NXNE Alum: Bleached is Back

Quick, stock up on the poutine. NXNE alumn Bleached is making a return to Toronto this April. If you somehow missed their NXNE 2012 residency at The Silver Dollar, you can see them make a triumphant return to the same venue in a few months. Find more on the tour dates (via Exclaim!) below + our chat with the blonded sisters – Jennifer and Jessica Clavin – last June.

Bleached Announce North American Tour, Play Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver

By Alex Hudson

This spring, Bleached will release Ride Your Heart through Dead Oceans. In support of that debut disc, the Los Angeles sister duo of Jennifer and Jessie Clavin (plus Jonathan Safley + Alex Ghosn) will hit the road in North America.

Following a scattering of dates in February and March, including a stop at SXSW in Austin, TX, the Bleached tour will begin in April. They will launch the outing in the American South, then make their way up the eastern seaboard. The rock & roll band will play Montreal and Toronto with Hunters.

Bleached will then head out west for some dates along the coast in May. This includes a Vancouver stop with Ex-Cops. See the full itinerary below.

The Calvin sisters were members of the now-defunct Mika Miko. According to a press release, Ride Your Heart is said to mix “freewheeling ’77 punk with vintage sunny Southern California melodic rock and roll.” Read more about the album here and listen to “Next Stop” at the bottom of the page.
