This week’s Now Hear This newsletter is being taken over by Bastille frontman Dan Smith, to celebrate the release of the band’s new album, Give Me the Future.
Fresh from Bastille’s sold-out performance at EartH in London for Brits Week, in support of WarChild, Dan will take us through the themes behind the new record – and also choose his favourite new tracks of the week.
The tour will be in support of the band’s highly anticipated fourth album ‘Give Me The Future’, due out on 04 February 2022.
Frontman Dan Smith says, “We’re all massively excited to head out on tour with this new album that we love. After everything that’s happened over the last couple of years, we’re buzzing to play for everyone at these brilliant venues and can’t wait to have some fun back on the road again…here’s to gigging in 2022.”
The dancefloor-friendly record is set to be a fun, thought-provoking listen, transporting fans into a sci-fi wonderland free from restrictions.
Over the summer the BRIT winning four-piece headlined two UK festivals – Latitude and Standon Calling – as well as played further sold-out shows at Hampton Court Palace Festival.
With over 11 million records sold, 6 UK Top 40 singles and 1.5 billion video views, Bastille continue to be one of the world’s most streamed bands.
Make sure you buy tickets before Friday 4 February to get the inside track on Give Me the Future, as well as to keep up with all of the best and biggest things happening in the music industry.
In the following newsletter, Bastille fans will also get the chance to win a pair of tickets to see the band at the venue of their choosing, when their arena tour kicks off in April.
