The Bled was a post-hardcore/mathcore band from Tucson, Arizona. Formed in 2001, they soon established a name for themselves in their home town, playing many shows and often to sold out audiences. Eventually they signed to Fiddler Records and released one album through them - Pass The Flask. The band toured extensively in support of this album.

However, before recording started for their second album, original bass player, Mike Celi, left the band. He was replaced by Darren Simoes. The band is currently signed to Rise Records and through them, released their fourth album, Heat Fetish in 2010. They have toured alongside such bands as Slipknot, Alexisonfire, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Thrice, Midtown, The Used, My Chemical Romance, Underoath, Senses Fail, and AFI.

The Bled's very first headlining tour was shared with Protest the Hero of Canada. The Bled consists of: James Muñoz - vocals Jeremy Talley - guitar Ross Ott - guitar Darren Simoes - bass Mike Pedicone - drums Bands usually seek to do one of two things: define their genre, or defy their genre.
