The Whigs: Fall Tour Dates and New Studio Track

thewhigs_inthedark

If you’ve read this site for a while, you’ll already know how much I dig the Whigs. They play pretty straight-forward, melodic garage rock, but something about their sound just grabs me.

After nabbing a killer slot playing to huge crowds while opening for Kings of Leon this summer, Parker Gispert and crew are headed back out on the road to play smaller rock clubs on a six-week jaunt throughout the U.S. Their tour starts at end of October in Boston and should feature some new material from their forthcoming studio album, entitled In The Dark, which will be released some time early in 2010 on ATO Records. As a teaser for the album, they’ve released a free download of the album’s title track over at TheWhigs.com.
