Bleachers with July Talk coming to Artpark – September 8, 2017; tickets still available

On Friday Sept. 8 Artpark in Lewiston, NY is pleased to host Coors Light Concerts at Artpark presented by Funtime featuring two great bands, Bleachers and July Talk.

Bleachers is an American indie pop act based in New York City. It’s the official stage name of songwriter and record producer Jack Antonoff, who is also part of the bands Steel Train and Fun (We Are Young, Carry On) . Bleachers‘ pop music was heavily influenced by the late ’80s, early ’90s and the high school-based films of John Hughes while still using modern production techniques. Their first single, I Wanna Get Better, was released February 18, 2014 from their debut album Strange Desire.

While on the road with Fun, Antonoff began working on a new project during his time in different cities. For about a year he kept the project a secret until the single I Wanna Get Better was released along with the launch of Bleachers‘ website, social media profiles, and a selection of tour dates. News of Bleachers was first publicly announced in a Facebook post by Brooklyn music studio Mission Sound in May 2013.

Bleachers‘ latest album, Gone Now, was released on June 2, 2017 – the follow-up to 2015’s Strange Desire.

July Talk is a Canadian alternative rock band formed in 2012 in Toronto. The band consists of singers Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay, guitarist Ian Docherty, bassist Josh Warburton and drummer Danny Miles.

July Talk received a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year in 2015. The album went gold in Canada the same year and was released to American audiences in the spring of 2015 through Island Records and was joined by an EP in Canada titled For Your Bloodshot Eyes.

With a reputation for explosive live shows, July Talk has found most of their following on the road. Since the release of their debut album, they have toured Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia, and played numerous festivals, including the WayHome Music and Arts Festival near Toronto, Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta, GA, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans, LA, Osheaga in Montreal, Isle of Wight Festival in the UK and Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

July Talk released its self-titled debut album in 2012 and the follow-up album Touch in September 2016. Push + Pull, the album’s first single, held the #1 spot on the Canadian Alternative Radio charts for more than twelve weeks in the summer of 2016 and was released on American Alternative Radio in September 2016.
