For a band just a few months into the release of their debut album, Bad Blood, Bastille has been experiencing an impressive bout of success – topping charts in the UK, Scotland, and Ireland for some time now. Most recently an opening act for Muse on The 2nd Law Tour, Bastille has announced the headlining Bad Blood North American Tour, with a good number of high-demand shows lined up for the fall.
The London rock outfit, formed by vocalist and songwriter Dan Smith, is holding off on releasing their full album in the states, but their U.S.-only EP, Haunt, featuring the edgy single “Pompeii”, did debut at No.1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. After running through a few of their tracks, the blend of male choirs, artsy arrangements, and swelling choruses makes it clear why Bastille has been making headlines lately.
The Bad Blood North American Tour kicks off on September 18th in San Diego, California at the House of Blues, and will conclude at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on September 30th. As we stated above, these shows are in high demand, so Bastille fans should keep in mind that these shows are expected to sell out quickly! Also, make sure you don’t miss the band’s U.S. television debut July 24th on Conan. In the meantime, however, do yourself a favor and check out Bastille’s unreal performance of “Pompeii” live from Glastonbury 2013!
