The Untouchable British India

British India will welcome Nothing Touches Me at Geelong’s Worker’s Club on May 30. The gig is one of 18 dates, the final of the run, in celebration of the band’s fifth album which dropped only a matter of days ago. Formed out of Melbourne in 2004, the band released their debut album, Guillotine, in 2007. The album won the Australian Independent Record (AIR) Award for Best New International Artist, while leading to appearances at all the major Australian festivals, including the Big Day Out, Splendour in the Grass, Golden Plains and Homebake. As for their new release, the album was written in Melbourne throughout 2014, with recording taking place between Berlin and their hometown. According to press, the album captures the essence of the band’s earliest singles while also pushing forwards to new sounds. Frontman Declan Melia: “We’re looking forward to releasing and touring our new album. We like taking bands on the road who challenge us to step up, which is why we’re taking Grenadiers and Tired Lion, they’re both blistering live bands. Unbroken Expanse are buddies of ours from NT, a real force to behold and the ultimate party band. It’s going to be a great tour!”
