Bastille is an English rock band formed in London in 2010, which began as a solo project by singer/songwriter Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. The band now consists of four members: Daniel Smith, Chris Wood, William Farquarson and Kyle Simmons. The name of the band is derived from Bastille Day – an event celebrated on Daniel Smith's birthday, July 14th.

Their debut album, "Bad Blood," was released in March 2013, and their single "Pompeii" was released to huge demand, charting at #2 in the UK. They performed the hit on The Ellen Show in December 2013. In October of 2014, Bastille announced their third mixtape, "VS. (Other People's Heartache, Pt.III)," featuring collaborations with Lizzo, HAIM, MNEK, Angel Haze, and others. In 2015, they were nominated for Best New Artist at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, with Sam Smith ultimately winning. Bastille continued to tour as they worked on their second album, "Wild World," released in September of 2016. The album features hit songs like “Good Grief,” “The Currents” and “Two Evils,” helping it to reach #1 on both the UK and Scottish album charts in the same month as its release.
