Bleeding Through is the self-titled sixth studio album by American metalcore band Bleeding Through. The album was released through Rise Records on April 13, 2010; the album is the first to be released by the band through Rise Records due to their shift to Rise after being open and public about their dislike for Trustkill in 2008, Bleeding Through announced their split with the label shortly after releasing Declaration. In late 2009, the band announced their signing to Rise Records. Craig Ericson, President of Rise expressed his excitement to work with Bleeding Through stating, "We've been huge fans since they released an album on Indecision Records. Having Bleeding Through in the family is a dream come true. We both share extreme passion for music and can't wait to show the world what we can achieve together as a team." The band was mutually excited to work with Rise, due to the label's enthusiasm to help the band grow and reach their potential. Vocalist Brandan Schieppati stated, "After 10 years, we have been content with the fan base, the familiarity of touring and the comfort of knowing what to expect at every show.
Rise wants to build on that."Bleeding Through is the first studio album to feature Dave Nassie, who has played in punk rock groups No Use for a Name, 22 Jacks, Suicidal Tendencies and the funk metal band Infectious Grooves. Nassie replaced former guitarist Jona Weinhofen, who left Bleeding Through after two years due to Trustkill not paying royalties and returned home to Australia. Bleeding Through debuted at number 143 on the US Billboard 200 with 3,700 copies sold in the first week; this is lower than Bleeding Through's previous album, 2008's Declaration, which peaked at number 101 and sold 6,000 copies in the first week.

Line in the Sand (Bleeding Through song)
"Line in the Sand" is the third single by Orange County metalcore band Bleeding Through from their 2006 album The Truth. It was released in 2007 through Trustkill Records, it is the only slow song on the album, described by frontman Brandan Schieppati as "dark and emotional, it's the ballad on the album". According to Schieppati, the song is about a relationship he was in with someone who made him feel "ugly and empty". Unlike the videos for "Kill to Believe" and "Love in Slow Motion", the music video for "Line in the Sand" is not story-driven, it is the band playing the song, it was directed by Dan Dobi and Shane Drake. "We love the other videos from this album," Schieppati explained. "But we hadn't made a cut-loose-and-destroy performance video in a while, not since'Love Lost...' from the last album, so we went for it."The video debuted on Music Choice. It was broadcast April 16 through April 22; the music video version of the song has re-recorded vocals and the guitar solo differs from the one heard on the album version.
It features keyboards similar to the theme song Lux Aeterna, the theme song from the film Requiem for a Dream, composed by Clint Mansell. Line in the Sand video on YouTube Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Declaration (Bleeding Through album)
Declaration is the fifth album by American metalcore band Bleeding Through. The song's titles are named after different cities. Frontman Brandan Schieppati commented, "There are 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 insignificant. You get the feeling that people's eyes are just burning a hole through you."The album was scheduled for release in August. Schieppati claims it will be heavier than the band's 2003 release, This Is Love, This Is Murderous, bridges the gap between This Love and The Truth, "The melodies are darker, the riffs are heavier. We just wrote a aggressive record that encompasses everything we've tried to do as a band and raised the bar a notch or two."During the Soundwave the band previewed a new song from the album called "Orange County Blonde And Blue". The song can be watched on YouTube. Bleeding Through stated in an MTV blog they have finished the record and released details of the album, but do not intend to hand the masters over to Trustkill until numerous issues be resolved.
This leaves the supposed August 2008 release date up in the air. Subsequently, they asked to be dropped from Trustkill in the same blog. Whilst playing at Download Festival in June 2008 Bleeding Through's front man Brandan Schieppati said with regards to the albums "We are having trouble with our record label, so when the new record comes out, steal it, download it illegally, do what you fucking want, as long as you the fans hear it". On June 12, one track from the new album named "Orange County Blonde And Blue" was uploaded to the band's official MySpace page, it is unclear how long the track will remain on the page, as the band have stated it is there "for a limited time". It has been made apparent by joining an official fan site called Dearly Demented, supported by the band, a person will receive the song "Germany". Many I Killed The Prom Queen fans were disappointed to hear newly recruited guitarist, Jona Weinhofen, would not be contributing any vocals to the album. On August 21, Bleeding Through announced they would be filming a video for "Death Anxiety" that weekend.
It will be directed by Dave Brodsky in California. The album sold just under 6,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at #104 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Bleeding Through is an American metalcore band from Orange County, California. Formed in 1999, the band blended influences stemming from modern hardcore punk, symphonic black metal, melodic death metal. Although the band was labeled as metalcore, when Brandan Schieppati was asked if he considered Bleeding Through a hardcore band, he said: "I think we're a hardcore band and I'll never say we are a metal band, we're all hardcore kids and we came from the hardcore scene. Ours is just a different version of hardcore, we're trying to do something which adds a different variety to the hardcore scene, sounding the same way for so long."In 2004, Revolver magazine hailed Bleeding Through as one of eight bands ushering in the "Future of Metal" cover story, Spin called Bleeding Through an "artist to watch" in the magazine's February 2004 issue. Bleeding Through was formed in 1999 in California; the band's roots can be traced back to 1998, when Breakneck was founded by Brandan "Ohrly" Schieppati, Javier Van Huss, guitarist Scott Danough, bass guitarist Chad Tafolla and drummer Troy Born.
They made their live debut as the supporting act to Adamantium. As the band witnessed lineup changes, the departure of Van Huss and subsequent recruitment of Marc Jackson to cover bass whilst Tafolla reverted to guitar, they decided to expand their current hardcore sound and added elements of death metal to their music; the origin of the band's name was explained in an interview as follows: "Well, it is summed up by the explanation that whether black, red, yellow, religious preference, straight or gay, we all bleed the same, we bleed through this life the same. Thus Bleeding Through."Their 2000's demo was followed by a full-length album released through Prime Directive Records entitled Dust to Ashes in April 2001. Just prior to entering the studio, Vijay Kumar took the bass position and Molly Street enrolled as keyboard player; the addition of keyboards was an unconventional move for a metalcore act as it brought some black metal influences into the music. Just as the album saw issue Born quit the band but a quickfire substitute was located in Derek Youngsma of Cast in Stone repute.
Severing ties with both Eighteen Visions and Throwdown, Schieppati opted to pursue Bleeding Through as a priority upon completion of the Indecision Records 2002 offering Portrait of the Goddess. At this juncture the group comprised the guitar pairing of Scott Danough and Brian Leppke, bassist Ryan Wombacher and drummer Derek Youngsma. After these two underdistributed albums, Bleeding Through signed to a larger label, Trustkill Records in 2003, releasing their third full-length album in September of the same year. Promoting the Ulrich Wild produced This is Love, This is Murderous they embarked upon US nationwide touring, opening for AFI; these dates had propelled the band to national attention albeit for all the wrong reasons. Traveling from Utah to a show in Colorado the group's vehicle hit black ice on the highway, spinning out of control and slamming into a truck, flipped over. A mobile TV unit, there to report on another crash, caught the entire incident on film as their equipment trailer rolled and exploded, showering their instruments and gear across the road.
The band escaped with only minor injuries, but due to this accident they had to drop off the "Pure Hatred" tour with Chimaira, Soilwork and As I Lay Dying. The KSL-TV footage of the accident taking place can be viewed in Real Media format on the channel's official site; the dramatic televised footage was broadcast everywhere from CNN Headline News, Good Morning America, NBC News and The Weather Channel. This Is Love, This Is Murderous received favorable reviews from the mainstream media; the metal community praised it as well to a greater extent, with Deadtide.com calling it "a mature offering from still a young band that will only get better and bigger in the future", Metalrage giving it an 85 score out of 100, The videos for "Love Lost in a Hail of Gun Fire" and "On Wings of Lead" became staples on MTV2's Headbangers Ball and on Fuse TV's Uranium as well. It is Bleeding Through's most successful album to date with more than 125,000 copies sold; the following year kicked off with the band's "Mutilation Tour", which culminated in a sold-out performance at The Glasshouse, near their Orange County home, captured on a live DVD, the next major step in Bleeding Through's career was a spot on Ozzfest 2004, sharing the second stage alongside headline act Slipknot and fellow supports Unearth, Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Lacuna Coil and Atreyu.
They earned the direct support position on MTV2's third "Headbanger's Ball: The Tour" in November, featuring Cradle of Filth, Arch Enemy and Himsa as touring partners. In an unexpected move, Bleeding Through donated their rendition of "Rocket Queen" to the Guns N' Roses tribute album Bring You to Your Knees released by Law of Inertia Records in March 2004. A 2005 re-issue of This Is Love, This Is Murderous added three bonus live tracks, "Revenge I Seek", "Rise" and "Our Enemies", two music videos and a ten-minute documentary. Following this, the band embarked upon European touring in February 2005, supported by Swedes Cult of Luna. In April the group, working with Rob Caggiano as producer, ensconced themselves in Cher

In 2012, Weinhofen had a guest solo spot on Mors Principium Est's album... And Death Said Live, on the song "What the Future Holds". In January 2013, Weinhofen left Bring Me the Horizon for undisclosed reasons, which made way for I Killed the Prom Queen to become a full-time band once again.
