Bastille (stylised as BΔSTILLE) are a British indie pop[2] band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by lead vocalist Dan Smith, but later expanded to include keyboardist Kyle Simmons, guitarist and bassist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood.[3] The name of the band derives from Bastille Day, which is celebrated on 14 July, the date of Smith's birthday.[4]

After an independently released debut single and a self-released EP, the band signed to Virgin Records.[5] Their first studio album, Bad Blood, was released in March 2013 and entered the UK Albums Chart at number one.[6] The band was nominated for four Brit Awards at the 2014 ceremony, winning the British Breakthrough Act.[7] As of November 2014, Bastille have sold over 5 million records in the US and 2.5 million records in the UK.[8]
