Bleached
Bleached
April 1, 2016, sees the release of 'Welcome The Worms,' the ambitious new rock album by Los Angeles-based Bleached. While keeping the band's origin of cheeky, California-punk in the forefront, 'Welcome The Worms' is a smarter, heavier, emotionally deeper Bleached.

Sisters Jennifer (vocals, guitar) and Jessie Clavin (guitar, bass) knew things were going to be different for their sophomore album -- not only had they managed to charm world-renowned producer and engineer Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) and co-producer Carlos de la Garza (Paramore, YACHT) to join them and their bassist Micayla Grace in the studio, but Jen and Jessie had been crawling out of their own personal dramas. Jessie was evicted from her house and scrambling, while Jen ended a torrid, unhealthy romance. While emotionally spinning, she dove head first into music.

"I was a loose canon," the commanding front woman says. "I was losing serious control of my personal and creative life. I was falling apart, trying to escape. I felt like Bleached was the only thing I actually cared about."

Throughout the record, Bleached paints a frivolous picture of Los Angeles: the life of eye¬-rolling caused by dating men in bands, dirty Sunset Boulevard and futile drunken nights in a starstruck hole that made everyone from Charles Manson to Darby Crash to Marilyn Monroe stare up at the Hollywood sign for direction. Although a typical theme of ruined romance floats through the album, the real power is in Jen figuring out herself through lyrics so straight, identifiable and honest, a first for the girl who safely hid behind a cheeky misdemeanor.

"We don't want perfection because it's boring," Jen declares. "We want to make music that's as real as life."

Guitar, bass and drums. Played loudly.

We make good trouble.* And better listeners.

Your Mom will think we're sweethearts. We kind of are.

We hardly talk.

So we make records.**

And it feels good to feel like you finally belong.

*James also plays in Weston, Ed also plays in Crybaby and JP also plays in Ex Friends.

**Last Saturday, my friend Caroline told me, "You guys sound like what I imagine a one-night stand between The Psychedelic Furs and The Replacements would sound like."

I really kind of adore her for that.
