THE WHIGS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, IN THE DARK, OUT MARCH 2 ON ATO RECORDS
New Songs Now Available For Free Download
ATO Records and The Whigs are very excited to announce the release of the band's new album, In The Dark. Set for a March 2, 2010 release, In The Dark is an explosive collection of intense and tuneful songs that have been developed through years of non-stop touring and two critically acclaimed albums - Give 'Em All A Big Fat Lip and Mission Control.

Both an accessible album and one that captures The Whigs' on-stage passion (something that has become synonymous with their live show), In The Dark reveals another layer in the band's songwriting and highlights what fans and critics have fallen in love with, including Jon Pareles of The New York Times, who praised the band for their "two-chord guitar and drums furor worthy of The Who."
From the driving guitars and crushing drums of "So Lonely" to the hypnotic and playful "Black Lotus," from the reckless blitz and thuggish bass lines of "Someone's Daughter" to the anthemic "Kill Me Carolyne," In The Dark is the work of a band moving forward creatively while remaining true to their roots.
Eager to give fans new music, the Athens, GA three piece is now offering two new songs - "In The Dark" and "Hundred / Million" - for free download here.
In addition, the band is currently on a North American headlining tour premiering new songs.
