The cassette is rolling again – Bloodpit has recovered

Public word has got it all wrong – Bloodpit has not called it quits. The chart topping Finnish band went through a rough period of time, but dark rockers are now ready to continue their career. Guitarist Paavo Pekkonen comments: “I would not use a word comeback, since none of us ever said we have split up. Off The Hook tour ended last summer to a complete dead end, but despite of that we played a few cover gigs as a trio. Everything felt really good so we started making new songs. We realized quite fast, that it sounded like Bloodpit all the way.”

The guitar-driven quartet jumped fully into the spotlight in 2005, with debut single “Out To Find You” claiming the top spot on the Finnish single charts, swiftly joined there by follow-up “Platitude” (featured also in NHL 2007 by EA Sports) which sold more in a week than previous song had in a month! After two successful albums and lots of touring the band drifted into dead end in summer 2007 as the mental health of the band's vocalist's was no longer in condition required for touring. Due to problems the band had to cancel the whole European tour of almost 30 gigs.

Bloodpit promised to return to the stage once they would be in a condition worthy of their audience. Now with a new singer and guitarist lined up the future of Bloodpit is looking brighter than ever.
“Recovered”, the new EP of Bloodpit, will be released 1st of October 2008. Bloodpit will start touring next fall in Europe and in Finland. They are also confirmed to play in Musiikki & Media, the annual Finnish music trade fair arranged in Tampere 23-25.10.2008.
