“Everything Else Has Gone Wrong” was the last song to be written for Bombay Bicycle Club's fifth album, and it makes perfect sense that it gives the record its name. "It seemed to encapsulate everything the album is about," says singer/guitarist Jack Steadman. Like the album, the song is about hope and renewal, about finding safety in what brings you comfort, in what you love the most, while all around is crumbling. "Keep the stereo on, everything else has gone wrong," the chorus declares. "For my whole life, I haven't been very good at expressing myself with words," Steadman says. "The irony is that the song is about not wanting to write lyrics, but it has lyrics I'm really proud of. And after that, we realised a lot of the other songs had that theme, of music as a cathartic refuge." The driving, insistent beat builds to a middle eight that could sum up the story of the band's last five years: "I guess I've found my peace again, and yes, I've found my second wind..."
The record was largely written in Cornwall and recorded in Los Angeles alongside GRAMMY Award-winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent/Sharon Van Etten/War on Drugs). It features the band’s “stunning” (Billboard) returning single, “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You).” It’s already amassed over 7 million streams on Spotify, watch the video here: https://youtu.be/zFb86yrodxE
Bombay Bicycle Club have continued to grow, develop and evolve since the release of their debut album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, back in 2009 when they signaled their arrival as young teenagers. Rarely in recent years has there been a British guitar band who have the craft and ability to avoid categorization whilst uniting hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe. With an innate ear for melody and invention, the four-piece are a very welcome return to the fold just as British guitar music makes a timely renaissance.
Following a series of jubilant sell out dates in celebration of ten years of debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, Bombay Bicycle Club welcome the new album’s release with a full tour of the UK in January/February. The shows kick off on January 20 at Cambridge Corn Exchange and wrap up at Ulster Hall in Belfast on February 12. The run includes two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, with many of those shows long since sold out and with only a handful of tickets left at the remaining dates.
