More on Bastille:
The four-piece has been experimenting and augmenting the Bastille sound since the release of their last album Doom Days in 2019, the conclusion of an unofficial trilogy. Last year, they released the GoosebumpsEP, featuring Graham Cox on on “WHAT YOU GONNA DO???” and producer Kenny Beats on the title track, as they continued to pen songs that seek to understand and offer escape from the modern human condition. Doom Days received huge critical acclaim and charted in the Top 5 in both the U.K.and U.S., the only U.K.band to have achieved this chart landmark alongside The Beatles and Queen in 2019. The record found the band at their most lyrically provocative, most accomplished, and most vital and charts the course of one night in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse (sound familiar?).During the course of 2019, the four-piece continued to cement their reputation as one of the world’s most captivating live bands, having played an extensive two month-long sold-out U.S.and U.K.tour. At the beginning of 2020,Bastille received their sixth Brit nomination and their second nomination for British Group.In January 2021, Bastille was the subject of ReOrchestrated, a documentary film that provided a revelatory and bracingly honest new look into the band’s journey so far, framed through their ReOrchestrated shows and diving into themes of motivation, anxiety, and imposter syndrome.This summer,Bastille will headline both Latitude Festival and Stand on Calling Festival, with a further two sold-out shows at Hampton Court Palace Festival in August.With over 11 million records sold, 6 U.K.Top 40 singles, and 1.5 billion video views, Bastille continues to be one of the world’s most streamed bands.
