Bleeding Through guitarist announces solo debut
Official press release: Dave Nassie, lead guitarist for Bleeding Through, will release his first ever solo album later this year. Bleeding Through's Declaration (2008) marked his first recorded appearance with the band (as a guest). He eventually joined as a full-time member, contributing to Bleeding Through (2010) and The Great Fire (2012). This will be his first solo album. Nassie recently filmed scenes for Next Level Guitar's 10-disc "Modern and Classic Rock Blues Masters," a forthcoming collection featuring a variety guitar players. Here's a teaser video with Nassie teaching David Gilmour inspired licks. Next Level Guitar founder David Taub recently interviewed Dave. When Chris Shifflet left No Use For A Name to join Foo Fighters, Dave Nassie took his place, beginning a ten year stint with the band that included touring all over the world and several studio albums. Nassie was a member of the short-lived project The Innocent (with members of Bad Religion and The Distillers) and has played with Infectious Grooves and Suicidal Tendencies. Bleeding Through have sold roughly a half million albums around the world, working with labels like Rise Records, Roadrunner, Nuclear Blast and the now defunct Trustkill. They've appeared on a number of magazine covers and on international tours: Vans Warped Tour, Australia's Soundwave, Ozzfest, MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball: The Tour" as well as on tours and shows with Slayer, Avenged Sevenfold, Marilyn Manson, AFI, Hatebreed, Cradle Of Filth, Senses Fail, Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and countless more. Nassie has been keeping busy doing clinics for Charvel as well as private Skype lessons with students in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, India, South America, Japan and North America. Here's a link to 76 FREE lessons on YouTube. Bleeding Through recently announced plans to disband after 14 years of being a band. They recently wrapped a final tour of Europe and will head to Australia next month for a final tour down under. A final US tour is in the works for the fall.
