Bombay Bicycle Club The Glass House – 9/25/19 Tickets $32.50+ fees - on sale this Friday at 10am After a five-year hiatus, UK 4-piece BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB first teased the idea of new music and live shows in January 2019, with a social media post: “With a new year ahead of us, we thought now would be a good moment to give you a bit of news about what the four of us have been up to recently and what we have planned. Since late last year we’ve been getting back into the swing of playing music together. We were initially a little rusty but also nostalgic playing songs that have been around since we were teenagers. More than anything it just felt great to be in the same room playing again. It made us realise what a good thing we have and has given us renewed energy and enthusiasm for the future. The joy we were getting out of playing the old songs seemed to naturally lead us onto working on new material, so we’re becoming immersed in that as we speak. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we have something new for you guys to hear. We’re also planning some shows for later this year and beyond. We’ll have news on that front over the coming months.” We are delighted to announce Bombay Bicycle Club’s first Pomona performance in 5 years – The Glass House on 9/25/19. Tickets $32.50 will go on sale this Friday at 10am and are available at: Bombay Bicycle Club will also play a number of North American dates outlined at BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB have released four albums, with the most recent being ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’ in 2014, which reached No 1 in the UK and went on to win an Ivor Novello Award and be nominated for the Mercury Prize.

In 2007, Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom quit teaching history and started a band, named after a religious tract handed to him by a wide-eyed zealot in Toronto. Mathias subsequently invited all of his friends to join him in performing his songs about seagulls, shopping malls, conferences, and the similarities between love and hurricanes. Over the next ten years and almost as many albums, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell have changed often, but the band has remained idiosyncratic and unclassifiable—much to the delight of those who love them. The constant has always remained Kom’s singular outlook on the world: wise and naive, cynical and life-affirming, full of brilliant, unexpected narratives and a deeply felt generosity of spirit. The band's live performances underscore these themes: they exhibit a joy and camaraderie too infrequently seen on stage. Indeed, the essence of the band is inclusive and celebratory; whether live or on record, there's something for everyone. As Tom Robinson of BBC Introducing said about The Burning Hell, "even Jesus is going to enjoy this, once he finally gets here."
