The Bled Return With "Silent Treatment," Projekt Revolution

posted July 23, 2007

The Bled Return With "Silent Treatment," Projekt RevolutionArizona-based post-hardcore band, The Bled, announce a September 25th release date for Silent Treatment. The five-piece band hits the road later this week on the Projekt Revolution tour and several fall tours are planned.

Silent Treatment is the band’s third full-length and was recorded earlier this year with producer Brian McTernan at the helm. The resulting 11-song set is an explosive document of The Bled’s trademark ability to join unexpected melodies and precision playing with the heaviest of rhythms. To get an early listen, the first track, “Shadetree Mechanics,” is currently airing on AOL’s Projekt Revolution radio channel and is also included on the Vagrant summer sampler being distributed free at the Vagrant Records booth along this summer’s Warped Tour.

Formed in 2001, The Bled soon set the standard for their genre with the release of Pass the Flask in 2003. Their breakout disc, 2005’s Found In The Flood, cemented the band’s reputation and critics proclaimed the band to be musically and lyrically ahead of their peers. Spin called The Bled “Next Big Things”, while Metal Edge said, “With The Bled, you get uncompromising brilliance and hostility in equal measure” and Alternative Press included Silent Treatment as one of the “Most Anticipated 2007.”

The Bled is: James Munoz (vocals), Jeremy Talley (guitar), Ross Ott (guitar), Darren Simoes (bass), and Mike Pedicone (drums).
