Reflecting on the band’s debut record, Bastille frontman 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.


He added: “10 years on, we wanted to put something special together to celebrate the album, whilst not messing with it too much. 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).”

The double album is also available on clear vinyl and includes a 7” vinyl featuring the three demos; ‘Racing Heart’, an early version of the single ‘Laura Palmer’ and beloved b-side ‘Poet’. The record also includes a unique 12×12 insert featuring alternative artwork, handwritten annotations from each band member, and an abundance of unseen images.

‘Bad Blood X’ is set to be released on July 14 via Virgin Records. You can pre-order here.

Bastille’s debut album peaked at Number One on the UK Albums chart and was the biggest-selling digital album of 2013. ‘Bad Blood’ hosted the international hit single ‘Pompeii’, which peaked at Number Two on the UK Singles Chart and became the 11th best-selling song that year.
