Bastille announce new album, arena tour

By | Published on Monday 4 July 2016


Bastille have announced that they will release their new album, ‘Wild World’, on 9 Sep, ahead of an arena tour in October and November.

“If our first album was about growing up and the anxieties surrounding it, our second is about trying to make sense of the world around you, both as you see it and as it’s presented to you through the media”, says frontman Dan Smith. “It’s also about asking questions of the world and of the people in it. We wanted the album to be a bit disorientating – at times extroverted and introverted, light and dark”.

The album’s first single, ‘Good Greif’, was released last month.
