The Info List - Declaration (Bleeding Through Album)

--- Advertisement ---

Declaration is the fifth album by American metalcore band Bleeding Through. The song's titles are named after different states and cities. Frontman Brandan Schieppati commented, "There are definitely 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 totally insignificant. You get the feeling that people's eyes are just burning a hole through you."[2] 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, and bridges the gap between This Love and The Truth, "The melodies are darker, the riffs are heavier. We just wrote a really aggressive record that encompasses everything we've ever tried to do as a band and then raised the bar a notch or two."[2] 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.[3] Bleeding Through

recently 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". Also it has been made apparent by joining an official fan site called Dearly Demented, which is supported by the band, a person will receive the song "Germany". Many I Killed The Prom Queen
