“In The wake of Arcade Fire and Grimes, The Canadian renaissance continues with Ontario’s Bleeker. Riff heavy and melodic sonic callouts to the likes of JET, The Struts and even vintage Stooges.” – Pigeons & Planes

 “Bleeker possesses all the DNA of a Canadian Cage The Elephant.”

–Pretty Much Amazing

 “If the Black Keys and Cage The Elephant had a charming baby boy…” –RARA’s Farm

 “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

 Toronto, ON OCTOBER 24, 2016 — Alternative-rock outfit BLEEKER release their highly anticipated, debut album, ERASE YOU Friday (October 21) via Five Seven Music. The album is available for purchase and streaming NOW on Apple Music/iTunes and Spotify.

Erase You is rock ‘n roll at its core, highlighted by its catchy lyrics and hip-shaking beats. The album captures the same fun-spirited attitude as their acclaimed debut, self-titled EP, released earlier this year, and includes the energizing, hit single “Highway,” produced by Matt Squire. The track is currently a Top 10 single in Canada and a Top 35 single at US Alt Radio. Nearing 1 million streams on Spotify, “Highway” is featured this week on Alternative Press’ AP Discover Spotify playlist.

Based just outside of Toronto, Bleeker–comprised of Taylor Perkins (Vocals), Cole Perkins (Guitars), and Mike Van Dyk (Bass)–have been captivating their hometown with appearances last month on etalk Canada, iHeartRadio Canada, and Toronto’s #1 morning show, Breakfast Television. The band is now planning to leave their imprint on the US with their string of west coast dates, performing alongside The Struts—Remaining US tour dates enclosed. Having already toured with The Struts, Sublime with Rome, and Dirty Heads, Bleeker are known for their true rock ‘n roll spirit and ability to get the entire crowd off their feet.
