On July 30, 2021, Bleachers released their anticipated third album via RCA Records. Kicking off 2022, Bleachers made their debut performance on “SNL,” performing two songs – including their new single, "How Dare You Want More," to mark the show’s first episode of the year.
Offering up the first taste of new music in late 2020, they previewed the album with a series of singles including “Chinatown” ft. Bruce Springsteen; and “45,” followed by “Stop Making This Hurt,” which received a Best Alternative Video nomination at the 2021 MTV VMAs, hit No. 1 at Triple A and went Top 10 at alternative radio.
The Associated Press called the project “terrific,” while Entertainment Weekly deemed it "a canny commingling of indie-pop jangle and unabashed arena rock.” A top live act, this past fall Bleachers hit the road for their sold-out “Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night” headline tour, a multicity run across North America.
“Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night” serves as the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed second album, “Gone Now,” which released June 2, 2017. The first single, “Don’t Take The Money,” hit No. 3 at alt radio. The New York Times called Bleachers’ music “anthemic life-affirming pop-rock.”
Five-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, musician and producer Jack Antonoff is the creative force behind Bleachers.
