British band Bastille has announced that it will re-release its debut album, Bad Blood, in the U.K. next month in a deluxe two-CD edition featuring new tracks, rarities and cover versions. The second disc will contain old and new unreleased tracks, along with selections from the group’s two early mixtapes, Other Peoples Heartache Parts 1 and 2, plus two recently recorded brand new songs.
Frontman Dan Smith said that the re-release, titled All This Bad Blood, “feels like a complete representation of what we have done so far and what we’d like to do in the future. The first part allows us to properly release the tracks that we love and play live all the time but couldn’t fit on our proper debut. The second part is a mini version of one of our mix tapes which weaves in a couple of new songs that show the extremes of where we’re heading on our next album; one guitar-driven and the other way more electronic.”
There is no release date confirmed for the set either in the U.K. or the U.S., although a new single called “Of The Night” is already out along with a video.
Bastille’s monster hit from the original version of Bad Blood, “Pompeii,” is currently Number Two on the Alternative radio chart. The album arrived in the U.S. on September 3rd.
Bastille is currently touring Europe through the end of November but will return to the U.S. in early December for a series of holiday radio festivals.
