white denim

After releasing their stellar Workout Holiday LP in the UK to unequivocally glowing reviews, then proceeding to tear up clubs all over Europe, TX’s White Denim is finally set to release their self-produced Exposion LP here in the states in November on Austin’s young Transmission label. I might’ve gone on enough about how much I love these dudes over the last couple years, so let’s just say that Exposion fully embodies this band’s raw power and earnest, soulful approach, and is undeniably one of the best records that will be released this year. Here’s the album’s glorious closing anthem:

Exposion arrives November 3 on Transmission. The band will play both the Monolith and ACL festivals in September before heading abroad for the Iceland Airwaves fest in October.
