About Bastions: Bastions are a visceral alternative/hardcore band hailing from the most northern point of Wales. With three self released E.P.'s under their collective belts, Bastions sharpened their teeth with their 7" "Island Living" (Tangled Talk/Holy Roar). Released in August 2010, "Island Living" was a dark and brooding affair that showed a raw honesty that few bands hold. Recorded by Ben Phillips (Lightship95), the E.P. explored a wide range of sonic territories in just under 10 minutes, and offered an alluring glimpse into what the future would hold.
