Let the Post-Punk Light in With BLEAKNESS “Dancing With Darkness”

Sometimes I feel an emptiness that only some bouncy, caustic post-punk can fill. That’s where the punk-driven sounds of BLEAKNESS come in to remind me that things aren’t so bleak after all. Today we’re sharing their new video for “Dancing With Darkness” that features a compilation of footage of their 2019 tour with Greece’s Chain Cult, just in time to get us all excited for their 2022 tour with Paris Anarcho-post-punk band Barren?! Their new record Life At A Standstill will be released on June 17th and you can pre-order it via Destructure, Sabotage, à La Carte, FDL, and Bat Cave Production. Their tour starts April 29th — check the full dates below! Now hit play on “Dancing With Darkness” and let the sunshine through your grey day…
