Bastille will play Margate Winter Gardens this winter

Brit award winners Bastille have announced a run of nine intimate dates this year to mark the release of their latest album - and will finish in Kent.

The Grammy nominated band, whose third album Doom Days is out in June, will play a date at Margate Winter Gardens in December.

For the unique shows they have been deliberately chosen venues off their usual touring route.

They will give fans a chance to experience an 'apocalyptic party’ club night, warming up with a DJ set before taking them on a journey through the album, which the band will play live from start to finish.

They will headline the Margate venue on Monday, December 9, with other towns being taken in including Aberdeen. Grimsby and Portsmouth.

The band, who played Neverworld last year, have sold more than 8 million albums and with accumulated global streams of more than 6.5 billion. Their previous albums both debuted at No.1 in the U.K.

Doom Days is a record celebrating real human connections and urges people to keep searching for moments of elation.

“That glimmer of hope at the end of the album says everything,” says singer Dan Smith, whose bandmates are Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson and Chris ‘Woody’ Wood, and producer Mark Crew.

“The smallest human gesture can pull you back from the brink.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 10 at 9am. For details go to bastillebastille.com/live/ or go to margatewintergardens.co.uk
