Post-hardcore outfit the Bled formed in Tuscon, Arizona, in 2001. Drawing equally from mathcore bands like the Dillinger Escape Plan, progressive, emo-fused bands like At the Drive-In, and the ferocious hardcore of acts like the Refused, the Bled deliver an intense, cathartic barrage of aggressive noise. PASS THE FLASK, the group’s debut, appeared in 2003, followed by FOUND IN THE FLOOD (for which the band switched labels to Vagrant Records). The Bled has joined several major national and international tours, including the Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos Tour, and Projekt Revolution Tour (with Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance). The band’s third album, SILENT TREATMENT, was issued in 2007.
