It seems like only yesterday British India were touring around the country following the release of their 2017 record 'Forgetting the Future'. The band are thrilled to announce that they'll be returning to stages around the country in May and June on the Midnight Homie Tour, kicking off in Bendigo on May 11 and continuing through regional and metropolitan cities in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, before finishing off at The Gov in Adelaide on July 6.
To celebrate the release of Midnight Homie, the band have put a call out to fans and all music lovers, saying "With our next tour for Midnight Homie just around the corner, we have come up with an ambitious idea. Send us video footage and photos of you and your best friends having the best night of your lives. These will be turned into a fan video. so you can be immortalised forever in British India history. Please use wetransfer.com to send your videos and still to firstname.lastname@example.org. All content should be (preferably) shot in landscape."
With raging guitars, seriously provocative lyrics and palpable energy that confidently struts through track's entirety, there is little wonder Midnight Homie has quickly become a fan favourite on the album and the live stage. It was twisted alt-rock warlourd Lou Reed who once said "My week beats your whole year", but British India have upped those stakes on their new single, touting. "My night is better than your whole life." Armed with the precision rock stylings of the new record, plus a bulging back catalogue of Australian live favourites- think Hottest 100 dominating tracks like 'Vanilla', 'I Can Make You Love Me' and , 'Suddenly'- Australia's most loved indie rockers are here to prove the snarling intention behind that arrogant claim.
Forgetting the Future is British India's sith studio album and its innovative direction has been met with widespread applause, including leading the band to sign an international licensing deal with NYC indie label, AntiFragile. The LP debuted at #12 on the ARIA Albums Chart and previous singles 'My Love' and 'Precious' were both added to high rotation on triple j, with 'My Love' also scoring the most played track on Triple M in its first week..
Over the course of their impressive career, British India have earned four Top 10 ARIA albums, eight entries into the Hottest 100 and their classic single 'I Can Make You Love Me' is accredited Gold in Australia.
