BLEEDING THROUGH was forced to cancel last Saturday”s (on July 28) concert at the House Of Blues in San Diego, California with DEMON HUNTER and CANCER BATS after singer Brandan Schieppati underwent emergency orthodontic surgery.
Commented the band: “Symptoms started to appear [on Friday] and put him in a no-choice position [Saturday] morning. [We] can assure you from the many messages he has sent the band saying ‘I am so sorry’ he would do it if he could. We all apologize for any trouble this could have caused and appreciate your support.”
BLEEDING THROUGH‘s new album, “The Great Fire”, was released on January 31 via Rise Records. The band’s guitarist, Dave Nassie, described the CD in a recent interview as “a mix of everything. It has a strong, classic SLAYER element to it — because, you know, who doesn’t like that? That’s something as a band that we all like. It has a heavy black metal and thrash influence in it. This record is an example of what BLEEDING THROUGH like to do. We follow each other. Nobody really picked a direction and said, ‘Hey, we want to sound like this.’ Brandan came in with a bunch of really aggressive songs, [Guitarist] Brian [Leppke] had a bunch of aggressive songs. My songs kind of lightened it up a little bit, because we started listening back and realized that there were like 15 songs that were just pissed with no break in it at all. [laughs]”
