The Guardian hailed “Good Grief” – the first single from the band’s forthcoming album, Wild World – as a “great summer festival anthem.” Idolator observed, “Bastille is making a play for the Song of the Summer crown…with [its] bouncy, wistful melody, the track has the potential to easily dominate the pop radio waves in the months to come.”
“Good Grief” is already a Top 10 hit at Alternative and Triple A radio in the U.S. In the U.K., the track was added straight to the Radio 1 A list, reached No. 1 on Apple Music’s Hot Tracks chart and topped the Shazam chart.

Wild World (Virgin Records) – the follow-up to Bastille’s debut album, Bad Blood, which has sold more than four million albums worldwide alongside 11 million singles – will be released on September 9. Fans who pre-order Wild World digitally HERE will instantly receive “Good Grief.”

Written by Dan Smith and co-produced with Mark Crew, Wild World is a collection of 14 songs (19 on the deluxe edition) that finds Bastille at their boldest and most daring.

 
Smith started Bastille alone in his bedroom five years ago, releasing 300 copies of debut single “Flaws/Icarus.” Joined by Chris Wood (drums), Will Farquarson (guitar) and Kyle Simmons (keyboards), the band line-up was complete.
