Background[edit]

In the beginning of 2013, there were major rumors claiming Blood on the Dance Floor has split when they withdrew from the Soundwave Festival. However, it turned out to be a hoax.[1][2] Vanity completely denied all rumors of Blood on the Dance Floor disestablishing.[1]

The group released Bad Blood on September 3, 2013.[3] On February 18, 2013 the lead single "I Refuse to Sink! (Fuck the Fame)" was released,[2] followed by the second single "Crucified By Your Lies",[4] followed by the third single, "Something Grimm", on July 2, 2013.[5]
