Internal Bleeding is all about family. And since the beginning we’ve always put great emphasis on taking care of our fans as well as each other. Recently, some important family issues have affected both vocalist Joe Marchese and bassist Shaun Kennedy, and unfortunately, they need to stay home and miss out on this tour.As they say in the business ‘the show must go on’ — so we all put our heads together, worked hard and found some solid people who will help us bring you everything you expect from us and our live show — plus an incredibly special treat for long time Internal Bleeding fans!
FRANK RINI, the legendary vocalist from our groundbreaking albums VORACIOUS CONTEMPT and EXTINCTION OF BENEVOLENCE will be handling vocals for about 3/4 of the tour. Those who have ever seen him live, well, you know, he’s a fucking monster.
TYLER LAUER of NY heavyweights Torturous Inception was hand picked by Joe and will be finishing up the dates. His energy, delivery and stage command is a perfect fit for our live performances.
RYAN GIORDANO of Mercy Blow and Flesh Tomb will be filling in for Shaun Kennedy on bass. He’s young, aggressive as hell, and well versed in the Internal Bleeding catalog. We'll have trouble keeping up with him.
We look forward to seeing you all next month, and Joe and Shaun will be back for the next US tour, which will happen hopefully this summer.
Check out the video below where Joe, Frank and Tyler discuss the upcoming tour.
We're pleased to announce that we'll be part of this year's Bloodletting North America tour alongside Decrepit Birth, Arsis, Pyrexia, Within Destruction and Angelmaker. It should be one hell of a tour! To purchase tickets for a show near you, simply click the button below!

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.
Long time fans of the band may remember seeing a much younger Kyle bashing the skins for IB 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!
