White Denim

Frantic and freewheeling indie rock combo White Denim hail from Austin, Texas, where bandmates Josh Block (drums), Steve Terebecki (bass), and James Petralli (guitars, vocals) first set up shop in 2005. All three members were veterans of the Austin scene; Block and Petralli had previously played together in the alt-rock band Parque Torche, while Terebecki was a member of Peach Train. Drawing from a number of punk and garage rock influences, the group fashioned a hard-hitting sound with crunchy guitar riffs and frantic energy. Let's Talk About It, a 7" EP, marked the band's studio debut in 2007. After releasing another EP in 2008, the group retooled many of its older songs for Explosion, White Denim's first full-length release. The band had amassed a sizable audience in the U.K. by this point, prompting the sophomore album Fits to hit British shores several months before its American release in October 2009. The following year, the group expanded its lineup to include second guitarist Austin Jenkins, and shortly afterwards self-released Last Day of Summer as a way for the bandmembers to clear out song ideas they'd been bouncing around for the past four years. In 2011, White Denim released their fourth full-length album, D, on Downtown Records. The following year they fleshed out their sound with fourth member Austin Jenkins (guitar) and embarked on a tour with Wilco. After some late-night conversations, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy agreed to lend a hand in the production of their fifth full-length release, Corsicana Lemonade, which was released in late 2013. The band quickly followed up with The Pretty Green EP in 2014. In 2015, Josh Block and Austin Jenkins left the lineup, and James Petralli and Steve Terebecki recruited two new members to take their places, guitarist Jonathan Horne and drummer Jeffrey Olson. The new edition of White Denim went into the studio with producer Ethan Johns and returned with their sixth full-length album, Stiff, released in March 2016. ~ Andrew Leahey
