Bombay Bicycle Club's new video for "Beg" sees two guys dancing. That's it. But it's the fact that their actions over the course of their day is so relatable that makes this an irresistable video to watch. How often do you get out of bed, turn on some music, and start dancing, and that dancing continues on for the whole day? Wherever you go, the beat is there and your feet are moving, from the moment you wake up to the moment you get home at the end of the day.
"Beg" is the latest single off of Bombay Bicycle Club's third studio album A Different Kind of Fix, with the single seeing release on July 8th via Island Records.
Since the release of their third LP A Different Kind of Fixlast August, London indie rock outfit Bombay Bicycle Club have been on an extensive tour across several continents, and this fall they will once again return to North America. After a massive tour circuit this summer, the band will be back on October 5th starting in Orlando, after which they will stop by major cities throughout the Southwest and West Coast. Check out their full tour itinerary after the jump. As well, after the jump, you can watch the first of three clips from the band's North American tour video diary.

Every bank holiday weekend in August a music festival takes place in Leeds and Reading, both of which have the same line-up playing alternate days and as preciously reported, last night the line-up was finally released. Rumours had been flying around for quite some time about who would be making an appearance and it's always nice when the rumours become a reality. As you can see from the above poster, arena conquerors Foo Fighters will return to their comfortable headline slot with The Black Keys playing before them. The Cure will also make a return to the festival, their first in 30 years! Paramore will play beneath them. Florence & The Machine will also play beneath Kasabian on the 3rd day.
Other artists announced in this first round include Justice, Maccabees and At The Drive in heading up the NME stage with the line-up being filled out by riff mongrels Pulled Apart By Horses who will open up main stage on the Friday at Leeds. Also filling out the bill are Cancer Bats, Crystal Castles, The Cribs, Miike Snow, The Horrors and SBTRKT. The Shins will make their return also! Soak it all in and make the jump to see which bands play which day at the two festivals. See you there!
I fell in love with the Bombay Bicycle Club single "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep" and the video was just a treat for the eyes too. Then the band then brought the track to the studio of Last Call with Carson Daly and now we get to hear another take on the single from Tom Vek who's re-worked the single adding his own magic touch to the song. He's given the track a bit more upbeat feel whilst keeping the foundations well and truly intact. It's been named 'Tom Vek's Big Beatnik Mix' so see if it lives up to that title below.
Bombay Bicycle Club's A Different Kind of Fix is out everywhere now.
Last week on Last Call with Carson Daly they aired two tracks that were performed by Bombay Bicycle Club from their show at the El Rey Theatre in LA. The performances were of their tracks "Shuffle" and "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep". Courtesy of The Audio Perv you can see the former at the top and the latter is available after the jump.
Bombay Bicycle Club have just uploaded their new video for the track "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep". The track features on the band's album, A Different Kind Of Fix, and the Anna Ginsburg directed video features some snazzy looking claymation and the dreams that ensue once he's of counting sheep. How happy does he seem? Watch out for the jelly fish!
