Orange County, CA, based Bleeding Through was formed in 1998 under the name Breakneck, featuring Eighteen Visions' members Brandon Schieppati and Scott Danough. The band made its live debut as supporting act to Throwdown and Adamantium. Things were going well but some of the members wanted to go in a different direction and expand the hardcore sound to metal, so they changed their name to Bleeding Through and began writing new songs.
At the same time guitarist Javier Van Huss left and bassist Chad Tafolla took over his part. Bassist Marc Jackson was incorporated and the band released a 5- song demo. Marc then quit the band, so Bleeding Through recruited Vijay to play bass and added a brand new member- keyboardist Molly Street. Then they went to Doubletime Studios in San Diego to record the full length CD "'Dust to Ashes", which was released in March 2001. It was reckoned as a Cannibal Corpse, At The Gates and Hatebreed crossover and featured 5 new songs and all of the demo re- recorded.
In summer 2001, the band went through yet another lineup change- guitarist Chad left and Brian Leppke joined and Mick from 18 Visions took over the bass. Another album followed, "Portrait of the Goddess", released in 2002. The band then signed with New Jersey-based Trustkill Records.
Bleeding Through's third full length album "This Is Love, This Is Murderous" was released in September 2003 and received great response from fans and media. The following summer, the band was one of the second stage acts on Ozzfest 2004. Later on the same year, Bleeding Through was featured on Headbangers Ball Tour 2004, alongside Himsa, Arch Enemy and Cradle Of Filth.
After going through many member changes and finally finding the sound they wanted to create, the current lineup is: Brandan Schieppati (vocals), Brian Leppke (guitar), Scott Danough (guitar), Derek Youngsma (drums), Ryan Wombacher (bass) and Marta (keyboards).

Bleeding Through will focus on smaller clubs in New Orleans, Albany, Las Vegas and other cities where the monstrous tour with heavy metal titans Slayer and iconoclast Manson will not hit during their days off. The Manson/Slayer tour and off-date headlining shows will coincide with the worldwide release of the band's new single, "Line in the Sand."
With a video directed by Dan Dobi (Cannibal Corpse, Paramore), "Line in the Sand" is the latest track to be released from The Truth, Bleeding Through's newest album which has been hailed by Revolver, Alternative Press, Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Billboard, Outburn, Metal Edge and other publications the world over.
The band kicked off the album's release last year with a massive headlining tour, followed by a co-headline slot on the Ozzfest second stage (their second Ozzfest), a fall tour with Senses Fail and Saosin, a European tour, and more.
Confirmed Bleeding Through off-dates (all with War Of Ages) during the Marilyn Manson/ Slayer tour are as follows: More...
"I can't say how excited we are about this tour," said singer Brandan Schieppati. "These are two bands that we have all loved for years, with really diverse fans. Our band certainly draws a little from both sides of the line."
"Slayer is a huge influence on all of us," commented guitarist Brian Leppke, who is wearing a Slayer t-shirt in the promo photos for the band's 2003 breakthrough album, This is Love, This is Murderous.
The band's keyboard player, Marta, will be featured on the cover of Revolver Magazine's next issue, which hits stands later this month.

Bleeding Through has officially announced the departure of guitarist Scott Danough, stating: "As some of you may have heard, there has been a member change in Bleeding Through, the first member change in over three years. Scott Danough is no longer a member of Bleeding Through. We felt that we had grown apart and it was time for both parties to move on. We wish him the best."
As publicized yesterday amidst news of I Killed The Prom Queen's break-up, IKTPQ guitarist Jona Weinhofen will replace Danough.
Meanwhile, Bleeding Through continues to write material for their next release.
Australian metallers I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN have called it a day. In a statement announcing their decision to go separate ways, the band write, "The final nail in the coffin came when Jona was asked to join USA metal group BLEEDING THROUGH as second guitarist. This, coupled with our inability to find a replacement vocalist, aided the decision to end the band.
"We would all like to sincerely thank all our friends and family and our label's Stomp, Metal Blade, Golf and Howling Bull Records for their ongoing support of IKTPQ and most of all we would like to thank all the fans that made the last seven years the most amazing years of our lives. We feel that we made a good impact on the Australian and worldwide music scenes. We also apologise for the cancellation of our USA tour dates.
"The band will announce a final farewell Australian tour in the coming months."

BLEEDING THROUGH's new video, "Line in the Sand", will make its exclusive debut on Music Choice On Demand next month! The cable channel, which specializes in video-on-demand service and is available in over 20 million homes, will exclusively broadcast the video April 16 through April 22.
"Line in the Sand" is the third video from BLEEDING THROUGH's latest album, "The Truth". The album was called one of the year's "most important" heavy metal releases by Billboard and garnered the band the covers of Outburn and Metal Edge. The video was directed by Dan Dobi (CANNIBAL CORPSE, PARAMORE).
"We love the other videos from this album but they were more story-driven," points out singer Brandan Schieppati. "This song is dark, moody and very emotional, it's the ballad on the album, and we wanted a more performance-based clip to capture that vibe. Dan did an incredible job!" More...

On Sunday, July 23, the annual metal-gods tour known as Ozzfest, minus Ozzy, of course, rolled through Indianapolis, and the event passed without much out of the ordinary. The day saw a couple of fights, a lot of marijuana, a whole lot of ignorant people who harassed event staff at every turn, and a lot of people waiting to see the last three bands of the night without any knowledge of who played the second and early main stages—a typical Ozzfest.
