Bastille to host their own pop-up in London today

Fans can visit the pop-up for free on London's Brick Lane today (September 13)

Bastille have announced that they will be hosting their own pop-up experience on Brick Lane in East London today (September 13).

The band’s ‘WWCOMMS’ (Wild World Communications) pop-up will be free, and open to the public between 12pm and 8pm at Shop 7, opposite the Rough Trade East music store.


On Friday (September 9), the four-piece released their eagerly-anticipated second album ‘Wild World’, shortly after bringing their WWCOMMS pop-up to New York City. Fans were invited to purchase exclusive ‘Wild World’ merchandise at the walk-around exhibition, and the band were there too, dressed in forensic overalls and answering questions.

Bastille are set for their second Number One album this week, with ‘Wild World’ likely to repeat the chart-topping peak of their debut album ‘Bad Blood’ in 2013.

Discussing what inspires him to write songs, the band’s frontman Dan Smith told NME recently: “I’ve never been interested in diarising my life through song. So much stuff has been done before. So many people have brilliantly articulated the pain of heartbreak or the joy of love or whatever. Those elements exist in our music but I guess I strive to write about unconventional things instead.”
