Bleeding Through Frontman Launches Side Project
October 17, 2007
Brandan Schieppati, frontman of Orange County metalcore heavyweights Bleeding Through, has officially launched his side project going by the name of 'The Innocent'. The project, which also features Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, ex-Suicidal Tendencies) on drums, Dave Nassie (No Use For A Name) on guitar, and Ryan Sinn (ex-Distillers) on bass, was formed based on all the members "shared love of the power of heavy metal."

According to the band bio, The Innocent "are preparing to lay waste to any preconceived notions about the unlikely combination of heroes from the divergent Ozzfest, Warped Tour and rock n' roll worlds." And that the band is "ready to show its collective face and make its presence known as a force unto itself beyond its collective members resumes."

The Innocent will be releasing their as-yet-untitled debut album sometime this fall. In the meantime, three songs have been posted on the band's Myspace page.

Biography
HOME TOWN: Orange County, CA
MEMBERS:
Brandan Schieppati - Vocals (Bleeding Through)
Brooks Wackerman - Drums (Bad Religion)
Ryan Sinn - Bass (The Distillers)
Dave Nassie - Guitar (No Use For A Name)

As grinding death metal reemerges, thrash metal makes an exciting comeback and the trendy also-rans of the last few years deservedly fall out of favor, it's time for skillful fretwork, mature song-craft and breathtaking musicianship altogether to conquer to take its rightful place once again. It is time for The Innocent.

Vocalist Brandan Schieppati (Bleeding Through), drummer Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D, ex-Suicidal Tendencies), guitar player Dave Nassie (No Use For A Name, ex-Infectious Grooves) and bass player Ryan Sinn (ex-The Distillers) have joined forces, united by their shared love of the power of heavy metal, under the banner of The Innocent and are preparing to lay waste to any preconceived notions about the unlikely combination of heroes from the divergent Ozzfest, Warped Tour and rock n' roll worlds.

Boasting an arsenal of a handful of songs crafted together in the evening hours in Orange County when their other projects have allowed a break from touring or recording here and there, The Innocent is ready to show its collective face and make its presence known as a force unto itself beyond its collective members resumes.

Get ready to hear great things from The Innocent in months to come.
