Who else is feeling old right now? Today (3rd July), marks the 10 year anniversary since Bombay Bicycle Club cemented themselves as indie darlings with their debut album ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose!’ And to make us all feel slightly less awful about the fact that we’re all a decade - A DECADE! - older, the band are celebrating today with some very special announcements.
Sharing a brand new EP of early demos, the seven track record - titled “Demos 2004-2008” - features songs that originally didn’t make the cut and takes us through the Bombay archives to show us what the guys were like back in the early days.
They’re also taking ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose!’ back out on the road, announcing a string of November dates where they’ll make our indie dreams come true and play the debut in full. Tickets will go on sale here this Friday (5th July) at 10am, and they’ll be joined on the road by Gengahr.

04 - Eventim Apollo, Liverpool
05 – Caird Hall, Dundee
