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.

After over a year of relentless touring and writing, Bastions are back with their debut album, "Hospital Corners".

Recorded by friend and fellow member of a touring band, Lewis Johns; their forthcoming debut jumps headfirst to into the void. A record that sheds light on the darkest recesses of the human psyche: Surrendering one's faculties over to hospitalisation, sinking into disrepair, panic and anxiety and succumbing to dark vices. Heavily influenced by vocalist and lyricist Jamie Burne's experiences as a support worker and research psychologist, "Hospital Corners" covers a wide scope, but holds a simple recurring theme; failing oneself.

Possessed with an unrelenting tension throughout, and balancing the aching heaviness and unorthodox melodies that they're becoming renowned for, Bastions have created a haunting, unsettling debut. From the unassuming opening of "Augury", to the dynamic closer, "Dark Father", the record will surely cast a shadow over much of the close mindedness and "playing it safe" that exists within much of contemporary heavy music."
