Bleeding Rainbow at Fred Perry Artist Lounge, CMJ 2012 (more by Diana Wong)
tickets

Bleeding Rainbow's new album, Yeah Right, is out next week. If you liked their single "Wasting Time" you'll probably really dig the new album which is full of hooky, noise-and-harmony filled guitar pop. Pitchfork is streaming the album in full despite giving the album a middling review. (The band and P4k writer Steve Hyden got in a bit of a Twitter spat over it.) Personally, I like it a lot.

The band are going on a short run of dates next month in support of the new album, including two shows in NYC: February 11 at Cake Shop (openers TBA) and February 12 at Glasslands with Habibi, Census and Spires. No advance tickets for Cake Shop but Glasslands tickets are on sale now.

Wow their tweets to Steven Hyden are pathetic

I listened to Wasting Time last night on my portable mp3 player, though the bands title was Reading Rainbow. Did they have to change their name via a lawsuit from that amazing life changing TV show?

Did they just want to change their band name to the more edgy and vivid Bleeding Rainbow which has a polar effect of Darkness with Light, being very provocative.

Well in any event I will consider seeing them live, and hopefully I'll be able to have a craft beer and interact with my nyc music fan fellows.

Rock On BV readers and have some fun on this Brrrry Chilly Friday.

From the band's tumblr:

REASONS WE CHANGED OUR NAME FROM READING RAINBOW TO BLEEDING RAINBOW:

- We like the name Bleeding Rainbow better.

- It is trippy as shit.

- We didn’t want to get a cease and desist letter from PBS.

- We were sick of being named after a children’s t.v. show.

- We were sick of people fixating on it and making dumb jokes/comments about it. (even though it was our own damn fault.)

- Carrie Brownstein didn’t like the name Reading Rainbow.
