Bastions are passion incarnate. Every spat word, every tortured note, every painful beat tears emotion away from your head and shoves it back into your heart.
Bastions are a rare breed of band in that can actually defy a genre description. Cutting their teeth on the toilet circuit rather than the internet, the band relentlessly toured the UK over the last year with a schedule that would have most bands weeping.
The band is known for an intense and emotional live performance; with their sheer energy and power cutting swathes through any audience catching a glimpse of the event.
2011 has already seen them support Gallows on their UK tour and playing both Main Stage and Rocksound stage for Hevy Festival.
