Riding high on the success of their fifth album, Nothing Touches Me, Australian indie rockers British India will embark on a national tour to close 2015, playing The Grand Hotel, Mornington on Tuesday 29th December 2015.

It has been an outstanding year for British India. Their fifth studio album Nothing Touches Me, debuted at #5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and saw the band complete their most successful national tour to date, with a string of 18 sold out shows, including three in their hometown of Melbourne.

The four school friends emerged from Melbourne’s independent scene in 2007 with their critically acclaimed debut album Guillotine. They won the AIR Award that year and followed up the release with two Top 10 albums; Thieves in 2008 and Avalanche in 2010. The band signed to Liberation Music, releasing their fourth album Controller (their third consecutive ARIA Top 10 debut) in 2013, which also scored them their first ever gold record for their song “I Can Make You Love Me.”

British India were handpicked to play with both The Rolling Stones on their recent “14 On Fire Tour,” and as replacement for The Black Keys at this year’s Bluesfest in Byron Bay. Their fifth album, Nothing Touches Me, reached #5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and yielded the singles “Wrong Direction” and “Suddenly.” “Wrong Direction” awarded the band their seventh-ever entry into triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown this year.

British India kicked off their current 20-date tour on September 18, including two weeks of touring in the US. The acclaimed rockers are due to hit the Mornington Peninsula with perfect timing between Christmas & New Year, to play The Grand Hotel, Mornington on Tuesday 29th December 2015, with support Magic Bones.

Tickets at or call the venue on 5975 2001.
