Wither Blister Burn & Peel is the second album released on Columbia Records by the American industrial rock band Stabbing Westward. The album was recorded in New York State in late 1995, and was released on January 4, 1996 in New York City and Los Angeles. The album was released throughout the rest of the United States on January 26, 1996, and includes the singles "What Do I Have To Do?" and "Shame", which helped push the album to gold status.
"What Do I Have To Do?" was the band's first hit, thanks to heavy MTV exposure, first reaching the Modern Rock Tracks chart, where it would peak at #11, then achieving even greater success on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it peaked at #7. "Shame" was released soon after, matching "What Do I Have To Do"'s #7 peak on the Mainstream Rock chart, and peaking at #14 on the Modern Rock chart.
