White Denim Tour Dates

White Denim Coast to Coast Tour with Tapes N Tapes Starts April 10

Austin Chronicle: "Best New Band In Austin"

NY Times SXSW Wrap-up: "A power trio with rocketing punk speed take on the twangy Texas guitar rock"

White Denim
Wriggling free from the straight jacket that is 'garage rock,' the White Denim sound could be likened to an updated millennial Minutemen, fused with Devo and MC5, topped off with Monks-style chants and a soulful wail c/o James Petralli that really lifts the bands into a different realm. Live is where they really come into their own. The bass stands to attention in a way that seems lost since the death of Mark Sandman, the drums and percussive elements are boisterous and rousing and the confident layering and fuzzy wah-wah of the guitar fuse together to create a beautifully raw and loud cacophony. It really needs to be experienced whilst they remain in smaller venues, as the band's connection with each other and ability to communicate on stage is electrifying.

The supremely humble yet highly effervescent White Denim took over their home town for what would become a battering-ram SXSW that left many in awe as to their band dynamic. They were simply one of the best bands to appear at the festival, and what made it better than most was that they played themselves into the ground, but still managed to pull off a final appearance at Habana Calle 6 that is still ringing in the ears of those fortunate enough to be present.
