Forgetting The Future is the sixth studio album from Melbourne rock royalty, British India, set for release on 22 September. This week the band are excited to announce a massive 32-date national tour in support of their forthcoming LP.
After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. Forgetting The Future is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it. For the first time, the band has teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date.
“We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says.
“Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.”
Lead single Precious is currently spinning on rotation at Triple J. It’s stylistic new video features smoke, colour and flames, as visuals vividly portray the tragic beauty of momentary bliss. It’s incredibly executed and out now for your viewing pleasure
British India have earned themselves an honest reputation as one of the country’s hardest working bands, and their upcoming national tour reaffirms this. With 10 expansive new tracks added to their repertoire, the band will be hitting up cities all over the country for three months, kicking things off this September.
Throughout a remarkable 10-year career, British India has attained four Top 10 ARIA albums, seven entries into the Hottest 100 and their single I Can Make You Love Me is also accredited Gold in Australia. The band’s previous LP, Nothing Touches Me featured popular singles, Suddenly and Wrong Direction which have collectively accumulated over three million Spotify streams.
British India’s Forgetting The Future Tour kicks off on 16 August and drops into Canberra on 7 December at The Basement in Belconnen.
