Bastille has just unveiled the official video for “Bad Decisions,” a track from the band’s critically acclaimed new album, Doom Days. In the brilliant new video frontman, Dan Smith plays author Dr Dan Bastille, plugging the self-help book Bad Decisions in an infomercial. While Dr Dan dispenses questionable advice, the camera follows a collection of erratic colourful characters wreaking havoc as the night unfolds.
The video, which was directed by Zac Ella (Wiley, Superfood) and Emile Rafael (Jamie N Commons, X Ambassadors) can be viewed – below:
Bastille will perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” tonight.
