Having brought the house down at their sold out Alexandra Palace homecoming gig last month, Bombay Bicycle Club are proud to announce the release of ‘Beg’, which is to be the last single released from ‘A Different Kind of Fix’, on July 9th.

The release of ‘Beg’ as a single is unique in that the song wasn’t actually featured on the original physical version of the album but as a bonus track on the digital album release. The band recently added the song to their live set and had an amazing response from fans, so decided to release it as their final single from this campaign. The news also comes after their recently announced and hotly tipped appearance at the BBC Hackney Weekend towards the end of June.

‘Beg’ was Zane’s Hottest Record last night on R1. You can listen to the track on the following official YouTube link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74naF1Eueno

To celebrate the release of ‘Beg’ as the final single from the album, the band commissioned a remix by the American superstar disco production guru, Tom Moulton. The world-renowned record producer, whose previous collaborations include disco giants Gloria Gaynor and Grace Jones is known as the ‘King of Disco’. Moulton is widely credited as being the producer who invented the ‘Disco Mix’.

2012 has already been a whirlwind year for the quartet North London band who on top of selling out one of the biggest venues in London have: toured Australia with Elbow, been nominated for three NME awards and embarked on a headline tour across North America with two more trips across the pond scheduled for later this year.

In February, Bombay Bicycle Club performed at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. Two songs from the concert aired about a week later on Last Call with Carson Daly.

This past Monday, Last Call aired two other songs “Lights Out, Words Gone” and “Leave It” from the show.

By Michel Dussack

It seems that lately America starting to realize that great things are happening musically across the pond. It started with Mumford & Sons performing at the 2011 Grammys and since then, people have been more receptive than ever to British rock. This was particularly true on March 5th at New York’s Bowery Ballroom where Bombay Bicycle Club played to a sold out crowd (two days after playing to a sold out Music Hall of Williamsburg).

While the band played identical 80 minute sets both nights, many die-hard fans showed up to both shows, something that opener Lucy Rose noted when she saw two familiar faces from the Williamsburg show in the same spots at Bowery Ballroom. Her set was far too short, and she had the rare power of silencing a crowd during an acoustic set, though it wouldn’t be long before we got treated to more of her wonderful voice during Bombay Bicycle Club’s set.

Next up was The Darcys, an indie rock band from Toronto who also impressed the now very crowded venue. While they were slightly more aggressive than one would expect opening for a band like Bombay Bicycle Club, everyone seemed to enjoy them, and they nicely warmed up the crowd for the main attraction.

When Bombay Bicycle Club finally took the stage, they did so to rapturous applause from a crowd eager to see them. While the band is a technically a four piece, they were augmented by a keyboardist, vocals from Lucy Rose, and a trumpet player who just met up with the band the day of their Williamsburg show. Vocalist and guitarist Jack Steadman is a brilliant frontman, and while he was short on interaction and banter, it seemed more of a time constraint than a lack of caring about his fans as he made sure to speak to everyone that waited after the show for him.

And while Steadman is indeed a proper frontman, everyone got their turn to shine throughout the course of the show. Bassist Ed Nash is potentially the most underrated member of the band, with his basslines driving nearly all of the songs. Lead guitarist Jamie MacColl riffs can alternate between seriously heavy and delicate, something truly impressive to pull off. Suren de Saram is truly a sight to behold on drums, and during one extended drum solo, MacColl held out a cowbell for him to play while their touring keyboardist jokingly picked up a fan from the stage to cool him off as he played. Indeed, this is a band that enjoys playing with each other, something that was noticeable from the first note until the last.

Bombay Bicycle Club played 17 songs throughout the night, though personal favorites came towards the end. Most notably, during ‘Always Like This’, Steadman was able to step away from his microphone and let the crowd finish out the song for him, something he looked quite proud of. When the band returned for their two song encore, he made sure to thank the crowd for the excellent show, and proceeded to play “Shuffle” and an extremely energetic rendition of “What If” to cap off a wonderfully fun night and the best set I’ve seen from the band.

Bombay Bicycle Club have always had youth on their side. Through touring they have built a fiercely loyal, tattooing-lyrics-on-their-arm kind of fanbase. But A Different Kind of Fix, their latest album out now digitally with a physical release in January 2012 on A&M/Octone, is a giant step into adulthood: an intoxicating, enveloping record, which anchors its diverse inspirations in the warmth and dynamism of vocalist/guitarist Jack Steadman’s songwriting. It draws the strands of their debut album I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose, and the folk-influenced follow-up Flaws into a panoramic picture of what this band is capable of. It is a watershed for the band: not just their best record yet, but a promise of still better to come. In support of the album, Bombay Bicycle Club will be playing select U.S. dates in February and March 2012, to be announced.

Already one of the most acclaimed albums of the year in the UK, with the four piece gracing the cover of five magazines including the NME, A Different Kind of Fix’s U.S. release and its subsequent U.S. tour dates are exciting news for American fans who have embraced the band’s music but have had very little opportunity to experience their transcendent live shows. The band, made up of Jack Steadman (vocals, guitars), Jamie MacColl (guitars), Suren De Saram (drums), and Ed Nash (bass), made a rare appearance stateside in March 2011 for a string of one-off dates at packed venues in New York and Austin following the U.S. release of their widely adored debut, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose. Returning to American soil this summer for a slightly longer run of dates with Two Door Cinema Club, Bombay Bicycle Club filled venues with fervent fans and finally had the chance to wow U.S. critics, with SPIN placing the band in the “9 Best Moments of Virgin Mobile FreeFest” and USA Today praising the set and declaring it a “promising start in the USA.” While the band has remained a rare gem to U.S. audiences, they have been infiltrating the UK music scene over the past three years. I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose skyrocketed the band to indie rock notoriety and won them the crown of “Best New Band” at the 2010 NME Awards, among other accolades. This is where most new bands would take a year or so to regroup and plot their next move. Instead, Bombay Bicycle Club took a left-turn with 2010’s folk-influenced Flaws. Their label was initially reluctant to release a second album so soon, and an acoustic one at that, but Flaws landed in the top 10 in the UK and was nominated for the prestigious Ivor Novello award.

With A Different Kind of Fix, the production is intrinsic to the songwriting process rather than a final polish. Many songs started out as laptop loops or rearranged samples before blossoming into full-band pop songs. Helping to bring these ideas to fruition is long-time producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian) as well as producer Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, M.I.A.), who recorded “Shuffle,” “Your Eyes” and “Favourite Day” with the band. Stand out opening track “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep,” which appeared in demo form on the soundtrack to Twilight: Eclipse, opens the album with eye-widening mantric dream-pop. The first single “Shuffle” compresses hip hop breakbeats, highlife guitars, chopped-up piano samples and campfire psychedelia into one of the most irresistible pop songs of the year. From start to finish, A Different Kind of Fix, is an exhilarating collection of tracks that blows the doors open with an unapologetic velocity and youthful hunger.
