Bleached are back.

Sisters Jessica and Jennifer Clavin have shared a video for Shitty Ballet, the first new music to emerge from the band since their 2017 ‘Can You Deal?’ EP. Their last album, meanwhile, was 2016's 'Welcome the Worms'.

The majority of the song finds the duo paring things back to just acoustic guitar and vocals, but for the track's final minute they swap the acoustic for electric and are joined by bass and drums for a full-blown garage punk band finish. Jennifer said:

"Bleached has always been a pretty loud rock band so we felt it was time to explore a more stripped down style of playing. With the vulnerability of the lyrics we decided to carry that into the instruments as well for the first time recording with just an acoustic guitar and vocals.  Sonic change is important to us right now. More of that coming soon."

Bleached will support Refused in the US this May. They've also booked a hometown show at the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on July 11. More updates are said to be expected soon.
