Bleach Garden don’t appear to be ones for subtlety. I mean, if you were going to start a tribute band to ‘90s grunge or the Seattle sound or some shit, you could do worse for a moniker. But as it is, the Atlanta trio are here churning out noisy, angst-ridden, full-throttle scuzz-punk like it’s ‘94 all over again. No bullshit, no lame stabs at irony, no pretense. Just crank it up and let ‘er rip.

So, yeah, maybe the first thing to day about the group’s new single “Parasite” is that it isn’t some second or third wave retread looking to inject some contemporary sensibility into the genre for the new millennium. Nah, this is a raw, rough-and-tumble trip into the way back machine—a long drink straight from the source, if you will—all festering fuzz guitars and spit-in-your-eye mettle. The touchstones may be obvious—Nirvana, Mudhoney, maybe a dash of Tad’s metal thrust—but that doesn’t stop Bleach Garden from tearing down the walls and tossing out a melodic hook or two along the way. “Parasite” is everything you want in a grunge song in 2019—it’s loud, abrasive, cathartic. After all, if you’re going to crib from the classics, you might as well stick to the proven formula.

“Parasite” is the lead single from Bleach Garden’s forthcoming sophomore full length, due out this summer. - GUILLERMO CASTRO-Immersive Atlanta


Atlanta’s Bleach Garden have been around a long while, and it’s nice to finally see this band blossom into what they’ve wanted to be. I’ve seen the trio play at least eight or nine times, mostly years ago, but they were always an electrifying band to watch, slamming out hard-charging originals and the occasional Nirvana cover in their plaid and ripped jeans.

Their latest release, An Immodest Motive, is a bludgeoning punch of aggressive punk and grunge from start to finish. Vocalist and guitarist Joey Bertini moans out his words like Cobain, but there’s an intensity in his vocals that keeps them from slipping into mere hero worship. Balancing hooks and heft, the band’s fuzzed-out riffs and metallic grooves may carry a nostalgic, flashback type feel, but what’s applauding about this record is its ability to both embrace and strive past its obvious ‘90s reverence. This isn’t just ANOTHER band doing ANOTHER glorified grunge record; its formidable stoner rock approach gives it a modern edge that feels vital and fresh.

If you’re looking for a standout track, make sure to crank up EP closer “Earful of Gas.” Starting off with a radio recording of War of the Worlds, the track quickly transitions into ferocious guitars and pounding drums while Bertini screams his damn lungs out. Its assertive approach is breathtaking, resembling stoner gods Sleep rather than grunge legends Mudhoney. Clocking out at eleven-and-a-half minutes, it’s a force to be reckoned with.

At this point in time I don’t see Bleach Garden slowing down anytime soon, and for fans of dynamic, go-for-broke hard rock, that’s exciting. This band is on a full-throttle ride; this record does nothing but prove that to the listener - JACOB KRESAK Immersive Atlanta


Hey, it’s Jackson! The #neXt2Rock competition is intense! There is so much great talent and they need you to rate your favorites for a chance to land a record deal and guaranteed radio play! One of the bands, Bleach Garden, were guests on my podcast (Scoped) and played an acoustic set of one of their songs. These guys are among the great talent that Atlanta rock has to offer. - Jackson Heaton
