On the heels of the band’s first UK No. 1 album, Bombay Bicycle Club is prepping for a North American tour that kicks off Oct. 1.
The trove of archival footage includes the band’s 1998 appearance on VH1’s ‘Storytellers,’ both MTV ‘Unplugged’ performances and 99(!) live songs shot between 1995-2008.
And so it continues with the less-than-conventional album releases.
As the band explains on their website, the photograph on the cover is the band’s drummer “protecting his 18-year-old son.”
One can’t help but wonder if the guys of The Eeries purposely tried to make it extremely hard for anyone to discover their band. Or, if it was an accidental business model that has just so happened to pay off.
U2 giving away their album for free via iTunes isn’t the only surprise project the band has in store for fans. It’s not even the only surprise project they have in the works with Apple.
The track is from Marr’s upcoming solo album, ‘Playland.’
Just to be clear, Bono knows how invasive it was to drop his surprise album in your iCloud — but that was the point. In an interview this morning, the U2 frontman opened up about the band’s release method.
For 25 of the shows, Metallica’s setlist was created by their fans as part of their By Request Tour.
The always outspoken Osbourne matriarch is not impressed by U2’s move, in case you were wondering.
