Bastille have had a phenomenal start to 2013 and they're continuing their success announcing new single, "Laura Palmer" released on June 3rd. Taken from their chart-topping debut album "Bad Blood", "Laura Palmer" is the follow up to the number 2 chart smash, "Pompeii", one of the UK’s biggest selling singles of the year.

Influenced by David Lynch’s seminal TV Series "Twin Peaks", "Laura Palmer" is an epic, cinematic pop song laden with haunting strings, soaring vocals and pulsating beats.
Bastille's number 1 album, "Bad Blood" is currently in its sixth week in the UK Top 10 album charts and reached gold-status (100,000 sales) within the first two weeks of release. Previous single, "Pompeii" is still in the UK top 5 after seven weeks.

" Dan, embracing his role as front-man, excels in the live arena. We remember and laugh about last year at The Harley when he went for a wander around the stage and ended up getting stranded, stuck on a speaker. So, now with much larger stages to play around on we ask if Dan has any new tricks to show the crowd? And, Kyle is quick to answer for him; “Dan is like a kid that needs reigns on to pull him back. In
Prestonthere was a massive truss structure going up and he was up on the monitor and then the speaker and then up on that truss, the highest I’ve seen him be so far,” so make no doubt that their live show is unmissable. "
