Bleed Like Me – Expanded Reissue

Due to demand, influential alternative rock band Garbage are making their 4th studio album Bleed Like Me available on vinyl for the first time since it was originally released in 2005. Bleed Like Me is out 5th April via BMG/Stunvolume.

Fully remastered for 2024, this expanded reissue of 2005’s Bleed Like Me includes 2CD, 1LP Silver vinyl, deluxe 2LP red vinyl and HD digital formats and features b-sides, rare tracks, remixes and alternate versions of tracks.

Speaking about the new Bleed Like Me expanded reissue, Shirley Manson says:

This album was tricky to make and resulted in the band taking a 5 year hiatus shortly after it was released. However over the years it has become a mainstay of our discography so we decided to finally make it available on vinyl due to the many pained pleas from our fans’.

Bleed Like Me was a top 5 album chart hit in the UK, US, Australia and the European Billboard chart upon its initial release in April 2005. The album featured four singles, Why Do You Love Me which was a top 10 single in the UK, Bleed Like Me and Sex Is Not The Enemy which both went on to be regulars in the band’s live shows and Run Baby Run, which was accompanied by a Sophie Muller directed music video.

Garbage are playing a number of festival shows this year, including European and UK dates at Mad Cool in Madrid (10th – 13th July) and TRNSMT in Glasgow (12th-14th July). The band’s new Bleed Like Me expanded reissue is out on 5th April.
