English rock band Bastille has recently been heating up the world of pop music too; with their hit 'Pompeii'. The four member British group released their first album on an independent London label in 2010. Their first official single was released via Virgin Records in 2012. Since that time they have been making waves on both sides of the pond.
While the group had moderate success with 3 prior releases from their debut album, it wasn't until 'Pompeii' that they scored a top 10 song on both UK and US charts. In May of 2013 the group began headlining their own tour beginning in the UK. After an appearance on the BRIT awards the groups singles sales soared and with the digital releases here in the states the groups Bad Blood album became one of the best selling in 2013.
They are currently at work on a second studio album. In January the group will be headlining an Asian Tour heading to Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong and Singapore. This follows on the heels of their North American tour where the group has been playing arenas, theaters, performance halls, auditoriums and TV appearances.
Good things lay ahead for this group. Keep an eye on them to be the next big thing!
