Bastille's "Quarter Past Midnight" is No. 1 at Alternative Radio

“Quarter Past Midnight,” Bastille’s new single, has taken the No. 1 spot at Alternative radio this week, according to Mediabase.


“Quarter Past Midnight,” Bastille’s new single, has taken the No. 1 spot at Alternative radio this week, according to Mediabase. The song is Bastille’s third single to top the chart – following “Pompeii” and “Good Grief.” “Quarter Past Midnight” is the band’s fastest-climbing single ever, debuting at No. 12 in May and topping the chart in 11 short weeks. Global streams of the track already exceed 30 million.

The surreal video – helmed by Austin Peters, who directed Bastille’s “Flaws,” “Laura Palmer” and “Oblivion” videos – has racked up nearly six million views worldwide. You can watch the video below:



The song is the lead single from Bastille’s forthcoming third album, the follow-up to 2016’s Wild World. It was recorded and self-produced in the band’s newly built studio – a former porn studio that now also houses frontman Dan Smith’s record label, Best Laid Plans (Rag N’Bone Man, Rationale). The five months Bastille spent in London recording new music was the longest the band has stayed in one place since releasing its RIAA certified Platinum debut album, Bad Blood, five years ago. The four-piece – comprising Smith (who is the sole songwriter and co-produces all the tracks alongside Mark Crew), keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist/guitarist Will Farquarson and drummer Chris Wood – has played over 500 shows across six continents.
