In a statement, the album was described as “ Antonoff’s very “New Jersey” take on the bizarre sensory contradictions of modern life, his position in culture, and the things he cares about. Sonically, it’s sad, it’s happy, it’s music for driving on the highway, for crying, and for dancing at weddings. There is something reassuring, tactile and concrete about this feeling: existing in crazy times but remembering what matters. »

Prior to the album’s release, Bleachers will embark on a short four-date UK tour. In March, they will stop in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow.
