The Bled "Pass The Flask" Again
Arizona-based hard rock band, THE BLED, will be reissuing Pass The Flask, their debut release, compiled with 11 additional tracks, on March 20, 2007 on Vagrant Records.
The original version of Pass The Flask has become a hard-to-find item and the band has previously been unable to sell the disc at their shows. This new version also features some of the bands earliest recordings along with a few more recent original and unreleased tracks.
When The Bled formed in Tucson in 2001, the founding members - Talley, Mike Pedicone (drums), and Ross Ott (guitars) – recorded the His First Crush EP after just two months of playing together. Only 1000 copies were pressed and were quickly sold as the band’s local popularity grew.
The Ambulance Romance EP was also a limited pressing that was recorded in 2002 and featured 4 songs (only three are included on this reissue) on a one-sided 12”. Not long after, the band added current singer James Munoz and recorded their debut disc, Pass The Flask in 2003 (bassist Darren Simoes joined in 2004).
The last three tracks were either never officially released or were only available on various samplers. The band says of the last track, “"Lay On My Cot" was sent to us from deep space and shall never be spoken of again.”
The Bled is currently at home writing music for their follow up to their breakout disc, 2005’s Found in the Flood. The band will be heading to Baltimore’s Salad Days studio in March to begin recording with producer Brian McTernan. A summer 2007 release is planned.
