Happy Bastille Day!
Hello, silly Americans! You may have seen some references to “Bastille Day” in the news today and wondered what that was all about. This date, July 14, is a day specifically designated to celebrate British indie band Bastille, of course!
Universal Music Group
Bastille was formed in 2010, which means Bastille is older than Harper Beckham, Blue Ivy Carter, Penelope Disick, and both North AND Saint West.
