The Whigs Return to New York City Tomorrow Night

September 2nd, 2014

Parker Gispert (guitar, keys and vocals), Julian Dorio (drums) and Hank Sullivant (bass) formed the Whigs in the music hotbed of Athens, Ga., while attending the University of Georgia. They played live shows for about three years before finally recording their frenetic garage-rock sound on their first album, Give ’Em All a Big Fat Lip, (stream it below) in 2005. A year later, Rolling Stone suggested that they “may well be the best unsigned band in America.” Since then, Tim Deaux has replaced Stullvant, and the Whigs (above, performing “Hit Me” on Late Show with David Letterman) have remained busy, touring—alongside bands like Kings of Leon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Hold Steady—and recording rousing odes to swaggering rock and roll, the kind of music best heard with the windows open. Their fifth studio album, Modern Creation (stream it below), came out in April. “They’ve returned to loud guitars, but the touchstone isn’t ’90s alt. rock, it’s a fuzz-rich recreation of the ’70s—a hazy, pot-soaked acid rock,” according to AllMusic. “Modern Creation is something of a throwback: 40 minutes of fuzz designed to be heard five songs at a time.” And now the Whigs are about to hit the road again, kicking off a cross-country tour tomorrow night at Rough Trade NYC. Psych-pop trio Brass Bed and Brooklyn garage-soul duo Winstons open the show.

The Whigs Play The Bowery Ballroom in Support of New Album

April 23rd, 2014

Parker Gispert (guitar, keys and vocals), Julian Dorio (drums) and Hank Sullivant (bass) formed the Whigs in the music hotbed of Athens, Ga., while attending the University of Georgia. They played live shows for about three years before finally recording their frenetic garage-rock sound on their first album, Give ’Em All a Big Fat Lip, (stream it below) in 2005. A year later, Rolling Stone suggested that they “may well be the best unsigned band in America.” Since then, Tim Deaux has replaced Stullvant, and the Whigs (above, performing “Waiting” for PromoWest Live) have remained busy, touring— alongside bands like Kings of Leon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Hold Steady— and recording rousing odes to swaggering rock and roll, the kind of music best heard with the windows open. Their fifth studio album, Modern Creation (stream it below), was just released. “They’ve returned to loud guitars, but the touchstone isn’t ’90s alt. rock, it’s a fuzz-rich recreation of the ’70s—a hazy, pot-soaked acid rock,” according to AllMusic. “Modern Creation is something of a throwback: 40 minutes of fuzz designed to be heard five songs at a time.” Now out on the road in support of the new tunes, the Whigs play The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night. Nikki Lane and Streets of Laredo open the show.
