Bleachers Reveal New Song ‘Rollercoaster,’ Album Tracklist & World Tour Dates

By Shannon Carlin

With Bleachers‘ latest single, “Rollercoaster” Jack Antonoff was looking to channel his inner-Springsteen.

In an interview with Radio.com, Antonoff says the track off his upcoming debut Strange Desire was his full-hearted attempt at making his own, modern version of Springsteen’s 1984 track, “Dancing in the Dark.”

“He’s like the greatest songwriter in history, ever,” Antonoff said of the fellow New Jersey native. “He’s just unapologetic and not afraid to make you dance or make you cry.”

With his homage, Antonoff will be soundtracking your last-chance power drives all summer long.

 

With the release of his new song, Antonoff also announced he’ll be hitting the road for the first leg of his world tour. The 22-date trek kicks off on July 20 in Dover, Del., for the Firefly Festival, while also hitting New York City, Boston and Chicago’s Lollapalooza.
