Bastille have announced a world tour.
The band have confirmed details of the UK and European leg of their 2016/2017 world tour, in support of their upcoming album “Wild World”, due for release on 9th September.
Singer Dan Smith said of the album: “If our first album was about growing up and the anxieties surrounding it, our second is about trying to make sense of the world around you, both as you see it and as it’s presented to you through the media. It’s also about asking questions of the world and of the people in it.
“We wanted the album to be a bit disorientating – at times extroverted and introverted, light and dark.”
He added that the main theme of the album is relationships, saying: “The world can seem a fucked up place. But people? Well, people can be amazing. The relationships you choose to have in your life are the main solace. They’re the things that make life awesome.”
In celebration of the album, Bastille will kick off their UK shows on 28th October in Bournemouth, followed by shows in Plymouth, Cardiff, London, Leeds and Nottingham.
Shows in Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle have also been confirmed, ahead of the start of their European shows on 16th November in Amsterdam.
The band will also perform in Copenhagen, Prague, Antwerp, Barcelona and many more European cities which will take them through until February 2017.
Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday (8th July).
