Rolling Stone hailed Bastille as “Brit pop’s new crown princes” upon the release of the band’s second album, Wild World, which retained the vivid, filmic songwriting of its predecessor, but pushed the band’s unique sound in new directions. In the U.K., Wild World debuted at No. 1 on the album chart and the first single, “Good Grief,” topped Apple Music’s Hot Tracks chart and the Shazam chart. The band returns to the road with the extensive “Wild, Wild World Tour.” Founded by Dan Smith (vocalist/songwriter), Bastille’s line-up is completed by Chris Wood (drums), Will Farquarson (guitar) and Kyle Simmons (keyboards).
