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 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 and should feature some new material from their forthcoming studio album, entitled , which will be released some time early in 2010 on . As a teaser for the album, they’ve released a free download of the album’s title track over at TheWhigs.com.
