Bleached Ask 'Don't You Think You've Had Enough?' on New Album, Share "Hard to Kill" Video

BY Josiah HughesPublished Apr 30, 2019

Since 2011, sisters Jennifer and Jessie Clavin have played poppy garage rock together as Bleached. The band, which was born out of their previous project Mika Miko, have just announced their third LP and, in doing so, expanded on their sound in every way.

The release is called Don't You Think You've Had Enough?, which is inspired by a question Jennifer asked herself when she hit a turning point regarding alcoholism. 

In fact, sobriety is a central theme of the release, as a press release explains:

That newfound perspective serves as the guiding force in every corner of its sound, yielding a courageous, honest, and sonically ambitious album. Throughout, the Clavins radiate the power and bravery of facing addiction, of letting go of the past and becoming open to a radically different future of self-love, acceptance, and newfound honesty.

The album's writing process was split between a practice space in Los Angeles and with a group of co-writers in Nashville.

"Writing these songs while sober became somewhat of a spiritual experience," Jennifer said in a statement. "I had to let go, trust the process, and allow an energy beyond my control to be present."

The album was produced with Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend) and will be released on July 12 via Dead Oceans. Watch the video for new single "Hard to Kill" below, where you'll also find the band's forthcoming tour dates.
