Bad Blood was re-issued on 25 November 2013 as a double album called All This Bad Blood. The first disc is a reissue of Bad Blood, and the second disc is split into two parts, titled All This Bad Blood and Other People's Heartache. All This Bad Blood contains four songs which were previously released as B-sides from the singles of Bad Blood and songs that were featured on The Extended Cut version of Bad Blood. Other People's Heartache is a selection from the Bastille's two mixtapes, Other People's Heartache and Other People's Heartache, Pt. 2, and also contains two completely new tracks recorded in the last few weeks, "The Draw" and "Skulls".

The lead single promoting the album, "Of the Night", was released on 11 October 2013.

Lyrics Edit

Don't talk to strangers.

Oh, in the strangest dreams, walking by your side
It is the hole you impose upon your life
When you're out, loneliness, it crawls up in the ground
It's what you feel, but can't articulate out loud.

Oh you go to sleep on your own and you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone
It's a last resort

All you want is someone onto whom you can cling
Your mother warned of strangers and the dangers they may bring
Your dreams and memories are blurring into one
The scenes which hold the waking world slowly come undone

You'll come undone

Oh, you go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It's a last resort

You go to sleep on your own
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone, it's a last resort

Oh

Don't talk to strangers,
And don't walk into danger.
Don't talk to strangers,
And don't walk into danger.

Oh you go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It's a last resort

You go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It's a last resort

Don't talk to strangers

Oh you go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It's a last resort...
