On June 14, Virgin Records will release Bastille’s new album, Doom Days. Made by Dan Smith with bandmates Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson and Chris ‘Woody’ Wood, and producer Mark Crew, it sees the GRAMMY®-nominated, Brit-winning band stretch out and open up like never before.
Today, as the album pre-order launched, Bastille shared the lead single “Joy” – stream HERE – and announced its fall North American tour. The run will kick off on September 16 at The Met in Philadelphia and include shows at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City (September 24) and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (October 12).
Every online ticket order purchased for the U.S. dates on the fall tour will include a CD of the new album. The pre-sale code will be revealed on the band’s Instagram Stories the morning of the pre-sale launch. The artist ticket pre-sale begins on Friday, May 3, at 10:00 AM local time. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, May 10, starting at 10:00 AM local time.
Fans who pre-order Doom Days in digital format will instantly receive “Joy” plus the No. 1 Alternative hit “Quarter Past Midnight” and the title track, which premiered last week on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. View the official video for “Doom Days” HERE.
Doom Days marks something of a shift in perception from its widely acclaimed predecessor, Wild World, which confronted the world and the actions of those in power. Recorded during the course of 2018 at the band’s South London studio, One Eyed Jack’s, the new album captures the need to temporarily switch off and escape.
Doom Days takes the listener on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding
