Bastille have won the award for Best Album supported by HMV at the VO5 Awards 2017 for their second record ‘Wild World’.
The London four-piece faced off tough competition from Kanye West, Skepta, The 1975, Radiohead and Beyoncé to claim the trophy.
The group kicked off the ceremony earlier in the night with a performance of their track ‘Good Grief’. The Maccabees guitarist Felix White and TV presenter Laura Jackson presented the award to the band.
'Thank you very much – I think we're probably about as surprised as you are,' said Bastille frontman Dan Smith. 'I think Adele put it better about winning over Beyonce, but thank you so much. We tried to make an album about how fucked the world seems and trying to get your head around it. I think everybody before us tonight has said much more articulate things than us four idiots could say.'
