Bastille are a band from South London, England, formed in 2010. Bastille started out as a solo project by singer-songwriter Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. The quartet consists of Dan Smith, Chris ‘Woody’ Wood, Will Farquarson and Kyle Simmons. The name of the band comes from Bastille Day; the day Dan Smith was born.
They are currently promoting their upcoming debut studio album entitled “Bad Blood” that’s scheduled for release on March 4, 2013 via EMI and Virgin Records. After releasing one buzz single “Icarus” in 2011 and three promotional singles: “Overjoyed“, “Bad Blood” and “Flaws“, the latest has had quite success in England after getting into the number 21 in the official single chart.
The band is ready to impact the charts again with their new shot entitled “Pompeii“, fourth single taken from the album and it’s a perfect soft-electronic production. The single is scheduled for release on digital retailers on February 25, 2013. The music video was released on VEVO on January 21, 2013.
