Fire Like This is the second album by Brighton-based rock band Blood Red Shoes, released on 1 March 2010 in the UK and Europe through V2 Records. The album was recorded and mixed in late summer 2009 as a co-production with Mike Crossey, and was preceded by the free download single "Colours Fade", which was released on their website on 25 November 2009, and "Light It Up", which was released on 7" vinyl and via download on 22 February 2010. In January 2010, Blood Red Shoes started putting songs on their website for streaming one by one. By 26 February, the entire album was available to listen to on the site. The album was released in the USA and Canada on 12 October 2010.

On two tracks of the recording, "When We Wake" and "Colours Fade", the Springtime is used, a custom guitar with multiple outputs especially built for Carter in 2008.

The song "When We Wake" was used in late 2010 on the TV Show Huge (TV series), "Colours Fade" appears in an episode of CSI: New York season 8.
