The Bleeding Outlaw is an independent solo studio project by former Pagan Lorn guitarist Jos F. Kirps.
"In this case, 'independent' means that this project is not backed up by any record company, and I will do everything on my own, including production, promotion, and distribution. Not because I couldn't get a record deal, but because I think that nowadays it's much more interesting not to be part of what people may call the 'traditional music industry'. I don't believe in the old industry's philosophy and strategies anymore, and I think it's time for something new, as rock 'n' roll can only be revived bottom-up. It will be much more interesting to be part of a creative underground instead of getting lost in the mainstream." – Jos
