Watch Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff’s dad join them on stage at intimate NYC gig

Ricky Antonoff – the father of Bleachers‘ frontman Jack Antonoff – joined the band on stage last night at their intimate New York City gig.

Bleachers took over Bowery Ballroom last night (March 6) for an intimate gig in celebration of their new self-titled album which is set for release on Friday, March 8 (Pre-order the album here). The band began the show with the live debut of ‘I Am Right On Time’, the unreleased and first track from their upcoming LP.

They jumped into ‘Modern Girl’ followed by another live debut of the unreleased track ‘Jesus Is Dead’. For the third song of the night, the band were joined by Antonoff’s father on the acoustic guitar for a performance of ‘How Dare You Want More?’ from their 2021 LP ‘Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night‘.

“This was last minute, it was a bitch to get here, its cold and raining but here we are,” the band’s frontman told the crowd during a break before thanking them for joining the band. Bleachers also performed ‘Me Before You‘ and ‘Tiny Moves‘ – the most recent singles to be released from ‘Bleachers’ – for the first time, also marking their live debuts. Check out the footage below.

‘Bleachers’ marks the band’s first release under Dirty Hit, their new label home. They have previously shared the singles ‘Me Before You‘, ‘Modern Girl‘, ‘Alma Mater‘ and ‘Tiny Moves‘. The album also follows 2021’s ‘Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night’. Check out the fill setlist below.

In a four-star review of their self-titled LP, NME shared: “‘Bleachers’ is the collective’s most quintessentially “them” release yet. It evolves into new territory, of course, but is equally deeply connected to past releases – a by-product of spending a decade honing their dynamic and sound.”

It continued: “The Lana Del Rey-featuring ‘Alma Mater’ is another prime example of the Bleachers genius, ‘Tiny Moves’’ glistening undercurrent sounds like a sprinkle of magic, and ‘Jesus Is Dead’’s whispered indie rock assessment of New York micro-scenes and life in a band is pure gold. In those moments – a large chunk of this album – any hint of fatigue is blasted away, Antonoff’s presence a welcome one once again.”

The band have recently announced their biggest headlining show at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The show, titled ‘From The Studio To The Stage’, will see Jack Antonoff and co. play the iconic arena on Friday, October 4. It will mark the final show of their North American leg of tour, which is set to kick off on April 13 with a set at Coachella.

In other news, Jack Antonoff recently hit back at the critics who have questioned Taylor Swift‘s songwriting ability.

It came after he was asked about Damon Albarn’s incorrect past claim that Swift doesn’t write her own songs. In response to the remark (coming from an LA Times interview), the producer said at the time: “If you were there…cool…go off. If not…maybe…shut the fuck up?”
