Bleached Announce New Album, Share Video For “Keep On Keepin’ On”

Welcome The Worms is out April 1 on Dead Oceans.

This April, Bleached will rejoin the scene with a new album titled Welcome The Worms. The album, as singer Jennifer Clavin told The FADER, will be the "darkest" the L.A. garage-pop crew have made to-date.

Case in point, the first single off the album, "Keep On Keepin' On," is a sneering soundtrack to a souring relationship and a gentle reminder to keep on keepin' on regardless. "It may be one of the more poppier songs," Clavin said, "but its subject is about sticking with someone through thick and thin, no matter how fucked up they are." And so, she sings: I'll be a good girl and I won't mention yesterday because I really want you today.

This sentiment is brought to life in the Lana Kim-directed video, which premieres today on The FADER, with long shots of the girls sprinting through a dark night. "You never see who or what we're running from or being stalked by," pointed out. "I personally feel like I was doing a lot of running in the last few years and it wasn't until I started facing my fears that I felt like I was finally living."
