In October, 2008, Dine Alone Records announced a special 2-disc limited edition of Bring Me Your Love to be released on December 2, 2008. Only 6000 copies were made available. In Canada, when the record label put up the album on pre-sale on November 20, 2008, so many fans tried to pre-order it that they crashed the store's website.
Gordon Downie, of The Tragically Hip makes an appearance on the album, lending his vocals to the third verse on the second single, "Sleeping Sickness" which was listed for 9 weeks on the Canadian Hot 100.

The album is named after a short story by Charles Bukowski. It is also a line sung in the closing track, "As Much as I Ever Could".
When interviewed by Alter The Press! in October 2009, Dallas revealed "Bring Me Your Love" will see a vinyl release with no release date scheduled yet.
Famous quotes containing the words bring me, love and/or bring:
“bring me here again!
I am just the same as when
Our days were a joy, and our paths through flowers.”
—Thomas Hardy (18401928)
“The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often dont really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, its because they do not know them.”
—Mother Teresa (b. 1910)
“The self ... might be regarded as a sort of citadel of the mind, fortified without and containing selected treasures within, while love is an undivided share in the rest of the universe. In a healthy mind each contributes to the growth of the other: what we love intensely or for a long time we are likely to bring within the citadel, and to assert as part of ourself. On the other hand, it is only on the basis of a substantial self that a person is capable of progressive sympathy or love.”
—Charles Horton Cooley (18641929)
