Breed to Breathe is an EP by English extreme metal band Napalm Death, released in 1997 through Earache on CD.[3]

The album is printed as CD Extra and contains a data track which features the video clip for the song "Breed to Breathe" and other band-related content such as a discography and a band history.[2] Due to the depiction of graphic material the video clip prompted the Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft, the German motion picture rating system organization, to ban it in Germany and even to obtain a court decision that declared the clip illegal.[4] Many media around the world also refused to feature the clip.[5]

Both bands that deliver a Napalm Death song on the sixth track are winners of a demo cover version competition.[6]
