Competition: WIN! Bastille New Album ‘Wild World’
WIN NEW ALBUM ‘WILD WORLD’
It’s just five years since South Londoner, Dan Smith started Bastille alone in his bedroom, releasing 300 copies of debut single, Flaws/Icarus.
Relentless gigging, genuine word of mouth and some smartly curated mixtapes meant that within three years Bastille had become a global phenomenon; the band’s chart-conquering debut album ‘Bad Blood’ selling over four million albums alongside eleven million singles.
In the UK, the twice Number One album was certified double-platinum and named the biggest-selling digital album of 2013. Hit singles such as ‘Pompeii (one of the biggest alternative anthems of the last few years) helped Bastille become the year’s biggest-selling global breakthrough act; with over a billion Spotify streams earning the band British Breakthrough at the following year’s Brits, alongside two Grammy nominations.
Their new NUMBER ONE album, ‘Wild World’ retains the vivid, rich, filmic songwriting of its predecessor but pushes the band’s unique sound in exciting new directions. 2016 looks set to see Bastille scale new heights and cement their reputation as a major global act.
