INTERNAL BLEEDING To Release ‘Corrupting Influence’ Album In October

Pioneering New York death metal legends INTERNAL BLEEDING have returned with their devastatingly heavy sixth full length album – Corrupting Influence, which will see an October 19th release date on Unique Leader Records.

Featuring all of the raw, crushing, groove heavy aggression that fans have come to expect from the group, the album also sees INTERNAL BLEEDING continuing to push themselves and the sound that they help create in new and unexpected ways.

Founding guitarist Chris Pervelis commented: “‘Corrupting Influence’ is filled with all of the gut twisting heaviness and groove you’d expect from us, but there’s also plenty of unexpected twists that take a listener to places we’ve never gone before. Additionally, the production is right where it should be — heavy as fuck, organic and live sounding.”

Guitarist Chris McCarthy added: “I grew up as a fan of INTERNAL BLEEDING, so I put everything in my ability to make this the sickest INTERNAL BLEEDING album ever.”

Corrupting Influence Track Listing –

  1. Compelled to Consume
  2. Corrupting Influence
  3. Fatal Dependency
  4. Focus
  5. Surrounded from the Inside
  6. Unreality
  7. Litany of Insincerity
  8. Final Justice
  9. The Supreme Sacrifice

Pre-order bundles for Corrupting Influence will be available in the coming weeks

Internal Bleeding Announces New Drummer Following Bill Tolley’s Passing

On April 20th, Internal Bleeding drummer and veteran FDNY firefighter Bill Tolley passed away after falling five stories from a rooftop while battling a two-alarm apartment fire in Queens, New York. The tragedy touched family, friends, his bandmates, the city of New York, and the worldwide metal community. Many fans expressed concerns as to whether Internal Bleeding would continue. The band utilized the drum services of basher Kyle Eddy for their recent The Strike Of The Empire US tour with Vader and are pleased to welcome Eddy as a permanent member.

Issues the band in a collective statement, “Losing a beloved friend and band mate has been a traumatic event for us, and needless to say, the past few months have been a roller coaster of conflicting emotions. But, through it all, there was never a thought given to packing this band up and calling it quits. There was no doubt in our mind that Bill would want the band to continue. As a matter of fact, he spoke about it numerous times with us. In short, he always said, ‘the band needs to go on.’

We’re not quite sure how we managed, but we pulled off a full US tour with a fill-in drummer who only had a few weeks to practice and get the set down. That drummer was upstate New York native, and deathmetal veteran Kyle Eddy. He did an amazing job learning the music, getting the set down, and fit in perfectly with our personalities. We had a great time with him on tour, and it felt like he’d been in the band for years – that’s how comfortable we were with him.

Kyle is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is deeply dedicated to his craft and brings unrelenting enthusiasm and energy to the band. For those reasons — and many others — we have chosen him to become the new drummer for Internal Bleeding.

Longtime fans of the band may remember seeing a much younger Kyle bashing the skins for Internal Bleeding during our second Onward To Mecca tour. He did a superb job then, and we’re supremely confident that his skills will help propel the band to new heights. It’s always painful to move forward after a tragic loss, but it must be done. We’ve decided that Kyle should be our new drummer, and we think – scratch that – we know that Bill would be really happy about our choice. Please welcome him to the Internal Bleeding fold!”

Adds Eddy: “It’s a honor to be accepted into the Internal Bleeding family. Lookout everyone – we are driven to conquer all!”

Long-running New York death metal pioneers INTERNAL BLEEDING recently unleashed a brand new single via Unique Leader Records. Titled “Final Justice,” the track serves as a teaser from the band’s forthcoming full-length, Corrupting Influence, an album that promises to continue where their last album, the critically-acclaimed Imperium, left off.
“Final Justice” takes the patented INTERNAL BLEEDING sound into new, more intense levels. It’s still filled with all the hooks, slams, and grooves you’ve come to expect from the band, but at the same time, it’s more sophisticated, sharper, and focused than anything they’re released previously. From a recording standpoint, the band focused on achieving a very “live” sound by eschewing the heavily edited, paint-by-numbers productions that are so prevalent today.
“We really focused on the basics,” notes guitarist Chris McCarthy. “Just get on your instrument, beat the crap out of it, and try and nail it in one goddamn take.”
“We wanted to bottle the live energy we’re known for and try and get it on a recording,” adds guitarist Chris Pervelis, “and hopefully we achieved that with this recording.”

On new music from Internal Bleeding?

Its gonna be, I’m gonna say a lot more streamlined than the last few, I’m gonna say its gonna be a lot more intense than the last few, its gonna be more pummeling, we’re really gonna work hard on it. (Vocalist) Joe Marchese is an insane songwriter and riff writer and to be able to work with him and Chris simultaneously, and some of my ideas, I think we’re gonna up come up with some shit. We already have about four or five songs in the can at the moment that we’re going to go back and look at, after this tour and probably change a few things, we have a ton of other riffs and things ready to rock. I think people will be pretty pleased with the direction that we’re going in, its gonna be catchy and pummeling and intense at the same time

On religion?

When I was going for confirmation, I was at a class, with a bunch of other kids my age, and the priest who was conducting it said “our parish here in Bayshore, New York is a special one, we actually have a piece of the actual cross”. I asked the priest, can we see it and he replied “no we can’t show it to anyone”. I was like ahhhh, Santa Claus for adults, I get it, bye bye, that’s about it, that’s the last time I believed in any of that horseshit.

Many fans expressed concerns as to whether Internal Bleeding would continue and more specifically, whether they would still take part in the upcoming Strike Of The Empire US tour with Vader.
“Bill was having trouble getting all the vacation time needed to complete the tour, so we had a backup drummer in place and ready to go. He will be filling in,” wrote the band on their official Facebook page late last week. “Bill would want it no other way. When we were discussing the problems with his vacation, he told Chris [Pervelis] something along the lines of, ‘You’ve gotta do it, bro. Fuck it, no matter what happens, Internal Bleeding needs to go on. You gotta do it, asshole.’ So we think it’s only appropriate that we do this tour, continue with the band, and continue to release music in Bill’s memory, and in the memory for all those metalhead men and women who have fallen. There is no other way. Metal is our life. Our love. Our passion. And to our fans, you are family: we don’t leave family hanging. We got your back, because you always had ours. Our backup drummer will be announced soon. Out of respect to Bill, please don’t ask. Love and metal always: Chris, Shaun, Chris, and Joe”
The Strike Of The Empire US tour will commence on May 27th in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and run through June 16th in New York City, New York. Additional support will be provided by Sacrificial Slaughter, Voices Of Ruin, and Micawber.

Internal Bleeding ‘Final Justice’ Video In Honor Of Fallen Drummer Released

Internal Bleeding drummer and veteran FDNY firefighter Bill Tolley passed away Thursday, April 20th after falling five stories from a rooftop while battling a two-alarm apartment fire in Queens, New York. Tolley leaves behind a wife and eight-year-old daughter.

Said Tolley’s band mate’s upon his tragic passing, “Our drummer, the heartbeat of the band, William Tolley, died today. There are zero words to describe the loss. He was a good, decent, and honorable man who loved his friends, his family, and the people he served. There will never be another like him. There are no words to describe the utter sadness and despair we feel right now. Bill was our rock, our heart, and supplier of insane laughter. The music world lost a very influential drummer, and the world lost a friend, a father, and a damn good man. We love you Bill.”
Today, marks the release of Internal Bleeding’s digital single, “Final Justice.” The track serves as a teaser from the band’s forthcoming full-length, Corrupting Influence and the band planned to celebrate today’s release with a new video for the track. Internal Bleeding wishes to unveil the clip today as planned in Tolley’s honor. “Bill would want that more than anything. It will mean so much.”
“Final Justice” takes the patented Internal Bleeding sound into new, more intense levels. It’s still filled with all the hooks, slams, and grooves you’ve come to expect from the band, but at the same time, it’s more sophisticated, sharper, and focused than anything they’re released previously.
“It’s now impossible to listen to the song and watch the video without thinking about yesterday’s tragedy (and the original video has been modified since yesterday to include a remembrance and a dedication). Yet it’s also a fitting tribute to Bill Tolley and his important role in creating the legacy of this band that obviously meant so much to him for so many years. There’s a lot of visceral power in ‘Final Justice,’ and it captures the kind of immediacy, energy, and head-wrecking punch that you feel in a live performance…”

Long-running New York death metal pioneers Internal Bleeding will unleash a brand new single later this month via Unique Leader Records.
