Bon Iver will belatedly celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2009 EP, Blood Bank, with a reissue featuring new live renditions of the four tracks on the record. The reissue will arrive March 27th via Jagjaguwar.

Bon Iver previewed the EP with a live version of “Blood Bank,” recorded at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, on Halloween 2018. Just as the Blood Bank EP found Bon Iver beginning to stretch beyond the in-the-woods acoustic tunes of Justin Vernon’s 2007 debut, For Emma, Forever Ago, this recent live rendition is even more expansive, with thumping drums and skittering guitars that help carry the song to more ecstatic heights.

The Blood Bank reissue will feature additional live performances recorded in Dallas, London and Paris, as well as new liner notes from Ryan Matteson. The record is available to pre-order on vinyl, CD and digital.

Bon Iver released their most recent album, i, ilast August. This weekend at the Grammys, the LP will compete for Album of the Year and Best Alternative Album, while “Hey, Ma” is also up for Record of the Year.
