Buzznet’s TheReaper recently sat down with Brandan Schieppati and Marta Peterson from Bleeding Through, and got some candid thoughts on their current tour, the metal scene, their future direction, and straight edge. Asked how the tour with HIM is going, Brandan responded, “With only two bands playing, it’s very relaxed. We go on stage, and about 90% of the people there have never heard us or our kind of music before, and didn’t even know it existed. Sometimes it’s a hot crowd and the kids get into it, but a lot of times it takes 3-4 songs before people really get into it. I think that once they see us as a non-threatening band they get into it. I try to look as nice as I possibly can.” The transcript at buzznet.com has since been removed.
