According to a posting on BLEEDING THROUGH‘s Facebook page, the band’s upcoming appearance at the Hit The Deck festival — set to take place on April 20 and April 21 at various venues in Bristol and adding Nottingham, England — will be part of their “final European tour.”
Responding a fan question about the above-mentioned message and whether it means the end of the band, BLEEDING THROUGH guitarist Dave Nassie wrote: “I respect my bandmates and all the hard work they put into the band before I joined. Unfortunately, yes, man. I have been open about how I don’t want it to happen. But, like I said, I didn’t build it. Just have loved every minute of it and one person can’t keep it alive, as much as I have tried. Please come out and see the band I have truly loved being a part of one last time.”

BLEEDING THROUGH was forced to drop off the North American tour with DEMON HUNTER and CANCER BATS afer the band’s vocalist, Brandan Schieppati, had to undergo and emergency orthodontic surgery.
BLEEDING THROUGH‘s new album, “The Great Fire”, was released on January 31, 2012 via Rise Records. Dave Nassie described the CD in an 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]”
