“In the wake of Arcade Fire and Grimes, the Canadian renaissance continues with Ontario’s Bleeker. Riff heavy and melodic sonic callouts to the likes of JET, The Struts and even vintage Stooges” – Pigeons & Planes
“…frontman Taylor Perkins’ vocals are smoother than honeyed bourbon” – Kerrang!
“Their knack for penning colossal, commercial pop hooks is undeniable”
– Vive Le Rock
Canadian alt-rock outfit Bleeker have released the brand new stripped back 2017 mix of their single ‘Highway’, taken from their brand new album Erase You, due for UK release on February 10th via Five Seven Music.
The new version arrives as the band continues their rapid ascent in preparation for UK release. Kicking off 2017 as the #1 most added track at US Active Rock Radio, ‘Highway’ now holds the #1 spot on the Canadian Active Rock Charts, and was featured on Apple Music’s ‘Best Tracks of 2016’ and Spotify’s ‘Best of 2016 Rock This’, while reaching over 2 million streams.
Erase You is rock ‘n roll to its core, highlighted by catchy lyrics and hip-quaking beats. The album captures the same fun-spirited attitude as Bleeker’s acclaimed self-titled EP, released last year, which includes the original blistering rock version of ‘Highway’, alongside tracks ‘Free’ ‘Erase You’, ‘I’m Not Laughing Now’ and ‘Where’s Your Money’.
In October 2016 Bleeker hit UK shores for the very first time as support to Royal Republic and Dinosaur Pile Up. Playing six shows across the country, the band fervently lapped up their newfound fan base with sizeable crowds turning up early each night, eager to catch their opening set for the very first time.
Based just outside of Toronto, Bleeker – comprised of brothers Taylor Perkins (vocals) and Cole Perkins (guitars), with childhood friend Mike Van Dyk (bass) – have been captivating Canada with high-profile TV & radio slots, including an appearance on Toronto’s #1 morning show Breakfast Television which can be seen here. The band are now planning to leave their imprint on the rest of the world with relentless touring and future singles to be released.
Bleeker are fast becoming known across North America for their true rock ‘n roll spirit and ability to get the entire crowd on their feet. They also boast a genuinely charismatic heart-throb in lead singer Taylor. And now with Erase You set for release in the UK, Britain will soon be falling for their mischievous charm, sexy swagger and red-hot rock’n’roll tunes too.
