Last month, Jack Antonoff and his band Bleachers returned with new music, their single "Stop Making This Hurt."
Now, they've shared their new track "How Dare You Want More," the latest preview of the new album Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night, which is out July 30 via RCA Records. And it might already have proven to be this album's sing-along song, similar to the perfect crowd-pleasing format of "Rollercoaster." As further evidence, Antonoff and Co. have shared a live performance video complete with a full-on interlude of jamming.
"Over the past few years I found out things about my family that challenged some of the myths of our structure," says Antonoff. "I've felt rage, fear, darkness, etc. around it, but at the end of the day what I am left with is that everybody wants a little more and going out there and trying to get it is something that can produce a lot of shame in people. So … how dare you want more? How dare you go out and get what you want? How do you ask for it when you’re not sure if you even deserve it? It's an easy song to write about the people in my life and the hardest thing to do to oneself.
He adds: "This one is the band on fire. Testing the boundaries of how close we can get to the edge without falling off. This recording could not have happened with any other group of people and it's the direct sound of all the time we’ve spent on the road and how we’ve learned to know what each other is going to do. The band is carrying me through."
