Bastille is an indie-rock outfit from London, UK. Formed in 2010 by singer-songwriter Dan Smith, Bastille was originally slated to be a solo project, but eventually expanded into a band. The idea for the band name originated due to Dan’s birthday falling on Bastille Day in France. They released the Flaws EP in 2012 and Laura Palmer EP in 2013, producing singles such as “Overjoyed”, “Flaws”, “Bad Blood” and “Pompeii”. “Pompeii” reached No.1 in Scotland and No.2 in the UK, and their first studio album, Bad Blood, debuted at No.1 on the UK Albums Chart in March 2013.
