    Bastille will perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, October 12. Last week, the band launched “The Born To Be Wild World North American Mini Tour” tour. The short run, which sold out in minutes, includes headline shows at intimate venues such as the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY (October 3), New York City’s Bowery Ballroom (October 4) and the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (October 9 and 10). Bastille will also headline the fourth annual, sold-out Jeep on the Rocks Concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on October 7.

    The band is touring in support of its sophomore album, Wild World (Virgin Records), which debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 and spent two weeks at No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart. Available HERE, Wild World is the follow-up to 2013’s Bad Blood, which also debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart. Bad Blood has sold more than four million albums worldwide alongside 11 million singles.

    “Good Grief,” the first single from Wild World, has more than 39 million streams globally on Spotify to date, including seven million in the U.S. alone. In the U.K., the track reached No. 1 on Apple Music’s Hot Tracks chart and the Shazam chart. Views for the official “Good Grief” video, which can be seen HERE, now exceed six million.

    Rolling Stone hailed Bastille as “Brit pop’s new crown princes” and noted, “‘Wild World’ has stadium ambitions.” Entertainment Weekly observed, “The UK foursome expanded their influences with dizzying effects…EDM-style builds and drops propel enormous hooks, while handclap rhythms and drum machines carry sunny sing-alongs.” Q Magazineawarded it four stars and noted, “[Bastille’s] timely second album hits the right spot.” In another four-star review, DIY Magazine observed, “Opener ‘Good Grief’ sets the tone brilliantly, its pomp and grandeur juxtaposed perfectly with Dan Smith’s dark-tinged tale of coping with life after death.”

    Dan Smith started Bastille alone in his bedroom five years ago, releasing 300 copies of debut single “Flaws/Icarus.” Joined by Chris Wood (drums), Will Farquarson (guitar) and Kyle Simmons (keyboards), the band line-up was complete. Bastille’s debut album, Bad Blood, contained the 5x Platinum single “Pompeii” and the Gold-certified tracks “Bad Blood” and “Flaws.” “Pompeii” topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs, Hot Rock Songs, Adult Alternative Songs and Dance Club Songs charts.
