Watch Bleachers “I Wanna Get Better” Music Video
Formed in NYC, indie band Bleachers was formed by Jack Antonoff, of Steel Train and Fun.
While on the road with his band, Fun, Antonoff began working on a new project during his time in different cities. He kept the project a secret for an entire year until February 17, 2014 when “I Wanna Get Better” was released concurrently with the Bleachers’ website, social media profiles, and a selection of tour dates.
About making the album, Antonoff said, “I spent the past year working on the music but not talking about it, and eventually it became this psychotic alter-ego situation, where it was second nature to have this part of me that no one knew about. Except for a small group of people, most of which happened to be members of my immediate family, no one was aware that this music, or this album even existed … even though it existed so deeply to me.” Antonoff also cited that Bleachers was never meant to be a departure from his position in Fun and that he will remain in the band.
Bleacher’s full-length album is due July 15th, named Strange Desire from RCA Records.
