With their hotly-anticipated new album, Give Me The Future, set to arrive in February, Bastille have revealed that they are celebrating by hitting the road in April to play some massive gigs.

Their tour includes shows in Brighton, Plymouth, Cardiff, Glasgow, and Manchester, as well as a huge gig at London’s O2, and two big nights at the O2 in Birmingham. “We’re all massively excited to head out on tour with this new album that we love,” lead vocalist Dan Smith said. 

He continued: “After everything that’s happened over the last couple of years, we’re buzzing to play for everyone at these brilliant venues and can’t wait to have some fun back on the road again… here’s to gigging in 2022.”

The BRIT-winning band’s run of shows is called the Give Me The Future tour 2022, and will promote the album of the same name, which is set for release on February 4th. The new record, according to the band’s official statement, “explores both the opportunities of new technology and the dark side of lives lived online, it’s as playful and fun as it is thought-provoking, as dystopian as it is dancefloor-friendly, and as electronic as Bastille have ever been.”

The band are calling this 'the first leg' of their Give Me The Future tour 2022, so hopefully there will be more live dates to come later next year as well.

Whilst this tour will be fans’ first chance to hear the new album live, Bastille have been busy with festival appearances over the past summer, with brilliant headline slots at Latitude and Standon Calling. They also played two superb sold-out shows at Hampton Court Palace Festival, and they popped into the Virgin Radio studios to play a brilliant live session for The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky. 

Tickets for Bastille’s 2022 tour go on sale next week, with pre-sale on Tuesday 2nd November and general sale on Friday 5th November. For tickets and details go here.
