London quartet Bastille will be releasing their second album Wild World on September 9. The new album will be supported by an arena tour which sees the band play Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on October 31.
Wild World follows the band’s global four million selling, multi-platinum debut, Bad Blood and is already raising eyebrows due to its album cover.
Featuring two individuals balanced precariously above a cityscape, the cover provokes questions as to why they are there and what happens next. “To me, the image isn’t about what’s just happened or what happens next,” says Dan Smith of the band, “It’s not about how they got there or how they get down. It’s about sharing a moment. Two friends existing in that split second in that exact space, two people framed in the vast context of this huge mad metropolis that we’ve all built. They’re there out of choice.”
