Bleed From Within have had an extraordinary year. They’ve just stepped off of the Lamb Of God Headbangers Boat cruise, following on from a colossal summer run which took in both headline shows, performances with Heaven Shall Burn and festival appearances at the likes of Brutal Assault (Czech Republic), Summer Breeze (Germany) and Alcatraz(Belgium), finishing up with a 13-date tour supporting Trivium across the UK. This was all on top of a hugely successful debut American tour earlier this year with August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada.
To celebrate this exceptional year, Bleed From Within have released their Shrine Deluxe Edition today, alongside a new single titled ‘Overthrone‘, which is accompanied by a lyric video.
Their stunning latest studio album Shrinewas released in the summer 2022, marking the band’s most groundbreaking work to date and staking out Bleed From Within‘s bold intent. The Scottish 5-piece claiming their position as the most exciting prospect in modern metal.
Steven Jones from the band stated,
”Upon releasing ‘Shrine’ in June 2022, it’s safe to say that none of us expected what the following months would bring. It’s been a hell of a year, with our most rigorous touring schedule yet putting us in places we’ve dreamed of since we started the band. This era of Bleed From Within is something we have worked so hard toward, and in this moment we are extremely grateful to all those who have made it possible. To all of our fans who fill the rooms and sing the words, to the team behind the scenes who keep the cogs moving on tour, in the studio, and everywhere between, and to the creative minds that help us bring our music to life – thank you. 17 months since its original release, we are so proud to now present this limited and deluxe edition of ‘Shrine’, featuring all of the songs that were recorded during the sessions. Here’s to the months and years ahead!”

Shrine was recorded at Real World Studios and at Bleed From Within‘s HQ, UK. The record was self-produced. Mixing was handled by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood and Sebastian Sendon, with drum engineering handled by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood, guitar, bass and vocal engineering by Steven Jones, additional production by Jamie Finch, string composition by Simon Dobson and Parallax Orchestra, strings engineered by Peter Miles at Middle Farm Studios, and additional backing vocals by Hannah Boulton on the tracks ‘Flesh & Stone‘ and ‘Paradise‘. TheShrine artwork was created by David Provan, with layout by Simon Atkinson.
Bleed From Within have been to hell and back, but they are no strangers to enduring hardship. When a global pandemic threatened to shut down their plans, the Glaswegians collectively raised five middle fingers and pressed on. It’s no surprise that this unstoppable riff machine continues to crush forward at such a frantic pace – there’s 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 Megadeth, Lamb Of God, Testament and Heaven Shall Burn, to name just a few. 2021 saw them dominate the UK live scene; selling out their largest ever headline tour in November, capturing hearts on Bullet For My Valentine‘s arena tour, slay a Lamb Of Godlivestream support slot, alongside (literally) blazing performances at Download Festival andBloodstock Festival.
Shrine has taken the most graft to put together of any record in their catalog, challenging their self-perception on both personal and technical levels – the culmination of two years 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. There’s no denying the band’s inevitable next steps are world domination, with Shrine a turning point moment.
