Bombay Bicycle Club are back! Since dropping the dreaded “indefinite hiatus” statement at the start of 2016, the band have been off working on their own projects, but have now posted a statement and a new video, stating that they’re set to return in 2019!
“With a new year ahead of us, we thought now would be a good moment to give you a bit of news about what the four of us have been up to recently and what we have planned,” they write on their official website, along with a new video that features what we assume to be new music.
“Since late last year we’ve been getting back into the swing of playing music together. We were initially a little rusty but also nostalgic playing songs that have been around since we were teenagers. More than anything it just felt great to be in the same room playing again. It made us realise what a good thing we have and has given us renewed energy and enthusiasm for the future.
“The joy we were getting out of playing the old songs seemed to naturally lead us onto working on new material, so we’re becoming immersed in that as we speak. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we have something new for you guys to hear.We’re also planning some shows for later this year and beyond. We’ll have news on that front over the coming months.
Can’t wait to see you all. We’ve missed you.
Jack, Ed, Jamie, Suren x”
