We grabbed a chat with indie rockers Bastille ahead of their late night Sound City gig at pop-up venue The Garage.

Hijacking the Wolstenholme Square Car Park for the festival, Sound City transformed the venue into a warehouse style party. Sporting cute print T-shirts, front-man Dan Smith told us he was enjoying the bar to fuel him for the long road ahead to Europe.

Bastille, who have scored a number 1 album this year, are set to support English rockers Muse at their upcoming Manchester gig next month before heading off for the festival circuit.

Following the success of latest single Pompeii, Laura Palmer will be Bastille’s fifth single, set for release in early June.

Bastille Frontman Dan said: “We’ve played Liverpool on every tour we’ve done, so we’re really excited to be here at our first Sound City.

“It’s such a late billing, I hope people turn up. So it’s not just the four of us playing to ourselves.

“We just want to enjoy ourselves and get drunk before heading back to London and hitting the road to Europe for gigs in Brussels and Amsterdam.”
