Bri­tish In­dia to get ‘loose’

South Western Times - - Entertainment -

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.”
