White Denim To Write, Record & Release New Album While Off Road Due To Coronavirus
White Denim will use their time social distancing due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak writing, recording, mixing, mastering and releasing a new album. The 30-day project begins tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18 with their new album, World As A Waiting Room, coming out on April 17.
Several White Denim tour dates were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year the Austin-based band released the studio album, Side Effects and the live album In Person.
The band shared the below note regarding their 30-day album project:
Making the most of this time off the road with a new recording project. In 30 days we’ll write, record, mix and master a new White Denim LP. Starting Monday, you can support the project by pre-ordering digital and physical versions from our US and UK online stores. Throughout the process we’ll be sharing photos, videos, and rough mixes to everyone who’s pre-ordered.
Clock starts on Wednesday, March 18th. On April 17th we’ll send out downloads of the finished album (MP3, WAV, FLAC options), and drop it with our friends at @goldrushvinyl for a special one-week turnaround of lacquering, plating and pressing.
We wouldn’t be able to do this without help from you all and some local businesses. More to come on the partners who are supporting this project. Thank you in advance for helping to keep the band and crew working while we all ride this out together.
Look out for each other. Stay creative and positive,
Head here to pre-order World As A Waiting Room. Vinyl editions are expected to be released on May 6.
