Describing the tour, Bastille’s Dan Smith said: “We’ve spent most of this last year working on loads of new music and touring different versions of our songs so now we’re excited to head back out and revisit more intimate rooms and play a bunch of new songs in the lead up to our new album.”
Meanwhile, Bastille teased to NME earlier this year that fans can expect their third album to sound “euphoric”.
“This album is very self-contained in its story and its sound”, Smith said.
“But I’ve also massively contradicted myself. There’s a lot of diversity in there, and I think it defines this last year and this era of what we want to do.
“There’s definitely an element of euphoria on the record , but also how close that is to despair at the same time.”
Confirming the record’s completion, Smith said: “It’s finished and our record label refuse to give me a specific date for the release, because they know I will just immediately say it out loud.”
