It’s been a minute since we heard anything new from Bastille, the UK band behind “Bad Blood” and “Pompeii” that broke out big last year. But lo and behold, the London pop-rockers have an EP on the way for latest All This Bad Blood single “Oblivion,” which will contain a new track titled “Bad News.”

The song kicks off with a synth squelch and quickly evolves into a mid-tempo anthem that has Bastille frontman Dan Smith singing, “Bad news like a sucker punch, moving your way / people fill the streets like nothing has changed.”

Give Bastille’s latest angsty cut a listen below.
