English indie rock band Bastille have posted via Facebook a video snippet about the follow-up to 2013’s “Bad blood”.
“I’ve heard lots of bands talking about making their ‘difficult’ second album” says the frontman Dan Smith “but we never thought that far ahead. I guess, until recently, we haven’t had much time to think about.”
“We’ve been so lucky to be touring constantly over the past few years, and it’s been a lot of fun,” he continues, over clips from the band’s recent festival run. “But it’s meant that we’ve massively had to adapt the way that we make music. This new album has been written and recorded on tour buses, in backstage rooms and hotels all over the place. The process of writing and making the songs hasn’t changed much, it’s just that this time around, we’re doing way less of it in my bedroom.”
Last September, Bastille released an independent single called “Hangin'”. The band are also on the “Kill your friends” soundtrack with a cover of the Sugababes debut single “Overload”.
