British India to get ‘loose’
MELBOURNE rock royalty British India will play “one of their favourite gigs” at the Prince of Wales Hotel on November 2 as they tour their latest album Forgetting The Future .
“The Prince of Wales is always one of our favourite gigs to play and we wish we could play more often,” vocalist Declan Melia said.
“The west was one of the first places that really showed us love after the first record.
“That show takes us back to when we used to play house parties, because that is what we are best at – these little intimate sweaty drunk shows where there is no separation from the band and the audience.
“That is really where we thrive because that’s what we grew up doing.”
After five successful albums, British India found themselves at the crossroads and Forgetting The Future tells the story of the band “destroying their world in order to live in it”.
Melia said fans should be “expecting a party”. “It’s pretty loose and we will take requests – if the audience wants to hear a song they should shout it out and we will play it,” he said.
“Come have a drink and a dance and go wild, it’s all a bit of stupid harmless fun.”
