Since striking gold with the sprawling, metaphor-filled love song Pompeii, Bastille have been pegged as the next big indie-pop crossover. But are they the real deal? After last night's gig at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, the answer is a resounding yes.
Bastille have always sounded like an arena rock band, and their new album Wild World ensures they'll never be playing small venues ever again. Stuffed full of epic pop anthems, it quashes any fears of fans that the band wouldn't be able to reach the heady heights of 'Pompeii' again, and confirms their status as one of the UK's most exciting musical exports.
Hailing from Leeds, England, the group signed with Virgin Records in 2010 and released their hit single "Pompeii" three years later, ahead of their debut album "Bad Blood". Bastille actually started out as a solo project by frontman Dan Smith, named after the French historic holiday, Bastille Day, which is also celebrated on his birthday. He initially expanded the project to include five additional band members but reduced this to make up the four-piece band Bastille are today. Catch them playing cuts from Wild World when they hit in Providence and Philadelphia!
