Bombay Bicycle Club are excited to share a new EP of rare, early demo recordings in celebration of ten years since the release of their debut album, ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose’.
To coincide with the album’s tenth birthday, the seven track EP ‘Demos 2004-2008’ is streaming now (released via Mmm… Records / Caroline Australia), and features material that didn’t originally make the cut for the album. Delving deep into the vaults of archive material, only one of the tracks, ‘Ode To Lucy’, will already be familiar to long-standing fans having featured in a BBC Radio 1 live session back in 2009 on Zane Lowe’s show, whilst some snippets of other EP tracks will be familiar as assorted parts of other songs that did feature on the original record. It’s an intriguing glimpse of the band finding their feet in their infancy, and signals another timely step in their return to the spotlight after a lengthy period of inactivity.
In further celebration of those ten years, Bombay Bicycle Club will hit the road in November to bring ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose!’ to UK stages in full for five shows.
Earlier this year, the British four-piece signalled their return to the studio following a four year hiatus with a message to their fans on social media, and announced a slew of live dates.
