    Bleachers is an American indie pop act based in New York City formed by Jack Antonoff, of bands Steel Train and Fun. Bleachers' pop music was heavily influenced by the '80s and the high school-based films of John Hughes while still using modern production techniques. Their first single, "I Wanna Get Better", was released February 18, 2014.

    Jack's Working on a Book
    In the age of streaming music, there is no shortage of nostalgia for record stores that fostered a sense of community and also sold tangible products. But in mourning that mostly bygone era of erudite clerks and obscure, collectible titles, it’s possible to overlook the very recent past — namely, the more mainstream ’90s CD culture, with its mega-chains like Tower Records and Sam Goody.

    That period, when music sales were booming, will be the focus of a coming book, “Record Store,” by Jack Antonoff, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and producer behind hits for Taylor Swift and Sara Bareilles, along with his own bands Bleachers and Fun.

    I'm very very excited about LP2. Wonder if we'll get that this year or if it'll be held until early next year

    That book sounds right up my alley, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next album as well. I still play Strange Desire regularly.

    I scored tickets to that MTV performance, but a 10 hour drive to Jersey and missing work deterred me. Super bummed.

    Looks like we'll be getting a new song/some details VERY soon.
