Bastille have announced a string of UK and European arena dates for 2022, in support of their recently announced fourth album.
The band revealed details of new record, Give Me The Future, last week, set to arrive on February 4, 2022 and described as “a tribute to humanity in a tech age” that “reflects on the strangeness of living through times that can feel like science fiction.”
Give Me The Future has been trailed by recent singles “Bad Days”, “Distorted Light Beam”, “Thelma + Louise” and the album’s title track.
“Working on these songs in such an apocalyptic period, with everyone stuck at home, glued to screens, fed into the feeling that what is real and what is not has become pretty difficult to discern sometimes,” frontman Dan Smith said of the new record in a press release.
“We’re in the age of deep fake, fake news and lying world leaders. But online, you can be anyone. What that does to our sense of self and to our relationships is huge and it’s fascinating.”
Speaking about the forthcoming tour dates in a new statement, Smith said: “We’re all massively excited to head out on tour with this new album that we love.
“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.”
A presale for tour tickets will begin at 9am on November 2, with the main sale launching at 9am on November 5. Visit Bastille’s official website for further information.
