Our main aim for SXSW 2013 was to capture the mayhem through photography, and what better way to do so than by handing the cameras over to the artists? Call us lazy all you like (we're not, we promise), but there's not a chance we would've done a better job than Bleached when it comes to candid shots of pugs and broken nails!

Check out their photo diary below, and look out for their debut album Ride Your Heart, which is released on April 1st via Dead Oceans.

UK Dates:

  • 20 - Leeds - Brudenell Social Club
  • 21 - Glasgow - Nice & Sleazy
  • 22 - London - Corsica Studios


First day at SXSW and doing a semi acoustic set for Sirius XMU. Got really excited that the guy interviewing us was in Wet Hot American Summer, one of my favorite movies!



Jess and I ran into our LA friends King Tuff and Gap Dream walking down 6th street!



About to play the Rachael Ray party and then the PA broke right before. But while we were waiting we got to meet the cutest dog in the whole world.



It's day two of SXSW and woke up early to do a photo shoot with SPIN magazine. It's going to be a throwback of the 1980s swimsuit series.



On our fourth show of nine at the Trasher Magazine / Converse Death Match. There were so many guys skating on the ramp. Jon our drummer got this rad picture.



After that we got to head over to The Fader Fort Converse lounge and get custom converse made! I got mine covered in Black Roses.



Day 3! And playing the Dr. Martens / Filter magazine party. We got so many awesome docs and I got a shirt from the Dr. Martens Agyness Deyn collection! I was so happy.



My voice is shot. Luckily ran into my friend Mish from White Lung and she hooked it up with some secret vocal spray.



Feeling Dead. Need hydration!



Last day! And we got to play the Spin Party! I seriously thought I was gonna faint.



Fingers are destroyed but only one show left!!



We wanted to get into the Kendrick Lamar show so bad but it was at capacity. Feel kinda bad cuz I think Jess and I were being major brats to security. Sorry ;)



So in the end we made our way to the Perez Hilton party. The next day I found this photo and thought it was really funny because we were so confused on where to go. They kept calling us Ali G.
