It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Bastille which comes as a surprise because the band’s breakout song, “Pompeii” was being played on the hour every hour on the radio.
Frontman Dan Smith had said that the band would go into the studio to quickly release a new album, but thanks in part to their never-ending touring, festivals, and just random shows that seemed to have been a little more difficult than expected to record a new album.
At last, Bastille have finally released a new song, officially. The song, titled “Torn Apart,” made its debut yesterday afternoon on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. “Torn Apart” will be featured on Bastille’s third mixtape, VS. (Other People’s Heartache, Part 3) which is due out in December.
Check out the new song below.
As for that new album, the band were supposed to return to the studio in September to begin demoing as many tracks as possible before condensing it down to what will become their second album.
