Bombay Bicycle Club announce hiatus

29 January 2016, 15:02 | Written by Laurence Day

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced that they are going on hiatus for the foreseeable future.

The indie-pop outfit write in a statement: "After ten years of doing this we thought it was time for all of us to try something else. For a band that has been together for such a long time, we are all still incredibly close and probably get on even better than we did when we started the band."

The statement also provides an update on the band members' lives - frontman Jack Steadman and bass player Ed Nash are recording solo albums, Jamie MacColl is returning to university and preparing to enter "the world of music management", and drummer Suren De Saram is "playing drums for anyone lucky enough to get him".

Final (for now) record So Long, See You Tomorrow was released in 2014.
