LOOK: Alex Bleeker & The Freaks Reveal Sophomore LP “How Far Away” + Tour Dates

 

Real Estate bassist Alex Bleeker has taken on his newest project where he has teamed up with a bunch of "freaks" (Mountain Man's Amelia Meath, Woods' Jarvis Tanviere, Real Estate's Jackson Pollis, & Big Troubles' Sam Franklin to name a few) to make their sophomore LP How Far Away out May 28th Woodsist.

 

Not only that, but he and the band have set up a set of tour dates for spring in support of the new LP and have also treated us with a listen to the first track!

 

How Far Away can be described as a narrative about the disintegration of a relationship, but also serves as a story about growing older and figuring out what you need to do to keep moving on in life. But don't let the sad and heartbreaking context behind the lyrics bring you down! You'll forget about that once you listen to the first track off of the LP "Don't Look Down," which holds a chipper pop melody with an upbeat guitar.
 

With this track, the album looks to be very promising. Check out the track listing of How Far Away and the upcoming tour dates for Alex Bleeker & The Freaks after you listen to "Don't Look Down" below!
