Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
British four-piece Bastille have confirmed details of an intimate UK tour.
Supporting venues in towns away from the usual touring stops, the Doom Days Club Nights tour will see the band head to Coventry, Carlisle, Aberdeen, Bradford, Grimsby, Llandudno, Torquay, Portsmouth and Margate this winter.
The newly announced tour will be in support of Bastille’s highly anticipated third studio album Doom Days, due for release on 14 June 2019.
The new album was recorded in the band’s South London studio throughout the past year.
The theme of the highly ambitious new record takes the listener on a big night out, to distract them from the surrounding apocalypse.
The band recently dropped the video for the lead single from the album. Watch the reflective visuals for Joy below:
The Doom Days Club Nights shows will immerse fans into the world of the album. The experience will be based around an apocalyptic party club night, with DJ sets taking them on a journey through the album’s narrative. The band will then perform the new album live from start to finish.
The band, comprised of frontman and lyricist, Dan Smith, keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist and guitarist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood recently completed a run of headline dates, which included two sold out shows at O2 Academy Brixton.
Bastille’s two previous full-length albums Bad Blood and follow-up Wild World both reached No.1 in the UK, and they’ve also won British Breakthrough Act at the BRITs, as well as Grammy, AMA and MTV Europe Awards nominations.
Bastille will bring their new album Doom Days to life across the UK this winter.
