Influential alternative rock icons Garbage have released the expanded reissue of their seminal fourth album Bleed Like Me, available on vinyl for the first time since it was originally released in 2005.

Fully remastered for 2024, this expanded reissue of 2005’s Bleed Like Me includes 2CD, 1LP white 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 said: “This album was tricky to make and resulted in the band taking a five-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 five 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 (July 10 – 13) and TRNSMT in Glasgow (July 12-14).

Last we heard from Garbage was in April of 2023, when the group shared its take on Siouxsie And The Banshees’ 1985 song “Cities In Dust” as part of a Record Store Day release.

The band released a new EP titled Witness To Your Love for last year’s global celebration of independent record stores. Weeks after that special physical release, the EP emerged on digital platforms – including the Banshees cover.

Garbage’s spin on “Cities In Dust” stays largely faithful to the original but adds flashes of searing guitar lines. At the end of the song, Manson adds her own lyrical nod to the track’s original creators, whispering, “I love you, Siouxsie,” through the last lashings of sound.
