Bleeding Through’s Brandan Schieppati Says He Was Offered A Chance To Try Out For Killswitch Engage In 2002

During a recent appearance on the “Meep Meep Podcast,” Bleeding Through’s Brandan Schieppati revealed that he was offered a chance to try out for Killswitch Engage in 2002. The frontman said the following about that:

“I got asked to sing for Killswitch, when Jesse [Leach] quit the first time. That is a true story. I was in Arkansas with Bleeding Through, Norma Jean, and Every Time I Die – the first Bleeding Through tour we ever did…I just kinda knew that Bleeding Through was my shit. I knew I was gonna leave Eighteen Visions and just do Bleeding Through and I remember their A&R guy hits me up and goes hey ya know the band wants you to try out for Killswitch and at the time…Killswitch was an unknown. They weren’t really poppin’ off yet. Bleeding Through actually was probably bigger than them at that time… They actually asked James [Hart] from Eighteen Visions too. But we both recommended Howard [Jones] and there you go.”
