Apparently, being the guitarist in one of the world's most popular bands, fun. , being Lena Dunham 's boyfriend and writing a song with Taylor Swift is still leaving Jack Antonoff with plenty of free time. The guitarist has a new side project called Bleachers , a brand new single called " I Wanna Get Better " and a new full-length album in the works.
Bleachers is also setting out shortly on a mini-tour which kicks off with a show at South by Southwest, and the group will make its network television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers on March 26.
This is a solo project for Antonoff -- he's the only official member of Bleachers, though he has a variety of project collaborators, including Depeche Mode founding member Vince Clarke , who went on to play with two other popular synth-pop group of the '80s: Yaz and Erasure . Antonoff will have a backing band along with him when he appears on the Bleachers dates.
