“The new album is more conversational, outward-looking and even funny. It paints a more peaceful and, by Antonoff’s own admission, mature picture of love.” THE GUARDIAN
The previously announced BLEACHERS UK tour for March 2024 sold out within hours of going on sale, was upgraded and then sold out again. The band have also announced details of their US tour for May and June, taking their renowned live show across the country and presenting the sixth edition of the band’s legendary Shadow Of The City festival in New Jersey.
The tours coincide with the release of the band’s highly anticipated self-titled fourth studio album to be released via Dirty Hit on 8 March 2024 and available to pre-order now at https://bleachers.ffm.to/b4.
There is a rich depth to the band’s sound on Bleachers, laid out in bright, soulful technicolour. The album is front man Jack Antonoff’s distinctly New Jersey take on the bizarre sensory contradictions of modern life, on his position in culture, and on the things he cares about. Sonically, it’s sad, it’s joyful, it’s music for driving on the highway to, for crying to and for dancing to at weddings. There’s something reassuringly touchable and concrete about its sentiment – exist in crazy times but remember what counts.
Described as “anthemic, life affirming pop rock” by the New York Times, Bleachers are fronted by globally celebrated, eight-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, musician and producer Jack Antonoff. Releasing their debut album Strange Desire in 2014, the band have built a huge and passionate following across three studio albums, becoming renowned for their impressive live show and infectious camaraderie. The band’s last album, Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night, took them to new heights, showcasing Antonoff’s immersive songwriting and, as Variety testified, his innate skill at “supersizing personal stories into larger-then-life pop anthems”.
Both with Bleachers and as a songwriter and producer, Jack Antonoff, who in 2021 was credited by the BBC for having “redefined pop music”, has collaborated with the likes of Taylor Swift, Lorde, The 1975, Lana Del Rey, Diana Ross, St Vincent, Florence & The Machine, Kevin Abstract and many more.
