BLEEDING THROUGH will headline this year's Strhess Tour, the annual U.S. trek sponsored by renowned artist Derek Hess and his company, Strhess Clothing.

"We have all been huge fans of Derek's work for many years and we're honored to be part of this year's Strhess Tour," said BLEEDING THROUGH's vocalist Brandan Schieppati.

"This lineup could quite possibly cause rioting in the streets nationwide; grown men will cry for their homes," commented Hess. "I'm all over this year's Strhess Tour like a bum on a pork chop."

The Strhess Tour kicked off last year with SHADOWS FALL, AS I LAY DYING, HIMSA and REMEMBERING NEVER. This year's jaunt will see BLEEDING THROUGH joined by Ozzfest 2004 alumni DARKEST HOUR and long-running metalcore legends ZAO as co-direct support, along with special guests MARTYR AD and newcomers FIGHT PARIS.

The Strhess Tour, which kicks off on July 8 in Philadelphia, and will wrap up on August 1 in Nashville, just before BLEEDING THROUGH and ZAO join the Warped Tour.

The Strhess Tour will mark BLEEDING THROUGH's first full U.S. headlining run since "The Mutilation Tour" in January of 2004. The band has toured in support of 2003's "This Is Love, This Is Murderous" with AFI, as part of Ozzfest 2004, and as direct support for CRADLE OF FILTH on last year's MTV2-sponsored "Headbanger's Ball" tour.
