It seems there is no stopping London-based Bastille. Following the success of their sold out Bad Blood Tour earlier this year, the band announce their biggest tour to date taking in 14 cities across the UK as well as a prestigious show at London’s iconic Brixton Academy.

The band’s No.1 album, Bad Blood is currently in its seventh week in the UK Top 10 album chart and reached gold-status (100,000 sales) within the first two weeks of release.

Next single to be released by the band is live favorite, Laura Palmer out June 3rd. Influenced by David Lynch’s seminal TV Series, Twin Peaks, Laura Palmer is an epic, cinematic pop song laden with haunting strings, soaring vocals and pulsating beats.

The video for the track has already had over a million views and was added to the Radio 1 playlist 5 weeks upfront.

The track is the follow up to the no.2 chart smash Pompeii, which has now been certified Gold (400,000 sales) and is the seventh biggest selling single of the year.

Bastille support Muse on their forthcoming stadium shows and play many of the UK festivals over the summer including headline slots at The Great Escape and Blissfields.
