Bastille Get “Torn Apart” in New Music Video


Bastille premiered their new song “Torn apart” last month, and almost as quickly as the dance-y song was uploaded, it was taken down. (Don’t worry, the song was put back up a little while after it was taken down).

Today, the group have released the music video for the song which is odd, to say the least. It begins with speeches from different people about love and then goes into the music video showing those who spoke at the beginning with their partner.

The video continues on with the couples doing couple-y things, but keep on morphing into other couples doing other things like having sex, watching TV, becoming a punching bag. Weird we know, our sentiments exactly.

But, if you were expecting to see any members of Bastille in the video don’t. The only person that has a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance is frontman Dan Smith who appears on the television screen briefly.

Check out the video here.

“Torn Apart” will appear on the band’s upcoming “mixtape” record, VS. Other People’s Heartache Pt. III which will be released on Dec. 8.

Bastille Release New Track, “Torn Apart”


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.
