banger worth checking out below.

Why the lengthy hiatus? Well lead singer Jack Steadman did his own thing for a bit — including the awesome funk and sample-heavy side-project Mr. Jukes (which I recommend checking out). The break from the band seems to have been a good thing, because this new stuff comes across as really fresh.

You can catch a full list of their North American tour dates below. Tickets to see them at the Fonda Theatre on Wednesday, May 6 go on sale Friday, January 10 at 10 AM Pacific Time and cost $39.50.
