At first glance the striking artwork for Bastille’s hugely anticipated second album, ‘Wild World’, may prompt a number of questions. Who are the two individuals balanced precariously above a cityscape? Why are they there? What will happen next? But Dan Smith’s own interpretation of the image is one that runs through many of the songs on Wild World, “To me, the image isn’t about what’s just happened or what happens next,” he begins. “It’s not about how they got there or how they get down. It’s about sharing a moment — two friends existing in that split second in that exact space, two people framed in the vast context of this huge mad metropolis that we’ve all built. They’re there out of choice.”
The London four-piece 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.
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.”
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 Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Sunday 13th November 2016.
The band continue their run of summer festivals including appearances at T in the Park, V festival, Festival No.6 and Bestival.
