Garbage To Reissue Expanded Version Of Bleed Like Me

Out on Friday, April 5th, is an expanded reissue of “Bleed Like Me,” the fourth studio album by Garbage — originally released on April 11th, 2005. The new edition features the original 11-song set plus 17 additional tracks including outtakes,, B-Sides and the non-album single “Tell Me Where It Hurts,” which came out during 2007.

Frontwoman Shirley Manson tells us that the reissue is the product of a contract covering the Garbage archives as well as new material: 

“That’s BMG Records, who we are signed to worldwide. They wanted to release the ‘Bleed Like Me’ vinyl for the first time ever, and we thought it would be a cool idea for the fans and for us ’cause we don’t have a vinyl version in our record collections, either. You do something to please yourself and hopefully it pleases others, and our fans have kind of been hankering for this for a while, so we are finally conceding to please them.” SOUNDCUE :18

“Bleed Like Me” debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 when it was released. It was the group’s highest charting album ever, and only one to hit the Top 5.

Dave Grohl joined Garbage on the album to play drums on the opening track, “Bad Boyfriend.” 

Garbage is currently working on its next album, a follow-up to 2021’s “No Gods No Masters,” and begins a summer tour of Europe on June 26 in Milan, Italy.
