Bleeker has mapped out an extensive touring schedule throughout the spring as the band supports “Highway,” the breakthrough single from the Canadian act’s latest album, Erase You. Although the quartet has made four previous records under the name Bleeker Ridge, the new single and tour represent their first real introduction to U.S. audiences.
Frontman Taylor Perkins told us what fans can expect when they attend a Bleeker show: [“I guess you could expect four dirty guys who have been on the road for a while basically just having fun onstage. And every night is a little bit different, but it’s always high energy, and I think that comes from the fact that we are a live band and that’s what we really, really love to do, so it’s hard not to have a fun time.”]
- “Highway” is currently Number 12 on the Active Rock radio airplay chart.
- Bleeker has been nominated for Breakthrough Group of the Year at the Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent to the Grammys.
- The band will be touring with Papa Roach and Sum 41 in the early part of April before heading out with Beware Of Darkness and Badflower later that month.
