Bleed The Dream Recruits Periphery Drummer Matt Halpern For New Album

After a Spring announcement that the band would be returning with a new record this year - effectively ending an 8 year hiatus - Bleed the Dream officially confirms that Periphery drummer Matt Halpern will be joining to play drums on this new record.

Late drummer Scott Gottlieb, who passed away from Cancer on April 10th, 2005, will be there in spirit and is the main motivation of the reunion. The remaining band members had this to say:

“We have a really special surprise for fans. We are going to record a new album in tribute to Scott and have a special replacement planned to take his seat. We tried our best to find someone who played similar to Scott, as well as someone that’s playing was what Scott would have enjoyed. This album will be the darkest, most passionate, and heaviest to date, with a fall release and tours to follow.”

In honor of Scott, Bleed The Dream will donate a percentage of the profits from the new album to cancer research and to family members with loved ones currently fighting cancer. You can keep in touch with the band, check for tour dates and stay up to date with record release info at the Bleed The Dream Facebook profile.
