Bombay Bicycle Club will release live album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose – Live At Brixton on 11th December via Mmm… Records + Caroline International.
The album was recorded on 8th November 2019 at the band’s sold out Brixton Academy show, celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album. The band said: “This was a particularly special night for us […] seriously a show that we’ll all remember forever – and especially considering what’s happened since, we’re grateful we have a memory like this to keep us all going until live music can resume.”
The original release cemented band members Jack Steadman, Jamie MacColl, Suren de Saram, and Ed Nash as mainstays in the English indie rock scene.
The live record follows on from the release of Bombay Bicycle Club’s fifth studio album, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, earlier this year.
The band is also broadcasting a special live performance of the album on December 15th at 8PM GMT time.
“We wanted to do something special to coincide with the release of I Had The Blues Live at Brixton and because we only played 5 smaller shows in the UK last year for the 10 year anniversary, we’re going to broadcast a special live performance of the album from start to finish. It will premiere on December 15th at 8PM GMT time and be available for 48 hours on demand after so anyone anywhere should have more than enough time to watch,” said the band.
I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose – Live At Brixton will available digitally, on vinyl and CD and as a double LP, which includes the original studio album as well as the live recording.
