We are Bleed From Within, four Scots and a brave Englishman who have been writing and touring our own take on modern metal since early 2005.

The support we received following the release of our latest album 'Uprising' was overwhelming. After what seemed like a lifetime between albums, we had created the first REAL Bleed From Within album. It was a fresh start, and a fresh sound that we wanted to mash into everyone's face!

We have been writing material consistently for about seven months now and are approaching the half way mark of album number four. Our writing process differs from most bands, given that each member has a say in what makes the final cut.

Based on our current work schedule, the new album will be released in early 2015.

Having overcome many hurdles to reach the point we are at today, it seemed like a perfect time to get involved with the people at IndieGoGo and create an opportunity to share something special with the followers of our band, both old and new.

Our label Century Media has been very supportive of this idea, letting us go out and do this by ourselves. This is a great way to connect with you guys and create something a little different to what we normally do.

The idea is to fund the recording of an exclusive four track EP that is being specifically made for YOU, the Bleed From Within fan!

The campaign will fund the entire recording process of the EP and the production amongst the various additional exclusive products and incentives. This may seem like an easy feat, but hiring a studio, an engineer, microphones, paying for someone to mix the tracks and master the EP is a lot of money to any band.

That's not to mention the money it will cost to transport five or six guys and a room full of gear (and beer) to a studio for X days, before finally putting the songs onto vinyl so you have something beautiful, and physical…

As we have never released vinyl before, we want to give it a personal touch, something that will make it really stand out. The artwork will come from our friend and merchandise designer, Grindesign to give this EP the face it deserves!

The EP will comprise of TWO BRAND NEW SONGS & TWO COVERS.

The brand, spanking new tracks will feature guest musicians from two amazing metal bands we have had the pleasure of meeting over the years, and the covers will be picked from the playlists of our many, many parties. Take it from us, you will not be disappointed.

We have been sitting on this new original material for what feels like years now, and given the slightly later scheduled release of new album, we want to give something back to you, the family that we've built along the way; our fans.

We know this isn’t giving too much away, but this can be considered a taste of what is to come with our next release. It's a chance to really involve yourself with the band and the people behind it. It’s a chance to invest in the future of Bleed From Within and get involved in this beast that we have worked so hard to build up from nothing.

Your money will give us the opportunity to push this EP far afield, let it be heard by people across the globe and let them know that, despite being from a small town on the outskirts of Glasgow, we are a serious band which means serious business when it comes to our music.

ANYTHING that you can put towards the cause is a MASSIVE shove in the right direction and helps us more than you could ever imagine. We have nothing to lose here, but there is so much potential in what we could achieve!

We will be filming the entire process, keeping you updated on our progress, and maybe letting it slip about our guest musicians at some point! Check out the perks at the right hand side of the page and see what grabs your attention!

Be sure to keep your eyes on here, our Facebook/Twitter accounts, and most importantly SHARE THIS PAGE AMONGST YOUR FRIENDS/FAMILY to help us smash our target and deliver this EP to your door, all the while knowing, that we achieved this TOGETHER!

Thank you for your time and endless support.

Let's do this.
