London four-piece Bastille release their hugely anticipated second album, ‘Wild World’ on 9th September. The album follows the band’s global four million selling, multi-platinum debut, Bad Blood.
To support the release Bastille announce the ‘Wild Wild World Tour’ taking in fourteen Arenas around the UK throughout October and November including a show at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Saturday 5 November 2016.
The announcement follows a fever pitch build spearheaded by infectious new single ‘Good Grief’, which received an incredible reaction across media and charted as last week’s highest new entry as well as achieving the most week-one streams ever for an alternative single. The surreal video for the track clocked up over half a million views in just 48 hours and the band’s recent triumphant Glastonbury set drew one of the largest crowds of the weekend and was hailed by the NME as “A masterclass in how to win Glastonbury.”
Wild World retains the vivid, rich, filmic song-writing of its predecessor but pushes the band’s distinctive sound in exciting new directions. Lyrically, too, it’s a leap forward, “If our first album was about growing up and the anxieties surrounding it” Dan explains, “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. 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 band continue their run of summer festivals including appearances at T in the Park, V festival, Festival No.6 and Bestival.
