Initially performing and recording as a largely acoustic duo, songwriters Joe Maloney and Marco Brizuela recruited David Hines on drums in late 2004 to begin work on the first full-length album. The resulting album, Suspicion, was released in the summer of 2006 to critical praise in national publications (The Big Takeover, Magnet, Spin), music blogs and college radio coast to coast for its dense layers of sound blanketed with haunting vocals.
Retreating to its home studio, Six of One, in 2007, the Bleachers began work on album number two. After spending just over a year working on the recordings, the band emerged in the summer of 2008 with Conjure, a 13-song album representing their strongest, most refined music to date. From the opening attack of "Ice On The Equator" to the final, defining moments of "Rivalry," Conjure demands repeated listens from start to finish.
