The Whigs to release Live In Little Five on Nov 11/ Live @Cattivo Oct 14

“…one of those all-encompassing, all-too-rare experiences where you actually feel the music, every perfectly synched-up moment between guitars and crashing cymbals, each echo of every shout and snarl. It’s rad. It’s hard.”–Esquire

Nashville-via-Athens, GA rock trio The Whigs have announced a new live album, Live In Little Five, that will releaseNovember 11 on New West Records. Yesterday, Paste featured the news and premiered a live video for fan-favorite “Like A Vibration,” which first appeared on the band’s critically acclaimed second full-length Mission Control in 2008. Watch the electric, energy-filled video here: https://youtu.be/7qTcJi4S8Bk.

Live In Little Five can be preordered now exclusively through Pledge Music (http://flyt.it/lil5preorder).

Recorded at Aisle 5 in Atlanta, GA last December, Live In Little Five “represent[s] the songs that are on set night in and night out,” according to frontman Parker Gispert. The album showcases eight tracks that span The Whigs’ 14-year career in what the band considers to be their purest form, as well as two previously unrecorded songs intended for their next full-length studio LP. In conjunction with the release, the band is currently on an extensive U.S. tour throughout the East Coast with shows in Chicago, Atlanta, Athens, Nashville, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and more. Full tour details below.

Though consistently lauded for their live performances through tours with killer bands of the same vein like Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, MGMT, and Drive-By Truckers, Live In Little Five will be The Whigs’ first ever live album. It follows their fifth studio LP Modern Creation, which released in 2014 on New West and was marked by the band’s fourth appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. The album received rave reviews with Spin praising it as “jangly, garage-pop glory,” and PopMatters calling the tracks “honest to goodness great rock tunes.”
