British band Bastille has broken out in a big way here in America, with the single “Pompeii” climbing the charts, reaching No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

While the band’s profile continues to rise, it will get an extra boost of credibility with the news that Bastille has remixed director/musician David Lynch’s song, “Are You Sure,” released on a special 7-inch heavyweight vinyl as part of the super-deluxe edition of the Twin Peaks director’s latest album, The Big Dream.

Bastille’s take on the tune is part of a new UK reissue of The Big Dream, which hit retailers this week (Jan. 27). The reissue will also include remixes from such electronic artists as Venetian Snares and Hot Since 82.

The band and their sky-high coiffed frontman, Dan Smith, recently made their Saturday Night Live debut (Jan. 25), performing “Pompeii” and piano ballad, “Oblivion.”

Bastille is set to make an impact on this year’s American festival season, with the group scheduled as of now to take part in Coachella, Governor’s Ball and the Hangout Music Fest.
