Bleeding Through has posted a track-by-track break down of their new self-titled album through Alt Press. An excerpt from the break down follows:

A Resurrection: This is an instrumental piece Marta [Peterson, keyboards] and Dave [Nassie, guitar] wrote. The reason behind the title is, basically, the band have been around for quite a long time, and the last few years didn't end up [going] so well. So I guess the whole concept behind the song is just a new beginning and refreshing the idea of being in a band for more than 10 years and still having fun and making a career at it.

Anti-Hero: Every single song [on this album] has to do with the past and being a band for a decade, overcoming adversity and being labeled as a trend. This song is about [younger] bands coming up to you and saying that you're an inspiration to them and they thank you for your existence. You just take a step back and look at their band and don't agree with the way they run it and it's weird that they see you as an inspiration. I just don't agree with the way a lot of bands these days run their band.

Your Abandonment: Basically, this song is sort of about the heartbreak of being in a band. There are a lot of things that go into a band and doing this and it's a heartbreaking experience. You meet new people and they say, 'Thank you,' and that they love you, and two years later, they're gone. You see people who are more into this music because of trends [than the actual music] and that's hard.

Fifteen Minutes: This song is about how, you know, there's been, like, three or four times people have said we're just a trendy band. But how can you be a trend several times? Isn't it just once and then over? People always tell us we're a trend band, but we're still going.

Salvation Never Found: This is basically about the sacrifice of [playing music] for so long. It's about some of the things you go through as a band. I kind of feel like the moments I've shared with people and places have been great, and some have been unrewarding. I've missed out on so much in life at home and with friends and being a part of people's lives. I want to do this for some sort of salvation and I'm still searching for that. Sometimes you sort of feel like it's not worth it.

Booo...how about you just re-release "This is love, This is Murderous" with some extra crap. I haven't been able to purchase anything by this band since then. Had so much potential to be a stellar band. Mixing (kinda) black metal, with hardcore was cool. But have released nothing interesting since then...
