British alt-pop outfit Bastille have confirmed two Australian headline gigs for this September, marking their first visit Down Under in four years.

The East Coast shows come as the band prepares to the release their highly-anticipated third album, featuring lead single Quarter Past Midnight, which dropped earlier this month.

Last November, the UK quartet had their song World Gone Mad feature on Will Smith Netflix film Bright and collaborated with Craig David on single I Know You.

They’ll perform at Forum Theatre, Melbourne on September 1 and Big Top Sydney on September 2, with rising Aussie star Nicole Millar supporting at both shows.
