By Alex HudsonThis spring, Bleached will release Ride Your Heart through Dead Oceans, and in support of that debut disc, the Los Angeles sister duo of Jennifer and Jessie Clavin will hit the road in North America.
Following a scattering of dates in February and March, including a stop at SXSW in Austin, TX, Bleached's tour will begin in earnest in April. They will launch the outing in the American South before making their way up the eastern seaboard and hitting up Montreal and Toronto with Hunters.
They will then head out west for some dates along the coast in May. This includes a Vancouver stop with Ex-Cops. See the full itinerary below.
The Calvin sisters were members of the now-defunct Mika Miko. According to a press release, Ride Your Heart is said to mix "freewheeling '77 punk with vintage sunny Southern California melodic rock and roll." Read more about the album here and listen to "Next Stop" at the bottom of the page.
