Pop rock icon Bastille was a solo project founded by singer-songwriter Dan Smith in 2010. He eventually brought in band members Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson, and Chris Wood. They dropped several self-released EPs before releasing their debut album, Bad Blood, in 2013. Released via Virgin Record, Bad Blood is currently Bastille’s most commercially successful album. The effort topped the U.K. chart and entered three U.S. Billboard charts. Besides the U.K. and U.S., Bad Blood charted in 15 other countries. The album released several hit singles, including the six-time platinum-selling song “Pompeii.” The single peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 on the U.K. Mainstream chart. The album’s other singles include “Laura Palmer,” “Things We Lost in the Fire,” “Flaws,” and the title track.
After the phenomenal success of their debut album, the band released their sophomore effort, Wild World. The album became the band’s highest charting effort in the U.S., peaking at number 4 on the Billboard 200 and number 2 on the Top Alternative and Top Rock Albums charts. That same year, the effort dropped several critically-acclaimed hit singles, including “Good Grief” and “Send Them Off.”
Apart from their official releases, the band collaborated with renowned artists. In 2018, Bastille released “Happier” with Marshmello. The single became one of the band’s most successful singles to date – entering the charts in 40 countries and earning multi-platinum certifications in 15 countries.
In 2019, the band dropped their third effort Doom Days, which spawned several singles, “Quarter Past Midnight,” “Joy,” “Those Nights,” and the title track. The concept album highlighted the importance of escapism, friendships, and hope. It received wide acclaim from fans and critics, with some writers describing the records as a “vivid snapshot of humanity and an imaginative, adventurous leveling up from one of Britain’s most influential bands.”
Last year, the band released their third studio effort to reach number 1 in the U.K. Give Me the Future debuted at number 1 on the U.K. chart and entered three U.S. Billboard categories. Bastille worked with acclaimed music producer and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder for this record. The album spawned several notable singles, including “Distorted Light Beam,” “Thema + Lousies,” “No Bad Days,” and the highly-regarded title track.
