Love ’em or hate ’em, you can’t deny that, Bastille played a gigantic part in the soundtrack of the last couple of years. They performed at almost every festival under the sun, had their tracks plastered across adverts and found themselves clocking up a ridiculous amount of radio airtime. Their rise was mammoth. And now, the band have announced their almighty return.
A two-minute video surfaced online via Bastille’s official Facebook page yesterday (February 11th), documenting what the band have been up-to since the release of their 2013 debut, Bad Blood.
Over various clips from Bastille’s festival run, Dan Smith from the band said “We’ve been so lucky to be touring constantly over the past few years… But it’s meant that we’ve massively had to adapt the way we make music… The process of writing and making the songs hasn’t changed mush, it’s just that this time around, we’re doing way less of it in my bedroom.”
