Jack Antonoff releases new Bleachers song 'Stop Making This Hurt' + announces new album 'Take the Sadness Out Of Saturday Night'.

After much teasing via cryptic puzzle pieces mailed to over 3500 fans, Jack Antonoff has today shared a new Bleachers song, 'Stop Making This Hurt', along with the announcement that the third Bleachers album 'Take the Sadness Out Of Saturday Night' will be released on July 30th.

About the new song, Antonoff says: "It’s a line that had been ringing in my head for years. I fell into a dark place after a loss and then started to have that feeling of rage toward the depression — which is when you know there’s a way out. Started looking at the people close to me in my life and finding all the ways we keep ourselves from breaking through. ‘Stop Making This Hurt’ started ringing more and more in my head. Then the pandemic hit and I got the band in a room and we played like we may never play again. At that point, it took on another meaning. Found myself banging at the door of the next phase of my life and to open [it] brings up all the darkness from the past and what’s holding you back. I could intellectualize it for days but what I’m truly left with is a voice in my head shouting ‘Stop Making This Hurt.’"

And about the album, Antonoff says: "take the sadness out of saturday night is an album about banging on the door of the next phase of your life. all the hope that comes with that as well as the horror when it doesnt swing open. you realize how much you have to find peace with to be able to break through. starting to move in life is exactly the moment that you have to come to terms with how much you are dragging around with you and choose what comes and what has to be left behind. its an incredible time that can also break you. take the sadness out of saturday night is that story. from darkness into a glimmer of hope. and sonically from new york into new jersey. the story of going home to find the future."
