It's Bastille Day as band visits Berklee

UMusic Experience brought the band Bastille by Berklee College of Music Monday afternoon to show students their new documentary, “Help Me Chase Those Seconds,” and answer questions about the music industry. The British indie pop band, consisting of vocalist Dan Smith, keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood, took part in a panel discussion moderated by Passion Pit cofounder (and Berklee alum) Jeff Apruzzese. They talked about how they went from playing in front of a handful of people in pubs to performing in front of huge crowds at stadiums and venues like Agganis Arena. They also reminisced with Apruzzese about opening for Muse, a life-changing experience that both of their bands share.
