North London’s most prolific and underrated band, Bombay Bicycle Club, have announced their first major UK headline tour in two years. This news comes following an announcement revealing details of their fourth album due out on February 3rd 2014 through Island Records.

The band are well known for their massive live following and critically acclaimed performances which have seen them play major slots at some of the biggest festivals across the world as well as some huge venues including Alexandra Palace last year which sold out (10,000 capacity) well in advance of the show.

The new album looks to break exciting new ground yet again for a band that are effortlessly diversifying and innovating at an astonishing rate.  Frontman Jack Steadman wrote the record while travelling through India, Turkey and Tokyo as well as the UK and the Netherlands; you can really hear the influence of all the different cultures and their native genres among the beautifully crafted songs on this hugely ambitious record.
