The Bled have decided to break up. The band issued the following statement:
“After 10 years of making music together we have decided it’s 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 all in November for one last run. Much love.”
The Bled formed in 2001. Over the past few years, the group released a total of four studio albums. Their last full-length, ‘Heat Fetish,’ dropped in March 2010 via Rise Records.
