Bleached return with ‘Shitty Ballet’

It’s the LA group’s first new music in two years.

LA group Bleached have returned with their first new music in two years.

‘Shitty Ballet’, released today, follows 2016’s second album ‘Welcome The Worms’, and 2017’s ‘Can You Deal’ EP.

“Bleached has always been a pretty loud rock band so we felt it was time to explore a more stripped down style of playing,” says the band’s Jennifer Clavin. “With the vulnerability of the lyrics we decided to carry that into the instruments as well for the first time recording with just an acoustic guitar and vocals. Sonic change is important to us right now. More of that coming soon.”

The band tour the US in May.
