Bastille struck chart gold with “Pompeii”. That chant-filled rock/pop anthem finally reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 last week — almost a year after being released in early 2013. While the slow burn hit continues to grow in popularity, the rest of the world has moved on. In fact, the Brits are gearing up to release the 7th (!) single from Bad Blood in their homeland.
Well, I guess it’s technically the band’s 6th single because Bastille has decided to re-release “Flaws”, which just missed the UK top 20 in late 2012. It makes sense, the song is a live favorite and one of the most upbeat cuts on their excellent LP. To celebrate the track’s revival, Dan and friends have created a new video featuring live footage from the past three years. Watch up top.
Should this be the follow up to “Pompeii” in the US? Have your say in the comments below.
