Guitarist and founding member of British India Nic Wilson has announced he will retire from music at the end of this year. 

Formed at St Bede’s collage in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, British India burst onto the scene in 2007. A love of music and a driving determination was the key ingredient that turned four budding musicians into a fierce garage band, who quickly gained a reputation for explosive live shows and the ability to write great pop songs.
 
A chance meeting with legendary producer Harry Vanda and future manager Glenn Goldsmith resulted in their debut album ‘Guillotine’ being released independently in July 2007.‘ Supported by triple J radio and relentless touring the album would go onto sell 20,000 copies and the band won the AIR award for ‘best new group’ in 2007. 

Within 12 months British India released their 2nd album ‘Thieves’ to great fanfare. The album debuted at No 5 and was nominate for 3 ARIA awards. By the end 2008 British India had become one of the biggest young rock bands in the country. They continued to assent, releasing ‘Avalanche’ in 2010, yet another Top 10 debut.

The band turned a new corner in their career in 2012 signing with Liberation Records and Mushroom Music. 

At Liberation British India would release their most successful albums to date, ‘Controller’ & ‘Nothing Touches Me’. They also scored their first Gold Record with the hit ‘I Can Make You Love Me’. In 2017 they released their 6th studio album ‘Forgetting The Future’ again playing a sold out national tour.

Over 10 years British India have notched up 8 entries into the Hottest 100, released 6 albums, played every major festival in Australia and have headlined over 700 shows. They have toured with many international acts and supported The Rolling Stones. 

“British India is something we started as snotty nosed high school kids, that became something much bigger and more important to people than we could have ever expected. The three lads in the band were the three best men at my wedding and the three best men to play a part in in my life.

We decided on everything together as children to adults and proved that democracy can prevail when done right. 
I was lucky to share every terrible Tarago road trip with them laughing hysterically as the road disappeared behind us. I was lucky to share the stage at first playing to nobody and then playing to thousands.  

And I was lucky to live out the dream a 12-year-old version of myself pined for daily. To play music to people who cared. For that – I Thank you. But time moves on and I have other things I want to try my hand at and I am ready to see what else I can do.

Thank you for the memories everybody.  Rock n Roll I gave you the best years of my life.” -
 NIC WILSON 2018

To celebrate Nic Wilson’s awesome career the band will play one final tour with him. This will be the last chance to see the original line up on stage. British India are currently in the studio writing and recording new songs.
