New York, NY SEPTEMBER 12, 2016 — Alternative-rock outfit BLEEKER announce their 2016 fall tours in Canada and the UK, select US dates on the west coast and a headline show in Germany. They will be touring alongside Royal Republic in the UK, The Struts, Holy White Hounds, and The Psychedelic Furs in the US, and The Trews in Canada—see full tour routing details below. Tickets for the Canadian tour go on sale this Friday, September 16 via www.bleekerofficial.com.
Based just outside of Toronto, Bleeker is comprised of Taylor Perkins (vocals), Cole Perkins (guitars), and Mike Van Dyk (bass). Having toured alongside The Struts, Sublime with Rome, and Dirty Heads, they are “definitely a band you need to experience live. They combine the feeling of rock bands like Buckcherry and even Aerosmith with an ‘alternative’ edge similar to that of The White Stripes” (Salazen Media). Onstage, the band is a force to be reckoned with, performing with a true rock ‘n roll spirit and relentlessly testing the crowd’s ability to stand still.
Upon the announcement of the tours, Bleeker reveal details for their new, full length album Erase You, out October 24 via Five Seven Music—track listing enclosed. Erase You captures the same fun-spirited attitude as the EP and encapsulates the true mission of rock music: to encourage listeners to dance, sing along, and forget about their everyday lives for a while. The album includes hit single “Highway” which is currently #15 at Active Rock Radio (Canada) and will soon be starting at Alt Radio (Canada). The track is the first single off Bleeker’s debut, self-titled EP which has over half a million streams on Spotify, up 13% from the previous week. Streaming of “Highway” is now up 10% in the US and 47% in Canada.
Bleeker have also released a lyric video for “Free” off the EP and upcoming album.
