Bastille announce autumn 2013 UK tour
Dan Smith and crew follow number-one album Bad Blood with new EP and headline dates, tickets on sale now
Not so long ago, 2010 to be exact, one Dan Smith, a London-based electro-pop songwriter, formed the basis of Bastille and issued his debut single "Flaws" on fledgling indie imprint Young and Lost Club. By gradually slipping a few more tunes onto You Tube he built up enough interest to warrant extending his pet-project into a full-time job with a band.
EPs such as "Laura Palmer" showcased their sound before Virgin Records doffed the cap of dreams and signed them up. The resultant album "Bad Blood", fully issued this year, has spawned hit-singles in the form of a re-released "Flaws" and #2 hit "Pompeii" - the long-player itself went to #1. Job done.
Well, not quite. Due to a rapidly-expanding fanbase, Bastille's fate looks secure for the foreseeable future. Festival appearances, support for Muse during their May arena tour and overseas shows are now the order of the day. With another re-release due out in June ("Laura Palmer" will be out on the 3rd), Dan Smith has been inspired to confirm a short autumn tour.
Bastille's 'Bad Blood Returns' headlining jaunt will include stops in Brixton on 15th October, followed by the likes of Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Newcastle and more until Birmingham on 3rd November.
Tickets on sale now, priced £16 regionally, £18.50 for London. Demand will be brisk.
