Boston-based pop punk band Bleacher Days will be releasing their new EP I Only Saw True Purpose on December 1st, but the band has teamed up with New Noise Magazine to share an exclusive stream early. The six tracks produced by Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives, Lions Lions) are angst-charged, introspective songs that are poppy, but still pack enough punch to keep the mosh pits moving.
"The songs are a blunt chronicle of the back end of a 7 year relationship I was in and start to finish, each song is just frustration," says vocalist Wren Mohammed. "The period when we were writing the songs was for sure a rough time, but it was a complete catharsis honestly. Our producer Chris had a much larger part in the writing process, and the songs are all SO much better for it. He's a really talented guy, and we learned a lot when we recorded with him, so we're lucky to have him on our team. Recording the songs definitely helped us all cope with what we were individually going through at the time as well. So even though frustration is what drove its conception, in the end we all came out much healthier and wiser people, and we hope each listener feels that with each listen."
Bleacher Days will be setting out on tour this December with Riviera (who recently performed at the Warped Rewind at Sea event). The punk package will start in Stroudsburgh, PA and end in Attleboro, MA on 12/16 (full list of dates below).
In its first year of hard work, Bleacher Days has made an immediate impact on New England shows, rallying bands together and promoting in person on their way to selling out a 250 cap room with their most recent headliner. A feeling of camaraderie consumes the room when the band takes the stage and the relationships within the band run deeper than the band's one year age would suggest. Longtime friends, past musical projects, and once abandoned ideas is what brought Bleacher Days together.
