BRITISH INDIA UNVEIL NEW SINGLE ‘WRONG DIRECTION’ + TOURING SOON
(AND SUPPORTING THE ROLLING STONES!)
+ NEW ALBUM EXPECTED EARLY 2015
Bold, brash and as loud as ever.
British India’s new single ‘Wrong Direction’ doesn’t skip a beat from where the band last left off with Controller. The single offers the first taste of the band’s yet-to-be-named fifth album, due for release early in 2015.
To complement the release of the single, the band are heading out on a national tour, also kicking off on Friday. The tour includes two very special shows with The Rolling Stones. The band was chosen by the legendary rock outfit themselves to open their massive concerts at Hanging Rock and Hope Estate in November. They are understandably chuffed at the prospect:
“They’re one of the very few bands all four of us truly love and their music has sound-tracked our career since we started,” said singer, Declan Melia.
Emerging from Melbourne’s indie rock underground in 2007 with their ‘AIR Award’ winning debut Guillotine, British India’s popularity grew with each subsequent release. The band’s continued success has cemented their reputation as one of the most popular and successful Australian rock acts in recent years.
Indeed, their last album, Controller, saw their stars continue to rise. The album landed itself neatly inside the Top 10 of the ARIA Albums Chart (their third consecutive Top 10 album release) and included the band’s biggest and highest selling single to date, the GOLD, ‘I Can Make You Love Me’.
The boys have recently returned from Berlin, where they worked on tracks for their forthcoming LP, which will be released early in 2015. Watch this space.
