Bastille // The Interview. Dan Smith & Kyle Simmons

“Even being number two, or three or four or five is totally unbelievable. We literally can’t believe it, it’s the weirdest thing in the world.” Dan Smith, Bastille

It’s early evening on Sunday 10th March and Bastille’s debut album “Bad Blood”, after fending off the likes of Emeli Sande, has just been announced as scoring the prestigious number one spot in the Official Top 40 Chart. The band’s recent success may have come as a surprise to some, however a huge underground following has made Bastille the UK’s worst kept secret; word of mouth has seen their fan base grow and grow even before the album release, and quite rightly so. 
Est.1987 caught up with Dan and Kyle at their sold out Leeds show…

Bastille // Live Review, Leeds Uni- Stylus, Sunday 10th March

From the opening murmuring dark undertones of “Bad Blood” to the final rapturous applause, tonight is electrically charged. This evening wasn’t about judging if Bastille were a good live band or not (we already know they are) it was more a matter of just how good they were going to be. 

And, more than that, after their album "Bad Blood" was just announced as clinching the number 1 spot, tonight was about taking a chance to celebrate their success and, for one night only, everyone in the room being able to ride that wave along with them.
