Bastille Unveil Video For New Single Revolution

Wednesday, 17 August 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Bastille have shared a video for their new single, Revolution.

The song was released in July as a preview of 'Part Two - Dreams Of The Past', the second part of their upcoming three-part double album, 'Give Me The Future + Dreams Of The Past'. The extended edition of their latest LP, 'Give Me The Future', will arrive on August 26. Discussing the track, and its inspiration, frontman Dan Smith said:

“The chorus is about the intimacy of human connection in the context of some science fiction, space-centered imagery. But it’s also about the idea of those amazingly thoughtful people who spend their lives trying to change the world in a positive way.

“I’m totally over-awed by people like that – if you’re one of them, like an inventor, activist or scientist, you have to have the ability to imagine a version of the future that’s better than what currently exists, and then have that energy to actually work to make it happen. Alongside all the other things life throws at you. So, I wanted to nod to those people and the idea that before anything big happens, most of them will have had these little revolutions in their minds, a change of perspective that leads to something bigger.”

Bastille have had a busy summer of festival appearances, and still have sets coming up at Reading and Leeds. Following that, they’ll embark on the South American leg of their Give Me The Future Tour, then will head to Europe for shows in November.
