Bastille is nominated for Best British Album, Best Single, Best Group and Best Breakthrough Artist. When asked about their nominations Bastille commented, "We're up against people that we massively admire and love…it's nice to be included in those groups of people. And surreal." When asked what it feels like to have a hit record in the States Bastille stated, "It's mad, but it's great. It's wonderful."
In the next year th eband has a tour in the UK, other parts of Europe and the US planned at several venues as well as performances at music festivals and several other appearances scheduled. When asked about their "aggressive" tour coming up, Bastille concluded, "Someone called it a world tour the other day which made us sound like a proper band."

Bastille may think they're merely a "proper band," but I think they showed us in Studio C that they're far beyond just being "proper." Try extraordinary.
