After confirming full details of new album ‘Doom Days’ last month, Bastille have announced plans for an “immersive theatrical experience”, titled ‘Still Avoiding Tomorrow’ to accompany the record’s release.
Author and playwright Charlotte Bogard Macleod has created three interactive stories based on the record’s theme, with fans able to choose which character’s arc to follow sonically via headphones.
The event will take place at London’s 9294 on 14th June - the same day as the record hits shelves - with two performances on the night.
The band will additionally perform the album in full as part of a YouTube live stream.
Tickets are on general sale from 10am on Friday 31st May.
Bastille tour the UK later this year.
