Bombay Bicycle Club are set to play their debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose in full in an exclusive livestream next month.
The gig comes as the band prepare to release a new live album on December 11, recorded at their Brixton Academy gig last year where they played the 2009 debut in its entirety.
For the livestream, Bombay Bicycle Club will return to London’s Konk Studios on December 15, where they recorded the debut album in 2008 and 2009. Fans who have pre-ordered the live album will be granted admission to the show, or can purchase a separate ticket to the show for £5.50.
“We’re looking forward to revisiting this album in a special one-off performance and then we’re entirely focused on new music which we hope to get to you next year,” the band said of the upcoming show.
Speaking of the show which is the setting for the new live album, the band said: “This tour finished on a Friday night at Brixton Academy in London, and we took the decision to record the show that evening. This was a particularly special night for us in any case – seriously a show that we’ll all remember forever – and especially considering what’s happened since, we’re grateful we have a memory like this to keep us all going until live music can resume.”
Bombay Bicycle Club released their comeback album Everything Else Has Gone Wrong at the start of the year, which attracted acclaim. The NME said, “Everything else may have gone wrong – but in amongst the chaos it sure is good to have Bombay Bicycle Club back.”
Speaking to NME about the album, the band’s Jamie MacColl said that “to all intents and purposes, we had broken up” after their 2014 album So Long, See You Tomorrow.
