Bastille Biography (Wikipedia)
Bastille (stylised as BΔSTILLE) are an English indie rock band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by singer Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. Beside Smith, the four-piece consists of Chris "Woody" Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons. The name of the band derives from Bastille Day, which is celebrated on 14 July, Smith's birthday.
After an independently released debut single and a self-released EP, the band signed to Virgin Records. Their first studio album, Bad Blood, was released in March 2013 and entered the UK Albums Chart at number one. The band was nominated for four Brit Awards at the 2014 ceremony, winning the British Breakthrough Act. As of November 2014, Bastille have sold over 5 million records in the US and 2.5 million records in the UK.
