Last Known Status: Active
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 posted a guest blog on Headbanger's Blog announcing the song titles for their upcoming album, "Declaration," and revealing a relationship of disharmonies with their current label, Trustkill Records. Some excerpts from the blog follow:
It has been months and we have kept silent. But this latest slap in the face from our supposed record label has pushed us over the edge. We just read on the Internet that Josh Grabelle plans to release a “special edition” of our 2006 album “The Truth” one month before releasing our new album. Let it be known that Bleeding Through is 100% against this so-called “special” edition. We did not approve the title, cover artwork (whatever it is), track-listing or bonus features for this transparent and obvious cash-grab of a re-release from a record label that despite selling a quarter of a million of our albums worldwide is having problems.
Trustkill no longer employs his sales guy, his art director or his publicist. “Trustkill” is now Josh and one employee in his basement, as far as we can tell. We have kept silent about the fact that we made our new album with a loan from our singer’s dad, a loan from our management and less than 25% of our recording fund from Trustkill. They breached our contract (not for the first time) on March 31st, 2008 when we hit the studio without proper funding and have failed to cure the breach.
Several labels have contacted Josh to help put out our album but he has jerked most of them around and has not come to terms on a deal to get this album out, which we are SO proud of, with the push it deserves. As of right now we have no idea who is supposed to be releasing our album overseas, or even really in the US for that matter. Josh’s website says our album is coming out in August but he hasn’t paid for it so we don’t see how that’s possible. For years now, we’ve watched photographers, graphic designers, equipment companies, bus companies and producers struggle to get paid their invoices and wait for months and months before being compensated for their work.
In better news, here are the song titles (for the first time anywhere) from DECLARATION, which we hope actually comes out someday! We want you all to hear it so bad. We know Trustkill doesn’t have the resources to get it out there and we’re prepared for low sales as a result, BUT, there’s NO WAY we’re handing over a master without the minimum money that was due to everyone so we can pay off Devin (Townsend, producer for 'Declaration'), Brandan’s dad, our manager and credit cards.
Josh PROVE US WRONG by meeting your obligations, or LET US OFF YOUR RECORD LABEL ENTIRELY.

Orange County, California's BLEEDING THROUGH has set "Declaration" as the title of its fifth studio album, tentatively due in August via Trustkill Records. The follow-up to 2006's "The Truth" will be recorded beginning late March with producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, LAMB OF GOD, SOILWORK, DARKEST HOUR) and is said to be a "concept album" about the rigors of being away from home.
"Every song will be named after a different city or state," BLEEDING THROUGH frontman Brandan Schieppati tells Revolver in the magazine's May 2008 issue. "There are definitely places when we're traveling where every time we go there, we're like, 'Fuck, why do we have to be here?' Like, we'll be in France and all of a sudden we'll feel totally insignificant. You get the feeling that people's eyes are just burining a hole through you."
According to Schieppati, "Declaration" will be heavier than its predecessor. "I think it bridges the gap between 'The Truth' and [2003's] 'This Is Love, This Is Murderous'," he tells Revolver. "The melodies are darker, the riffs are heavier. We just wrote a really aggressive record that encompasses everything we've ever tried to do as a band and then raised the bar a notch or two."
The Download website has announced some more bands for this years festival. Metal and rock fans who have been previously disapointed and even angry will probably not find any comfort in the latest batch of acts confirmed for the festival. Bullet For My Valentine, Madina Lake, Fightstar, Seether and Biffy Clyro have been confirmed as the latest additions to the British festival.
The full line up so far is as follows:
The Offspring (headliners)
Lost Prophets (headliners)
Judas Priest (special guests)
A Day To Remember
Black Dahlia Murder
Bullet For My Valentine
Children Of Bodom
Coheed And Cambria
The Devil Wears Prada
Dillinger Escape Plan

Bleeding Through will headline a series of intimate club shows during the "off-dates" of their upcoming North American tour with Marilyn Manson and Slayer. War Of Ages will support Bleeding Through at each of the shows.
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.
In related news, Bleeding Through's Brandan Schieppati and Ryan Wombacher appear as guest vocalists on the new Tiger Army album, 'Music From Regions Beyond', in stores on June 5th.

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...
Two songs from the forthcoming SICK OF IT ALL tribute album — HATEBREED's version of "Ratpack" and BOUNCING SOULS' rendition of "Good Lookin' Out" — are available for listening on the Sick Of It All's MySpace page for the CD.
