I've been playing a year and I noticed whenever I bend on like the high E I hit the B string when I release and it sounds pretty bad. Should I try to palm mute the b string or is the problem in my left hand?

It means instruction 1 is practice, instruction 2 is to go back to instruction 1.

Bacially practice, practice, practice until its perfect.

That's actually:

A = 0;
IF A != 1000:
practice_bends;
A= A + 1;

play_ some_f_music&bends;

He shouldn't practice one technique for the rest of his life :]

Anyway
You can always upstroke and let the pick rest on the B string... or bend the string in way only nail (not skin) touches other string... Palm muting isn't enough precise technique that could be used to mute strings excluding precisely one string (ok, that propably applies only in fast pieces).

Ok, lets see if we can get this back on topic.

Are you using your wrist to bend?
Are you using more than one finger to do the bend?
Is the string that is causing unwanted noise getting caught under your finger nails?
Is you finger flicking the string or just touching the string that is causing unwanted noise?
How fast are you releasing your bend?

I use my middle 2 fingers to bend. I watched my fingers and noticed almost every time it's actually the 2nd string up thats making the noise. Like I'll bend the high E, and on release the G is hit. The speed varies on what I'm trying to play.

use the ring finger to bend supported by the middle finger then try to put the index finger on top of the b string to make it dead.

and practice!

oh yeah. Thing I usually do - strigns that are supposed to be bended are lifted by nails. When I release the bend other strings just "slide" down on nails back to original position .
Bending this way can cause injury to the skin around your nail but I didn't have problem with that for a while now.
And yeah remember about other fingers supporting the first one.
