Bon Iver Announce Blood Bank (10th Anniversary Edition) Reissue Out March 27th

Bon Iver’s Blood Bank is “arguably the most consequential EP of the 2000s” (Stereogum), and now, the group announces its 10th Anniversary reissue. Released 11 years ago yesterday (we know), and coming March 27th on Jagjaguwar, the package pairs each of the original four songs with brand new live renditions recorded during shows in Stockholm, Dallas, London, and Paris.

Today, the band shares “Blood Bank” from Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe on Halloween, 2018 – listen below.. (artwork by Eric Timothy Carlson, animation by Aaron Anderson).

Similar to how the first Blood Bank followed For Emma, Forever Ago, the reissue forecasts the evolution of Bon Iver as the project expands to new breadths of sound and community. In its new liner notes, Wisconsinite Ryan Matteson reflects on the mantras of Blood Bank and the growth of Bon Iver, writing how songs like “Woods” heralded “not just a new direction but a new beginning entirely. A place where boundaries don’t exist. It was a signal change of things to come, laying the groundwork for new collaborations.”

Bon Iver performed music from Blood Bank throughout their 2019 arena tour supporting new album i,i. That tour will extend through November 2020 with a series of just-added European dates – find them all  below.

At the GRAMMY Awards this weekend, i,i is up for Album of the Year, Record of the Year (“Hey, Ma”), Best Alternative Music Album, and Best Recording Package (Bon Iver Art Directors Eric Timothy Carlson & Aaron Anderson).
