Bleed The Sky: New Line Up, New Album, New Tour
June 28, 2008
Migrating back to their place of birth after a two-year stint in Los Angeles and sporting three new band members, Oklahoma City’s Bleed The Sky are proud to announce they’re ready to hit the road in support of their “end-all, be-all” new album, 'Murder The Dance' - released on June 10th and produced & engineered by Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory), mixed by Ben Schigel (Chimaira, Drowning Pool), and mastered by Matt Rosebery. 'Murder The Dance' is the follow-up to the band’s 2005 debut album, 'Paradigm In Entropy', which sold over 10,000 copies.

Warming up with four shows in Texas before joining Straightline Stitch, Within Chaos, and Ekotren on their first headlining, 26-date tour for this album cycle, BTS vocalist Noah Robinson shares some additional information about the album:

“We had several guest vocalists on 'Murder The Dance'. A lot of people think that you only bring in guest vocalists when you yourself are out of ideas, but that couldn't be further from the truth. First off, we had our friend Jeremy Hall [from San Diego-based bands Audkik & Dying Regret] come in to track "The Sleeping Beauty." Nobody understood the meaning of this song more than him, and when I explained that to him, he said he'd be honored. Once we had our vocals tracked on "Occam's Razor," we were listening back to it and [producer] Christian [Wolbers] suggested Martina Axen [former Drain STH drummer] come in and guest. She was thrilled and I could not have been happier to see her in action. Last but certainly not least was our boy Jon "The Hoff" Howard [vocalist for Canadian-based label mates Threat Signal] tracking vocals on "Vertical Smile." We've all been huge fans of Threat Signal even before they were signed, so we seized this opportunity to finally get to work with Jon. The new line-up is… let me put it this way: Our video director David Brodsky [Hate Eternal, The Red Chord, Soilent Green] beat us into the ground when were shooting for "Sullivan," and everyone was headbanging like maniacs at 8 a.m. without an audience and without even stretching or warming up. Things can only get better once we’re back on the road. I’ll say it again and again - I can’t wait to show everyone the new Bleed The Sky!”

Within Chaos Theory, patterns inhabit what looks most random. Order emerges from the blur of the NASDAQ index, or at the edge of thunderstorms; it even traces the cream-spiral in your morning coffee. Within Chaos, the band, finds the structure inside heavy metal-the common DNA of old-school, Slayer-style thrash and new-model monsters like Hatebreed and Lamb of God.

Based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Within Chaos has been honing its chops since 1998. "There's a lot of really good bands here, says frontman, singer Danny Reid, who joined in 2001. And a lot of people are into sports, so you're always having to compete with a big football game it just makes you work that much harder."

We don't subscribe to all the trends out there," Reid says. We're doing metal the way it's supposed to be done-powerful and true to its roots. We still put a modern spin on it, but it's more like the older bands do it." Reid's contenders for the top three metal albums of all time? Metallica's "Black Album," Sepultura's "Chaos A.D." and Hatebreed's "Perseverence."

The lineup for the band's KOCH Records debut, Virulent, remains the same--minus a guitarist--as What Does't Kill You, released in early 2006: Jason Huggett on guitar, Jim Taylor on bass and Travis Denham on drums. Dropping October 23, 2007, Virulent was recorded at TLA Studios in Weatherford, Texas. Reid, "We worked on it for probably three months until we got the tracking. This recording was really hard to get, because we wanted it to be really good, and we put a lot of pressure on ourselves. When we got it back, we still weren't really happy with it, so we sent it to Ben Schigel [who runs Spider Studios in Ohio, and is the singer for the band Switched] to get it mixed and mastered, and it turned out perfect. The Within Chaos composition formula is concentrated and effective: "We lock ourselves in a room for hours and hours at a time and just jam," Reid says. It's usually a guitar riff that sparks a composition. Once the fire is lit, there's no stopping that process."

Within Chaos has already spawned a passionate fan base. "We have some of the best fans, says Reid. They come to every show that they can; they're really supportive. A lot of them found us from MySpace, a lot of them from playing shows with other national bands that already had a good following."

"Immediately, says Reid, "We'd like to get on tour and just get out to as many people as we can. Long-term would be the same thing-get out there and spread the message. We try to be really positive, help the kids get through some of the things that we went through, with a little more of a clear head. It makes us feel good whenever kids come up to us and say we've helped them in some way-drug addiction, issues with family, issues with rejection, whatever."
