The word Bastille brings to mind revolution, change and the storming of the old by the spirit of the new. When London-based singer/songwriter Dan Smith called his band Bastille, he was merely thinking of his birthday, July 14, France's Bastille Day. But for one of the biggest British acts in the world right now, with hindsight Smith's choice seems an ominously apt metaphor for their dramatic impact. Fast forward to 2016 where Bastille has scaled new heights, completing a summer festival tour and drawing the largest crowd on the Friday at Reading Festival. Bastille recently released the album “Wild World” and will bring it to Boston on March 27, 2017.
