Bleached
Bleached
April 1, 2016, sees the release of 'Welcome The Worms,' the ambitious new rock album by Los Angeles-based Bleached. While keeping the band's origin of cheeky, California-punk in the forefront, 'Welcome The Worms' is a smarter, heavier, emotionally deeper Bleached.

Sisters Jennifer (vocals, guitar) and Jessie Clavin (guitar, bass) knew things were going to be different for their sophomore album -- not only had they managed to charm world-renowned producer and engineer Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) and co-producer Carlos de la Garza (Paramore, YACHT) to join them and their bassist Micayla Grace in the studio, but Jen and Jessie had been crawling out of their own personal dramas. Jessie was evicted from her house and scrambling, while Jen ended a torrid, unhealthy romance. While emotionally spinning, she dove head first into music.

"I was a loose canon," the commanding front woman says. "I was losing serious control of my personal and creative life. I was falling apart, trying to escape. I felt like Bleached was the only thing I actually cared about."

Throughout the record, Bleached paints a frivolous picture of Los Angeles: the life of eye¬-rolling caused by dating men in bands, dirty Sunset Boulevard and futile drunken nights in a starstruck hole that made everyone from Charles Manson to Darby Crash to Marilyn Monroe stare up at the Hollywood sign for direction. Although a typical theme of ruined romance floats through the album, the real power is in Jen figuring out herself through lyrics so straight, identifiable and honest, a first for the girl who safely hid behind a cheeky misdemeanor.

"We don't want perfection because it's boring," Jen declares. "We want to make music that's as real as life."
Criminal Hygiene
Criminal Hygiene was formed on October 3rd, 2011 over a couple of really good burgers at Olympian Family Restaurant in South Central Los Angeles. Eat lunch there and you might start a band too, its a fucking great establishment. On that shameless day, founding member Michael Fiore took a break from his double bacon cheese to share with founding member James Pratley Watson a simple idea: "Let's record some music…" to which, James replied: "Let's get drunk first…" The duo did those things that day, and thus, Criminal Hygiene was formed. At this time, they were in their last year at the University of Southern California, and frequently skipped class over the next 7 months to get drunk in the middle of the day to record music. They were angry, lost, and generally not giving a fuck. Since then, an angel by the name of Sean "Birdman" Erickson swooped down from Tacoma on the wings of his incredible mustache to join the band on drums. With the addition of Birdman, Criminal Hygiene became a real band, with purpose and meaning for themselves, and they even released the CRMNL HYGNE LP in early 2013. Since then, James has been replaced by another Michael (Michael "Chili" Hiller) and they've spend the majority of their time playing shows, delivering pizza and burning trees on their front lawn.
