To mark the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough album Bad Blood, Bastille will release a special edition on July 14.
Bad Blood X will be released in a 2 x CD format, a clear vinyl and a special 7-inch record.
The announcement was accompanied by the release of an official recording of their fan-favorite track “No Angels.”
Speaking about Bad Blood X, Bastille lead singer Dan Smith said, “When I started working on the songs that became ‘Bad Blood’ 10 years ago at a laptop in my bedroom, I never imagined that they’d be heard by so many people and then take us all over the world. It’s really mad to think about.”
“Ten years on, we wanted to put something special together to celebrate the album, whilst not messing with it too much,” he added.
“We had so much fun digging back through old artwork, photos, and videos from that time to make a totally new package of artwork. My Dad even found an old CD-R of some of demos in the attic (that somehow people managed to pry out of my hands for a new 7″ vinyl as part of this release – trust me… I didn’t think those versions would ever get heard). Putting all this together was such a nice way to step back into that world for a moment, and we really hope our fans feel the same way.”
Bastille are set to embark on their summer tour on June 28 in Dublin.
