New Zealand Artist: Bleeders
2006 was a huge year for the Bleeders. Their debut album, the anthemic power house that is 'Sweet As Sin', reached 2 in the charts, garnered them Best Breakthough Artist and Best Rock Album at the 2006 New Zealand Music Awards and went on to sell Gold. The band toured like maniacs in NZ and headed across the Tasman no less than five times at the invitation of everyone from Avenged Sevenfold and AFI to Aussie acts Gyroscope and Behind Crimson Eyes.
The self-titled follow up to 'Sweet As Sin' rejects any notion of resting on laurels. Produced by Clint Murphy and the Bleeders at Aucklandís York Street Studios and mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York, 'Bleeders' is a return to the brutal vitality that first brought them to peopleís attention.
As Sweet As Sin debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 10 April 2006. It has been in the Top 40 Albums for seven weeks with a highest position of #2. There are two albums by Bleeders in the Top 40 Albums.
