About Bleeding Through

Bleeding Through was established in Woodlake, California in 1999, rooted in a band called Breakneck formed in 1998. The original lineup included vocalist Brandan Schieppati, guitarists Javier Van Huss and Scott Danough, bassist Chad Tafolla, and drummer Troy Born. Over time, the lineup changed with the departure of Van Huss and the addition of Dave Peters. Later, Tafolla switched from bass to guitar, followed by Brandon Conway as the new bassist and later Marc Jackson.

The band broadened their hardcore sound by incorporating elements of black and death metal. Their name symbolizes the idea that everyone, regardless of race or sexual orientation, bleeds the same and goes through life the same way. The band signed with Indecision Records in April 2001 and released “Portrait of the Goddess” in 2002. Following the release, Schieppati focused on Bleeding Through and the band consisted of Danough, Lepke, Morris, and Youngsma.

In 2015, vocalist Johnny Plague announced the band’s return after a hiatus. They recorded their fifth studio album “Blood of My Enemy” from 2016 to 2017 and released it in 2017.

Scars Of Tomorrow

About Scars Of Tomorrow

Scars of Tomorrow is an American metalcore band that formed in Southern California in 2000. Thorp Records released Scars of Tomorrow’s first material, which included two albums, before the band signed to Victory Records in May 2003. After Victory Records released the band’s third album in February 2004, they embarked on a tour with Himsa, Atreyu, and Norma Jean.

The band was set to tour with Bury Your Dead after the release of their fourth album, “The Horror of Realization,” in 2005, which was their second album with Victory Records. However, shortly before the tour began, all the members except for lead vocalist Mike Milford left the group. Milford acted quickly and replaced the members with Lisa Marx, Joey Atkins, and Ryan Severino, and completed the tour as scheduled.

The group’s fifth studio album was released in October 2006 after further lineup changes. In the meantime, Thorp Records released “The Beginning Of…,” a compilation of tracks from the band’s first two albums. The band disbanded in May 2007 after further touring. However, in 2010, they reformed and occasionally play shows and release music. Artery Recordings (Warner Music Group) released the album “Failed Transmissions” in 2014, along with the follow-up single “Perspectives” in 2018. As of 2020, the band members have alluded to new material for a future release.

About Lionheart

Lionheart, consisting of vocalist Rob Watson, guitarists Evan Krejci and Rob McCarthy, bassist Chad Hall (currently in “Wear the Crown”), and drummer Jay Scott, was formed in 2004 in Oakland, California after several lineup changes. The band released their debut album, “The Will to Survive,” on September 2, 2007, via Stillborn Records and I Scream Records. Two years later, it was re-released with bonus material.

After signing with Mediaskare Records, Lionheart released their second studio album, “Built on Struggle,” on January 8, 2011. A year and a half later, on May 8, 2012, the follow-up album, “Undisputed,” was released on Mediaskare. On January 14, 2014, the band released an EP called “Welcome to the West Coast” via Fast Break Entertainment. In the beginning of 2016, Lionheart released their fourth studio album, “Love Don’t Live Here,” via the German-based label Beatdown Hardwear Records.

On May 26, 2016, the band announced their breakup. Five days after that announcement, Lionheart announced the dates of their Farewell Tour in Europe, which included appearances on festivals like With Full Force, Vainstream Rockfest, and the Free & Easy Festival all located in Germany. Lionheart also played shows in Serbia and Greece for the first time. On August 12, 2016, it was announced that the Farewell Tour would be expanded, and the band would play their last concert in Germany on November 5, 2016, in Chemnitz. After about a year of disbanding, the band announced on Facebook that they had reunited.
