Athens, Georgia’s garage rockers / power poppers The Whigs are
back with a new album titled “In The Dark” coming out March 16th.

Produced by Ben Allen (worked on Gnarls Barkley’s St. Elsewhere
and Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion) It’s the
follow up to their crazy good, swift kick in the gonads 2008
rock n’ roll opus “Mission Control”.

I will freely admit that I was not a fan of their 2005 debut
“Give ‘Em All a Big Fat Lip”. Listened to that album once and
just dismissed them as another generic rock band that did
absolutely nothing for me.

But … when I heard Mission Control’s first single “Right
Hand On My Heart”
, a blast of sweet, garage-y, southern power
pop well that just proved to me how f’ing wrong I was. You
also must see them live to really appreciate the raw power of
this rock threesome.

Lucky for you, you’ll be able to experience this raw power I
speak of. They’ll be hitting the road starting February
opening for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Then, starting
in April, they will co-headline a tour with Band Of Skulls.

You’ll also get half a dozen chances to catch ’em live next
month @ South By Southwest.

Generous blokes that they are, The Whigs are giving their fans
a sneak preview of the album by offering the opening track
“Hundred / Million” and the title track “In The Dark”
as a free download.

You can also stream the song “Kill Me Carolyne” on the band’s
official website.
