Tour Of The Week: Bastille To Follow ‘Doom Days’ Release With Intimate Club Shows

Bastille have lined up nine intimate club shows around the UK this winter. Bastille tickets are on sale now, priced £41.70 including fees.

The Brit Award-winning quartet will present their forthcoming album, ‘Doom Days’, in full at tiny venues in Coventry, Carlisle, Aberdeen, Bradford, Grimsby, Llandudno, Torquay, Portsmouth, and Margate during November and December. They also appear at London’s Citadel Festival and Reading and Leeds this summer.

The synth-pop band will release the follow up to 2016’s ‘Wild World’ on June 14 via Virgin Records. Head below to check out their latest single, Joy, which follows the previously released title track and Quarter Past Midnight in previewing the record. Vocalist Dan Smith added:

“‘Doom Days’ is a record that celebrates real human connections and urges us to keep searching for moments of elation.

“It’s an album that starts in the middle of an Uber ride through the city streets and ends waking on the kitchen floor with the healing sounds of euphoric new single Joy, which sees the demons of life’s hangovers dispelled by a simple phone call from someone special.

“That glimmer of hope at the end of the album says everything – the smallest human gesture can pull you back from the brink.”
