Austin psych-rockers White Denim have stuck their heads above ground and dropped some tantalizing hints about future projects. After a summer locked away in the studio the Texans have spoken of two new albums, a fall tour in the US, and a fourth band member. How’s that for breaking the silence?
A post on the band’s official website teased the new records and band member in a post confirming the tour. With no preamble, the post stated, “We got a new guitarist that shreds.” before continuing with ”we will have new music for you to hear and buy in October. It will be the latter of the 2 records weve made this year” (via Clash). No further details are available at this time regarding the mystery shredder, but as far as we know, the three piece is now a four piece.
Turning to the fall tour, the band kicks off with a hometown gig at Antone’s Blues Bar on October 16th, before heading to Dallas; Norman, OK; and Lawrence, KS with further dates in Nebraska, Colorado, and Arizona leading to a four stop tour of California to see out the tour. Seven of the scheduled dates will be with Portugal the Man.
Be sure to check back for more details on the two records as well as any more information on the mystery axeman. Meanwhile, head on over to Ticketmaster where some tickets to the dates below are now available.
