Today, Bastille unveiled the official video for “Bad Decisions,” a track from the band’s new album, Doom Days (Virgin Records). The comedic clip casts frontman Dan Smith as author Dr. Dan Bastille, plugging the self-help book Bad Decisions in an infomercial. While Dr. Dan dispenses questionable advice, the camera follows a colorful collection of erratic characters wreaking havoc as the night unfolds. The video, which was directed by Zac Ella (Wiley, Superfood) and Emile Rafael (X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons), can be viewed below.
Bastille will perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” tonight. The band’s North American tour continues with a show at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT this Friday, September 27. The headline run includes a concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (October 12). See below for itinerary. Tickets are on sale HERE.
The GRAMMY®-nominated, BRIT-winning band is touring in support of its new album, Doom Days. Available everywhere, Doom Days takes listeners on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Album Sales chart and in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200. In a four-star review, NME said, ‘Doom Days’ is a vivid snapshot of humanity and an imaginative, adventurous levelling up from one of Britain’s most influential bands. If the end times are coming, you could do a whole lot worse than taking its lead and gathering up all your friends, pressing play and partying like it’s 1999.” “Joy” has amassed more than 70 million combined streams globally while lead single “Quarter Past Midnight” is Bastille’s third single to hit No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative chart.
Last week, Bastille released a very special version of “Million Pieces” featuring the Chamber Orchestra Of London as part of the Amazon Original series. Download / stream “Million Pieces (Orchestral Version)” HERE and view the accompanying video, shot at Abbey Road’s famed Studio 2, HERE.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “Britpop’s new crown princes,” Bastille has sold over eight million adjusted albums and amassed more than 11 billion cumulative streams globally. The band was introduced internationally with the single “Pompeii,” which is now 6x Platinum in the U.S. alone. Marshmello and Bastille’s hit single, “Happier,” has topped charts around the world, with cumulative streams exceeding 3.5 billion. It is certified 5x Platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than 15 million units in the rest of the world.
