IW musicians to get big break with Bastille

The popular band FOURS, which features two Isle of Wight musicians, is to support Bastille on their forthcoming European tour.

On Friday (December 14), FOURS revealed that they would be supporting Bastille on their 2019 European tour in Prague, Vienna and Stuttgart.

Luke Jeffries (Drums) and Jezza Wells (Bass Guitar) both feature in the London-based band FOURS. Both musicians, Luke from Bembridge and Jezza from Whitwell, are former students of Platform One College of Music in Newport. The pair formed FOURS in 2014 with Edith Violet (Vocals) and Dan Smith (Guitar). Their indie pop song, Fade to Love, has already been streamed almost six million times on Spotify.

Jezza has expressed his delight in FOURS being selected for the European tour, saying: “We’re so excited to be supporting a band whose music we genuinely love and taking our own to some beautiful European cities. It’s an amazing opportunity.”
