Bleeding Through to Embark on North American Farewell Tour
Orange County blackened metalcorists Bleeding Through announced their split in January of this year. They’ve already visited Europe and Australia for the final time on tour, and now, they will bid farewell to the U.S. this November. They will be officially closing the book on an impressive career that saw them as one of the dominant bands in the ’00s New Wave of American Heavy Metal.
The “Long Live Bleeding Through/Farewell to the United States Tour” will feature support from Winds of Plague, Oceano, Gideon and Sworn In. It’s shaping up to be a satisfying sendoff for the keyboard-laced mosh metallers.
Bleeding Through’s final record was 2012′s ‘The Great Fire,’ issued via Rise. The group’s final lineup is comprised of founding member Brandan Schieppati (ex-Eighteen Visions) on vocals; Dave Nassie (ex-No Use For A Name) on lead guitar since 2009; Brian Leppke on rhythm guitar; Derek Youngsma on drums since 2001; Ryan Wombacher on bass since 2002; and Marta Demmel (formerly Peterson) on keyboards since 2003. Band co-founder Scott Danough, who left the band back in 2007, has joined them on tour all year as they make the buh-bye rounds.
Tickets go for the final tour go on sale Monday, Sept. 9.
