The Whigs Headlining Tour


Athens, GA garage rockers The Whigs are very excited to hit the road this month and premiere songs from their upcoming album, In The Dark (ATO Records). The headlining tour covers 29 cities in seven weeks and The Features, The Dead Trees, and Mean Creek will support the run at different stages.

Set for an early 2010 release, In The Dark follows up the highly successful album Mission Control, a record that captured the raw and gritty spirit of rock n roll and had countless critics scrambling to praise the band’s no-holds-barred, bare-boned aesthetic.

To give fans a sneak peek at In The Dark, The Whigs are offering the title track for free.

Since the release of Mission Control, which debuted on Billboard’s Alternative New Artists Chart at #4 and #10 on the Heatseekers chart, The Whigs have performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, have completed several tours with Kings Of Leon, The Kooks, Drive By Truckers and others, and have performed at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock and T in The Park, among other festivals and worldwide stops.
