Where: The Southern
Three years on from their critically acclaimed "barbeque" record 'Corsicana Lemonade,' White Denim are back with more than just a new album to commemorate. Their sixth record, 'Stiff' -- out March 25, 2016 via Downtown Records/Sony Red -- is a return to the Austin quartet's frenetic rock band roots, and is both a jubilant thrill ride and joyous celebration of their past ten years. Heading into the studio with an external producer to oversee a whole album for the first time -- and even writing a tune with Cass McCombs ("Thank You") -- the band teamed up with the legendary Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Laura Marling, The Staves) to produce their first truly live record, one teeming with a cool '70s undertow, tumultuous riffs and a feverish energy that's resulted in arguably some of their biggest and brawniest songs to date.
