Jack Antonoff’s new album under his Bleachers moniker comes out on July 15th. You may know Jack from his other bands, Steel Train and Fun.

Jack recently wrote up a Craigslist ad and titled it “Artist seeking “Strange Desire” “. No, this wasn’t in the personals section. Jack used this ad to announce the details and release date of the new Bleachers album, Strange Desire, in an interesting way.

The ad worked. It’s making the rounds at press.

    Wow. Somebody needs to learn the difference between “its” and “it’s” and the difference between “were” and “where.”

        Funny how the writer here is defending illiteracy…

          Literacy and accuracy are no longer benchmarks for journalists. Political activism and sensationalism have replaced them.
