British band Bastille have revealed how they would like to die, should they ever appear as characters on hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones.

The group’s music video for new single “Oblivion” features actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark.

Her casting put them under pressure to gen up on the goings on in Westeros and, judging by some of their recent comments, the quartet are fans of the Emmy nominated series.

Frontman Dan Smith told Digital Spy that, should he be offered an on-screen death, he would like to see his head “bitten off by a dragon and then the rest of (his) body roasted by its fire”.

Bandmate Kyle Simmons chimed in requesting simply “head off”, before bassist William Farquarson decided he would “die in an orgy” as there “seems to be lots”.

“Oh no, I want your one now,” said Kyle. “Maybe my head cut off… in an orgy. Now we’re talking!”

 

Bastille are riding high on the success of their hit track “Pompeii”, named the most-streamed track ever in the UK last month with over 26 million streams, according to date from the Official Charts Company.
