Following two instantly sold out shows at London’s Moth Club last year, WHITE DENIM return in 2019 for a European tour in February which includes a show at London’s Roundhouse.
WHITE DENIM will be touring with their sensational latest album Performance, which was released via City Slang to widespread acclaim.
Ask frontman James Petralli to outline White Denim’s mission statement a decade on from their debut and in the run up to the release of their seventh album and his answer is instant and unequivocal: “It remains unchanged from the beginning – which is just to make interesting, up-tempo rock & roll”.
That’s both bang on the button and too modest by half, because the Austin quartet have long “just” pulled hard at the parameters of rock & roll, admitting garage punk, soul, psychedelic boogie, prog, jazz and country blues while holding onto its vital goodtime core, and their up-tempo drive has produced a body of work defined as much by stellar musicianship as off-the-chain exhilaration. Energy and adventurism have always been paramount.
The band will perform at the 02 Academy in Leeds on February 19th.
