Bleachers, the indie band of songwriter and producer Jack Antonoff, has released their third studio album, Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night. This is the band’s first studio album in four years, largely due to Antenoff’s busy schedule. Since Bleacher’s last album, Gone Now, Antonoff has helped produce a lot of music for other artists, including Lana Del Rey’s Norman Fucking Rockwell and Chemtrails over the Country Club, Kevin Abstract’s Arizona Baby, Taylor Swift’s Lover and Folklore, The Chick’s Gaslighter, and Clairo’s Sling. Now, Antonoff has finally had enough time to release another album as Bleachers. The band released the first two singles, “45” and “Chinatown (Feat. Bruce Springsteen),” last November, while their last single, “Stop Making This Hurt,” was released this May. Bleachers will be going on tour later this year in support of this album. You can see all the tour dates below.

“On the first two [Bleachers] albums I felt so obsessive about looking at the different angles of those stories, and that caused me to have to relive some trauma to go back and tell certain stories… but this album is literally trying to break down this door and move into it a new zone,” Antonoff told NME. “I’d imagine myself with all this baggage. And I would be trying to get through [the doorway] and I’m like, ‘Oh no, I gotta drop some, I gotta figure out what I can take’. That’s the whole point of the album. It’s that moment when you’re at the end of something, but you’re not at the beginning of something else yet, and all the hope that’s on the other side.” The record, he says, concerns “all the anxiety and frustration of trying to break through.”
