Bleachers’ tour is in support of their eponymous fourth album, which is set for release on Friday (March 8). The LP marks the band’s first release under Dirty Hit, their new label home. They have previously shared the singles ‘Me Before You‘, ‘Modern Girl‘, ‘Alma Mater‘ and ‘Tiny Moves‘.

In 2021, NME spoke to Antonoff about their record ‘Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night‘, where he discussed the themes of “wanting to hold joy, and not understanding why you fucking can’t.”

“Not understanding if it’s cultural, if it’s things I’ve been through, whether it’s Jewish things,” he said. “Is it the loss I’ve been through? I don’t know. That became the idea of those songs, and looking at myself through the lens of my family and the people that I love. All these people are struggling and I’m struggling, and… why? Why, why, why? It’s not about answering the question, it’s about posing it.”

NME gave the album a four-star review, writing: “What if we do escape, break free, get everything we want? What will life be like if there isn’t that push and pull of sadness and desperation drawing us out of constant happiness? As he puts it on ‘Stop Making This Hurt’: “If we take the sadness out of Saturday night, I wonder what we’ll be left with / Anything worth the fight?

“Antonoff has often described his songwriting as a way to figure things out, and that line feels like a Eureka moment. We need that tension to make the highs remarkable and the good stuff important. Plus: without it, we couldn’t get records as good as this taking us on that journey.”

In other news, Antonoff recently hit back at the critics who have questioned Taylor Swift‘s songwriting ability.

It came after he was asked about Damon Albarn’s incorrect past claim that Swift doesn’t write her own songs. In response to the remark (coming from an LA Times interview), the producer said at the time: “If you were there…cool…go off. If not…maybe…shut the fuck up?”
