In 2018, Orange County metalcore progenitors Bleeding Through returned after six years with their comeback album Love Will Kill All. At the time, Bleeding Through's style of metalcore was just beginning to trickle back into the modern underground, but in the four years since, the band's mark has become exponentially more apparent in young rising acolytes like Dying Wish, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Foreign Hands and many others.
Therefore, it's a great time for them to reappear, and they've done so with their first new song in four years, "Rage," a metalcore banger that lives up to its name with Bleeding Through's signature mix of black-metal keys and mosh-fueling chugs. Listen above via YouTube.
Frontman Brandan Schieppati commented, "Screaming into a microphone and playing music with my friends after 20 plus years and after a pandemic seemed like an impossibility. Lo and behold, here we are creating music again. Personally, the last few years has been a total mental battle. This music is my weapon against doubt and depression. The song 'Rage' was created with the anger and frustration built up over the last few years. This song is us joining the fight to have music heal a struggling world. 'Rage' is the sound of 20-plus years as a band and years of built-up aggression. No bullshit. Straight-up Bleeding Through."
No details on whether this will lead to another LP, but Bleeding Through are playing So What?! Music Festival, Blue Ridge Rock Festival and Furnace Fest this summer, so that's a good sign. Stay tuned.
