[press release] Beloved rockers The Whigs are excited to announce their new album "Enjoy The Company," out September 18th on New West Records. Showcasing their growth as songwriters, "Enjoy The Company" sees The Whigs deliver on the promise of being one of America's most exciting rock bands.
Written in Nashville, TN and Athens, GA, and recorded in Woodstock, NY with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.), the band was able to capture the best parts of their earlier albums and create an exciting album full of driving rock songs that are punk, pop, and melodic - all of the reasons why we fell in love with The Whigs.
Drummer Julian Dorio says "we looked back at our first three albums and saw what we liked and didn't. We thought about the songwriting, playing, production - taking the best elements to make a record - a bunch of songs, that we're really proud of."
See what he's talking about on new song "Summer Heat" below! Lead singer and songwriter Parker Gispert caught up with Rolling Stone to talk about the new album. Check it out HERE.
The Whigs have spent most of their career on the road, winning over both critics and music lovers with their fist pumping live shows. Already confirmed for this year's Austin City Limits Music Festival, the band will once again hit the road this fall. Stay tuned for a full list of tour dates.
