New York City-based indie rock band Bleachers is the solo project of Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff.

Formed while Antonoff was touring in support of Fun.'s Grammy-nominated 2012 album, Some Nights, Bleachers' slick and emotional pop music is heavily influenced by the '80s and the high school-based films of John Hughes, while still using modern production techniques. Their debut single, "I Wanna Get Better," was released in the spring of 2014 by RCA, with an album, Strange Desire, following that summer. The record was produced in part by John Hill and Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Yaz, Erasure), and featured appearances by Yoko Ono and Grimes. After the record's release, Antonoff put together a live band and launched a tour that lasted through much of 2015. In September, Bleachers released Terrible Thrills, Vol. 2, which featured versions of all the songs from Strange Desire performed by female artists, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Elle King, Tinashe, and Antonoff's sister Rachel. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
