The New York-based Alternative-Metal outfit Bloodsimple, came together
in late 2001 when frontman Tim Williams and guitarist Mike Kennedy left
their previous Metal-core band to launch a new recording project, but
it wasn't until the addition of guitarist Nick Rowe, nearly a year later,
that they started writing the material for the first album; bassist Kyle
Sanders, the brother of Mastodon's Troy Sanders and drummer Chris Hamilton were eventually added to the band to
complete the line-up.
Thanks to constant gigging the quintet became rather popular developing a close friendship with Mudvayne singer Chad Gray, who took them on the road and made them the first signing to Bullygoat, Gray's imprint on Warner Bros. Records; Bloodsimple's debut full-length CD was fianally released in March 2005, it included the single "What If I Lost It" which managed to crack The Mainstream Rock chart reaching #38. The follow-up single, "Sell Me Out", was also a top 40 hit on the same chart.
Bloodsimple issued its sophomore album, "Red Harvest", in the fall of 2007; it debuted at #10 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers listing while the main single, "Out To Get You", peaked at #30 on The Hot Mainstream Rock chart.
