Facts about Bastille

Who are Bastille?

Bastille started as a solo project of the singer Dan Smith, but he quickly expanded it to a band in 2010 with his three friends Kyle Simmons (keyboard), Will Farquarson (bass and guitar) and Chris “Woody” Wood (drums). Through mixtapes that the band released on the Internet, they gained more attention and soon began playing at festivals such as the Glastonbury Festival in England. They were signed by an indie label and toured with their first songs through the UK, the US and South Africa.

Where does the name Bastille come from?

The band's name goes back to the 14th of July, when France celebrates its national holiday in memory of the storming of the Bastille and singer Dan Smith celebrates his birthday. According to Dan Smith, the band initially wanted to call itself Daniel in the Den but the members agreed on naming the band Bastille. Instead, they called a song from their album “Bad Blood” like this.

Which albums have Bastille released?

After their first tour the contract with Virgin Records followed and Bastille finally released their first studio album "Bad Blood" in 2013. The album reached number one in the UK album charts and helped the band to achieve a Brit Award in 2014. After the singles "Bad Blood", "Flaws" and "Overjoyed" reached only moderate chart positions, the fourth single release "Pompeii" hit place two of the British and fifth on the American charts and gained positive critics. Thanks to the single the band finally had their big international breakthrough and is a pillar of modern rock and pop.
Bastille's third mixtape "VS. (Other People's Heartache, Pt. III)" was released in 2014. The mixtape includes, among many others, Rag'n'Bone Man, Skunk Anansie and MNEK as guest musicians. In 2016, the band announced the title of their second studio album "Wild World" on their Facebook page. The single "Good Grief" was extremely popular on British radio. The album again reached number one in the British album charts. In May 2018, Bastille released the song "Quarter Past Midnight", the first song of their third album “Doom Days” that was released in June 2019. The second song “Happier” reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2019.

Are Bastille touring in 2019 / 2020?

In September 2019 Bastille’s huge Doom Days world tour will start. It will take place in the US, Canada, mexico, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Fans from Europe will have to be patient for a little while but the probability that Bastille will also play in Europe in 2020 is extremely high. Prices for ticket vary depending on ticket category and demand but be prepared to pay something between 35€and 190€. The earlier you purchase your ticket the cheaper it will be.
