“When can we expect the third album?”
For those who follow Bastille’s Dan Smith on Twitter, this has become a borderline-annoying response with no known definition. “Soon” can mean anything from months, to weeks, to days, according to Dan.
But I come bearing good news. Ladies and gentlemen, soon is here. Doom Days are coming.
The title track off their third LP, Doom Days, provides a glimpse into what is in store for an album Dan described as an “apocalyptic party album.”
In that interview with ABC Radio, Dan explains, “It’s essentially the story of a night, and it’s about escapism, and trying to escape problems in your relationships and problems that you see of the world via the TV, and it’s about trying to lose yourself in the nighttime in this different space that exists.”
“Doom Days” serves as the follow-up single to last summer’s “Quarter Past Midnight.”
The LP Doom Days remains without a release date, but it’s safe to say we’ll be getting it… soon.
