Congratulations to Melbourne’s indie rockers British India whose new album Nothing Touches Me rocketed into the ARIA Album Chart at #5 this week.

The impressive debut marks the band’s fourth consecutive ARIA Top 10 release, the first Australian rock band since Grinspoon to achieve such a feat. They join the ranks of fellow local rock luminaries, The Living End and Powderfinger, who have also both achieved multiple consecutive Top 10 ARIA Album Chart entries.

In a career spanning ten years, the four school friends from Melbourne have released five albums and scored seven entries into triple J’s illustrious Hottest 100 countdown.  They won an AIR Award for their debut album Guillotine in 2007 and have also been nominated for ARIA Awards and a J Award since.

In 2012, they turned a new corner in their career, signing to Liberation Music.  The band’s fourth album Controller became their most successful to date, spawning their first ever gold record for hit single ‘I Can Make You Love Me’.

Now, with singles ‘Wrong Direction’ and ‘Suddenly’ blasting the airwaves on alternative and rock radio, Nothing Touches Me sees the band at the peak of their powers.  They have survived a tumultuous musical landscape and a tough decade for rock acts, emerging stronger than ever.

‘British India’s fifth studio album Nothing Touches Me is polished, passionate and genuinely stirring.’ –  Herald Sun

‘Some bands burn brightly, albeit briefly, others like British India mature over a decade…’ – The Age

‘Declan Melia’s lyrics are a high point, his ability to make poetic, everyday emotions is a rare talent.’ – Rolling Stone

‘British India are close to having no comparable peers in terms of their sound and song craft. They have become the benchmark to which new and up-and-coming bands are compared and differentiated.’ – Scenestr

‘The best album of their 10-year career.’ – Tone Deaf

To mark the album’s release, British India launch an extensive 18-date headline tour on April 16 that will see them traverse hundreds of kilometres, from Darwin in the north down to Hobart in the south.

Whilst the entire headline tour is 18+, exciting news is now at hand for British India’s many underage fans.  Frontier Touring have today confirmed that the boys will be appearing as the special guests of Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons (Radioactive’, ‘Demons’ and ‘On Top Of The World’) who will be playing their biggest shows to date across the Australian east coast in all ages venues this September.

British India’s younger fans are often unable to see the band live.  Now, thanks to Frontier Touring, they can.
