Bastille to bring Wild, Wild World Tour to Toronto
British indie pop outfit Bastille will bring their Wild, Wild World Tour to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Friday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. with special guest Mondo Cozmo.
Bastille is touring in continued support of their sophomore studio full-length, Wild World. The 14-track album, co-produced by Mark Crew (The Wombats, Rag N Bone Man), reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200 following its September 2016 release via Virgin Records. Wild World is anchored by the lead single “Good Grief” and includes two additional singles: “Send Them Off!” and “Blame.”
Bad Blood, the four-piece’s debut studio long-player, was first released in March 2013 in the United Kingdom through Virgin EMI. The album, recorded in London with lead singer Dan Smith and producer Mark Crew at the helm, was released several months later in the United States. It reached No. 11 on the Billboard 200 and earned Bastille several nominations, including one for Best New Artist at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards and British Album of the Year at the 2014 BRIT Awards. Bad Blood produced seven singles: “Overjoyed,” “Bad Blood,” “Flaws,” “Pompeii,” “Laura Palmer,” “Things We Lost in the Fire,” and “Oblivion.”
Also on the bill is Mondo Cozmo, a solo project from Philadelphia-bred, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Joshua Ostrander. With influences ranging from The Verve to Bob Dylan, the current project finds Ostrander, who previously founded successful indie rock trio Easter Conference Champions, blending stadium-ready Britpop with Americana. Back in September, Mondo Cozmo dropped his latest single “Shine.” Ostrander has yet to release an album under the Mondo Cozmo moniker.
