Australia’s indie rock darlings British India return with ‘Vanilla’ the big, bold and beautiful new single from their forthcoming third album, scheduled for release in March 2010.
For two months and two months only, ‘Vanilla’ will be available as a free download exclusively on the triple j website beginning Monday 21st September. This will be the only chance fans will get to own a copy of ‘Vanilla’ prior to the album release next year. British India will launch ‘Vanilla’ on an extensive 30 date national tour over 10 weeks.
The ‘Vanilla’ Single Launch Tour 2009 will see British India once again consolidating their place as one of Australia’s hardest working bands when they play 30 shows beginning now through to mid-December, hitting all major cities and regional towns in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, West Australia, Tasmania and ACT.
The boys are currently hard at work in the studio writing and recording their new album. For the first time in B.I. history these four high school friends are enjoying the luxury of recording an album in their hometown Melbourne, demoing rough gems and polishing pop gold at Sing Sing Studios. The band’s previous studio albums – last year’s ARIA nominated Thieves and 2007’s debut Guillotine – were both recorded in Sydney.
In keeping with their one word album titles the working title of the new record is Avalanches, from which ‘Vanilla’ is your first tasty treat. Do not miss your chance to own British India’s delicious new single ‘Vanilla,’ available exclusively from the triple j website for two months only beginning Monday 21st September.
