BLEED FROM WITHIN Ink A Deal With Nuclear Blast Records + Drop New Single "I Am Damnation"

These powerful, resonating words herald in a new momentous era. Today, Nuclear Blast Records is proud to welcome metal heavyweights BLEED FROM WITHIN to their worldwide family! Having just returned from a victorious UK tour with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, the Glaswegian five-piece continue to shatter all expectations, delivering an indelible wildfire of heavy riffs and captivating melodies. The new single “I Am Damnation” is a melodic metal masterclass, showcasing the band in the form of their lives. A bold statement that presents the first taste of their new record, due in 2022.

Drummer Ali Richardson about the signing:
“I’m happy to finally announce that BLEED FROM WITHIN has signed to Nuclear Blast Records. Their enthusiasm was obvious from our first conversation back in 2020 but as negotiations continued, the team proved that they possess the passion, drive, and knowledge to take this band to the next level. It’s also an honor to join such a prolific roster – something that we do not take lightly. ‘I Am Damnation’ is the first step in a new chapter for us; a sonic development and a true taste of the music that has still to come as part of this new deal. I’m very excited for our future together and can not wait to share what we’ve been working on.”

Nathan Barley Phillips, Senior A&R states:
“After numerous meetings with the band and discussing everything they’d like to achieve over the next stage of their career, it was immediately apparent that there was a huge synergy and ambition from all parties involved. BLEED FROM WITHIN is the absolute embodiment of what a modern Metal band should be and I am positively elated to welcome the guys to the NB family and work directly with them in the years ahead. LFG.”

Jens Prueter, Head of A&R Europe adds:
“It’s been almost 10 years ago since BLEED FROM WITHIN and I first worked together and I’m more than proud that the band are now joining the Nuclear Blast artist roster. The band have made huge strides over the last few years and there’s an even bigger future ahead. Cheers and lang may yer lum reek!”

BLEED FROM WITHIN have been to hell and back in the last two years but these Glasgow bruisers are no strangers to enduring hardship. When a global pandemic threatened to shut down the release plans for the band’s fourth studio album, Fracture, the lads responded by collectively raising five middle fingers and pressing on, despite facing pressures to postpone.

If venues were unable to open their doors, BLEED FROM WITHIN would find a way of delivering the headbang to the front doors of their fans instead. It’s no surprise that this unstoppable riff machine continues to crush forward at such a frantic pace – there is no putting the breaks on the heaviest band to ever emerge from Scotland. The band’s reputation as one of the most formidable forces in modern metal has earned them tour slots with MEGADETHLAMB OF GODTESTAMENT, and HEAVEN SHALL BURN, to name just a few. And with over 25 million streams for Fracture, the Glaswegian metalheads are only growing stronger and more popular with every new release. Their latest single, “I Am Damnation”, is the band’s heaviest yet, the culmination of two years of hard work that embodies their artistic might. Armed with the learnings of evolving their sound over the last decade without ever losing sight of their DIY roots, this is BLEED FROM WITHIN at their very best. With the backing of a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records and a new album on the way in 2022, there’s no denying the band’s inevitable next steps are world domination.
