Biography

North London, United Kingdom (2006 – present)

Bombay Bicycle Club are a band which formed in North London, United Kingdom in 2006 by Jack Steadman (vocals, guitar, bass), Jamie MacColl (bass, guitar, , vocals), Suren De Saram (drums) under the name of The Canals when they were 15. Ed Nash (bass, keyboard, ) later joined the trio as they switched between various aliases before picking Bombay Bicycle Club. The band took their name from a chain of curry houses in the London Area and have released four studio albums, “I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose” (2009), “Flaws” (2010), “A Different Kind of Fix” (2011) and “So Long, See You Tomorrow” (2014).

After winning the opening slot at V Festival 2006 (‘Road to V’ competition) and also played Reading / Leeds Festival for the three years running, in Febuary 2007 they released their début EP The Boy I Used to Be. This was followed up in October with the release of their second EP How We Are. In mid-July of 2009 they released their first album I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose consisting of 12 tracks. The album peaked at number 46 on the UK Official Album Charts.

In Summer 2010 they released their second album, Flaws . A UK tour co-incided with the release of the album which - surprisingly - is an acoustic recording. Venues on the tour reflected this new acoustic orientation, which gained them a number 8 on the album charts.

The lead single from their third album, A Different Kind of Fix was released on June 23, 2011 and peaked at #40 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in the United States, the band’s first chart appearance in the country. The album reached the number 6 position on the UK album charts.
