Bastille Announces ‘Wild World’ Release Date

Pop Perspective: "Sledgehammer"
The latest to be dragged under the Idolator microsope is Rihanna's 'Star Trek: Beyond' theme.

Expect new Bastille music later this year. The UK pop-rockers announced today (July 1) that they will release sophomore album Wild World (cover art above) on September 9. This features “Good Grief,” Bastille’s bid for 2016’s song of the summer, as the most added single across alternative and triple A (adult album alternative) radio.

“We’ve been working non-stop on Wild World for the last few years and are so excited for you guys to finally hear it in a few months,” Bastille says in a statement.

Truth be told, Bastille hasn’t made folks wait that long. Only three years have passed since the group scored its breakthrough hit with 2013’s “Pompeii,” which made a cameo during Glee‘s fifth season finale. But those years have certainly been a whirlwind, as Bastille was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2015 Grammys and named Best Breakthrough Act at the BRITs.
