Bastille to return with new album, tour

Virgin Records
On June 14, Virgin Records will release Bastille’s new album, Doom Days. Made by Dan Smith with bandmates Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson and Chris ‘Woody’ Wood, and producer Mark Crew, it sees the GRAMMY®-nominated, Brit-winning band stretch out and open up like never before.

Today, as the album pre-order launched, Bastille shared the lead single “Joy” – stream HERE – and announced its fall North American tour. The run will kick off in September in Philadelphia.

Every online ticket order purchased for the U.S. dates on the fall tour will include a CD of the new album. The pre-sale code will be revealed on the band’s Instagram Stories the morning of the pre-sale launch. The artist ticket pre-sale begins on Friday, May 3, at 10:00 AM local time. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, May 10, starting at 10:00 AM local time.

Fans who pre-order Doom Days in digital format will instantly receive “Joy” plus the No. 1 Alternative hit “Quarter Past Midnight” and the title track. View the official video for “Doom Days” HERE.

Doom Days was recorded during the course of 2018 at the band’s South London studio, One Eyed Jack’s. 

“That glimmer of hope at the end of the album says everything,” says Dan Smith, about the new single “Joy.” 

“The smallest human gesture can pull you back from the brink.”

Bastille has sold over eight million adjusted albums and amassed more than 6.5 billion cumulative streams globally. The band was introduced internationally with the single “Pompeii,” which is now 6x Platinum in the U.S. alone. “Pompeii” and subsequent hits “Good Grief” (2016) and “Quarter Past Midnight” (2018) each topped the Mediabase Alternative chart in the States.

Marshmello and Bastille’s hit single, “Happier,” has topped charts around the world, with cumulative streams exceeding two billion. Certified 2x Platinum in the U.S., “Happier” held the No. 1 position for three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s BDS and Mediabase/Top 40 Radio Airplay chart. It also topped Billboard's Alternative Songs and Dance/Electronic Streaming chart, among others.
