Metalcore/hardcore band The Bled are calling it quits after ten long years. The band formed in 2001 in Tuscon, Arizona. They released two EPs and four full lengths. The band is currently booking a farewell tour. Details such as dates and line up have still yet to surface. The band released a statement in the comment section of Absolute Punk.
After 10 years of making music together we have decided its time to move on to new things. We are in the process of booking our final tour and will post dates for that as soon it’s confirmed. We want to thank Rise Records, Paradigm Talent Agency, the companies who endorsed us, tour mates, promoters, anyone who worked for us, and most of all, those of you who supported us. Whether you were a fan or just sat through one of our sets to see the next band, we can’t thank you guys enough. We have met some amazing people all over the world and that has been the best part of being in this band. That being said, we hope to see you in all November for one last run. Much love.
This is a bummer. I’ll admit I stopped pay attention to this band after Found In The Flood, but His First Crush and Pass The Flask got some heavy rotation while I was in high school. I saw them open for Every Time I Die a few years back and they were still pretty good live. I might have to catch this final tour and maybe you should too.
