The memory will live on.

 

Today is indeed a sad day for me. When you have some success doing something that you love you never really think about writing a statement about that something coming to an end. Well that dream that we have had as Bleeding Through has come to an end. 
 
I think I can speak for the rest of my bandmates in saying that we always hoped it would end on our terms and it has. 
 
We have been fortunate to have a strong fan base worldwide and have brought joy to many and pissed off many more. BT was always a band that wore the emotion of the music on our sleeves. We cared about everyone like family that ever took the time to listen to our band, support our merchandise and go to our shows. S
 
ince 1999 we have been blessed to be able to tour the world, record seven records with some great musical minds, tour with amazing bands and people,  work with people with character such as management, booking agents and road crew. 
 
Most importantly, we made lasting friends from this journey. We have been honored to be part of a expanding the musical movement of heavy music and hope to be remembered as a benchmark and pioneer of a specific style of music. 
 
We have been a band since 1999 and many of us just had life catch up with us in the way of marriages, kids, businesses and other endeavors. We can no longer dedicate what we need to to keep BT going. 
 
Personally I feel doing this band in a part time fashion is not what this band is about and and feel like we have always been an all or nothing band. With that being said and because we have established a world wide following over the last 14 years we want to give us and those people one more chance to share in this music together. We are setting up farewell tours. Dates will be up and promoted very soon. 
 
To those who supported this band: It has been an honor.

    Sad to see an amazing band come to an end but everything must. Out of all the bands I’ve had the pleasure of sharing the stage with, opening for you guys on the tour with Day of Contempt has always been on the top of the list. Not just because of the music but because you really made us feel welcome and when I ran into you later on at the tour with Every Time I Die and BTBAM, couldn’t believe you remembered me and gave me a hug. You’ve shown character in all your projects and I will always be a fan of someone dedicated to their work. Whether it be music, fitness, or whatever the future may bring. I was hoping to say hello at the Fit Expo today but you weren’t there. Keep it up man.

  4. Thanks for playing badass music, man. Ill always remember your shows being some of the best shows I’ve been to.

  5. Sad to see you guys go. I still remember my first time seeing you guys at Mr. MUGGS in Ypsilanti, MI.(1999) then multiple times after that. Good luck on everything in life. Love the blog. Love the RA shirts, gotta get me one soon.
