Hot off the heels of their 6 blazing SXSW shows and being named the Best Rock Band at SXSW for the 4th consecutive year by Gorilla Vs Bear, White Denim will be bringing a sampling of new sounds from their upcoming Downtown Records album, D, to cities across the country as they launch the For D tour. The band will start their journey on the west coast and wind their way across the mountains and plains before heading out east (more dates to come!). Before White Denim hits the road, they’ll be making a stop in Nashville at Jack White’s Third Man Records for a special performance on April 1st where the band will be performing and recording a live version of their upcoming album.

D marks a new chapter in the Austin quartet’s story, as they cull influences from prog and psych rock, folk and blues to create an updated Americana sound that is undeniably their own. Listeners will recognize White Denim’s signature tangential guitar riffs and precise percussion angled on a new melodic trajectory that is reminiscent of some of southern and classic rock’s finest. In support of their upcoming tour, White Denim has meticulously crafted the perfect soundtrack for summer joyrides with the windows down and late night parties that go until sunrise -White Denim -Mixdisc 2. Fans can listen to some of the biggest influences for D and prep for what will be one of the most memorable shows in 2011!

White Denim’s D will be available in all retail outlets around the world on May 24th, 2011

“a rocketing, punk-speed take on twangy Texas garage-rock” – NEW YORK TIMES

“They notoriously give you a taste of a juicy jam and then warp it or abandon it before you can really get your fix, but the ever-twisting song structures (or lack thereof) make a White Denim performance more of an event than a typical rock show.” – WIRED

“the band combines the Stooges’ raw power, Hendrix’s psychedelic flourishes and the White Stripes’ stripped-down blues rock.”- ROLLING STONE

“Austin, Texas’ White Denim make post-rock that actually rocks.”- SPIN
