AWARD-WINNING rock band Bastille are returning to Brighton as part of a brand new European tour.

The tour, which includes a run of shows at London's O2 Arena, as well as Manchester and Birmingham, will give fans the opportunity to hear the band's anticipated fourth album Give Me The Future for the first time live.

Lead vocalist Dan Smith said: "We're all massively excited to head out on tour with this new album that we love.

"After everything that has 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."

Give Me The Future is set for release on February 4, and will explore the opportunities of new technology, as well as the dark side of lives lived online.

The album promises to be as playful and fun as it is thought-provoking, and as dystopian as it is dancefloor-friendly.

The band said each song of Give Me The Future aim to take the listener to a "sci-fi wonderland free of restrictions", with each song offering "a different danceable dreamscape, a place where you can be anyone, do anything and embrace a new wave of technology which enables us to get lost inside our own imagination".

Bastille headlined Latitude and Standon Calling over the summer, and played two sold-out shows at Hampton Court Palace Festival.

The band will perform at the Brighton Centre on April 18, with tickets available from November 5.

The Brit Award winning four-piece have sold over 11 million records, with 1.5 billion video views and six UK top 40 singles, including Pompeii, Happier and Good Grief.
