Bastille

Biography

Combining glossy '80s synth pop and arena-friendly choruses on singles such as "Pompeii," London's Bastille sold millions of their debut album Bad Blood. The group began as the solo project of singer/songwriter Dan Smith — whose birthday is July 14 (aka Bastille Day) but became a full-fledged band in 2010 with the addition of Chris Wood, William Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons. Bastille attracted a lot of attention after putting a few tracks online, leading to support slots at major U.K. festivals like Glastonbury and the Isle of Wight. Eventually they secured a deal with hip indie label Young and Lost Club and released their debut 7” single, Flaws/Icarus, in July 2011. This was followed later that year by the Laura Palmer EP, named for the teenaged murder victim in David Lynch's cult '90s TV series Twin Peaks; the creepy accompanying video for the track “Overjoyed” was also heavily inspired by the series. "Overjoyed" also became Bastille's first single for EMI Records in April 2012, while "Bad Blood," which was released that August, peaked at number 90 in the U.K. charts. The band had greater success with "Flaws," their first single to debut in the Top 40 upon its release in October 2012. However, Bastille's true breakthrough came with "Pompeii," which reached number two on the U.K. charts in February 2013. The following month, the band's first full-length arrived, debuting at the top of the U.K. Albums Chart. That November, All This Bad Blood, a deluxe version of the album featuring the new single "Of the Night," was released. Bad Blood sold over two million copies and helped Bastille earn a 2014 Brit Award for Best Breakthrough Act, as well as nominations for British Album of the Year, British Single of the Year, and British Group. Late that year they released the third installment of their mixtape series, VS. (Other People's Heartache, Pt. III), which included collaborations with the likes of HAIM, MNEK, and Angel Haze. ~ John D. Buchanan & Heather Phares, Rovi
