By Brock ThiessenGenre-bending rawkers White Denim have announced the details of album number two. Called Fits, it's due out on June 22 in the UK on Full Time Hobby and according to the Texan trio, it's a self-described "friendship record."
"We were congratulating each other for having good ideas," says singer/guitarist James Petralli in the PR. "We went through a lot of positive and negative things and came out of it a lot closer."
The release also went on to say we we should expect "more jazz and soul" this time out, hinting that White Denim have ventured further into the fusion territory, while saying, "there are melodic hooks to spare."
Along with this follow-up to last year's Working Holiday (or Exposion in the U.S.), the band have some tour dates scheduled, both here in North American and across the pond. In fact, White Denim play Vancouver tonight (April 6) at the Media Club before trekking back south for a few more shows in the U.S. this month.
Here's the album tracklisting, along with those dates:
1. "Radio Milk How Can You Stand It" 2. "All Consolation" 3. "Say What You Want" 4. "Hard Attack" 5. "I Start To Run" 6. "Sex Prayer" 7. "Mirrored And Reversed" 8. "Paint Yourself" 9. "I'd Have It Just The Way We Were" 10. "Everybody Somebody" 11. "Regina Holding Hands" 12. "Syncn"
