Watch “Problems”: HERE
“Problems” is a powerful opening track to Bleeker’s upcoming album, SELF-MADE, available for pre-order now. The song explores the often-overbearing standards created by social media, in an up-beat encouraging track to set the tone of their album. “Problems” is a self-love anthem rebelling against the standards of social media that makes people compare themselves to others. Bleeker is opening their newest project with a positive message to their audience: “Don’t sell yourself short.”
BLEEKER will set out on the road with Better Noise Music labelmates, AWOLNATION, kicking off the tour on Memorial Day weekend in Asbury Park, NJ as the opening concert for the 2020 Stony Pony Summer Stage series. The formidable alternative tour will also include stops in NYC at The Rooftop at Pier 17, Washington D.C.’s The Anthem, The Aragon Ballroom in Chicago and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. All shows also feature special guest Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and The Beaches.
Juno and Canadian Radio Music Award-nominated BLEEKER represents a fresh, new vision for alternative music. Amplifying alt rock with stadium sized spirit, delightful experimentation and raw power, Ontario, Canada natives, brothers Taylor and Cole Perkins, with Mike Van Dyk and Chris Dimas, create thoroughly modern anthems. The band’s first album on Better Noise Music, ERASE YOU garnered a Juno Award nomination for “Breakthrough Group Of The Year,” as well as a breakthrough single, “Highway,” that went to #1 on radio in Canada and Top 10 stateside. BLEEKER’s sound, according to Examiner, is “akin to early Stones meets Cage The Elephant with a splash of Fitz & The Tantrums.”
Pre-Order New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1 NOW
Nergal’s darkened blues project ME AND THAT MAN has just released their last single off its upcoming album, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1. “Confession” is everything and nothing at all: a call straight into the void, a statement filled with melancholy, a prayer to no one and an apology to people you care about. A mournful country lament, the song mirrors the dark epilogue of the upcoming album. The charismatic singer of Swedish black metal band
SHINING, Niklas Kvarforth, lends his unforgettable, almost weeping vocals to the song and sublimates an almost physical sorrow that resonates through the subtle yet catchy guitar riffs. He manages to breathe life into the self-loathing that the protagonist of the song seems to be feeling. The song will surprise the listener with a sudden eruption of an unanticipated black metal inspired drum solo and a bewildering outburst of emotion.
The accompanying audiovisual is equally remarkable and continues the story of the Devil himself. Watch the video below!
Nergal on “Confession”:
“”Confession” – an ode to gunslingers and saloon singers! The ending will surprise those who aren’t aware of my other half and I hope it will put a smile on the faces of those that do; a statement, ME AND THAT MAN is limitless and capable of anything.
‘That Man’ for this one, Niklas Kvarforth. I sent Niklas a demo; my voice and lyrics and suggested he change anything he felt he should… only two words from the original demo version remain and happy to report, his version is way better! Some people compared his performance to Peter Steele… that gives me some ideas for the afterlife! Enjoy!”
