The Whigs: In the Dark


When we went to San Diego Street Scene last year, The Whigs were stuck in one of those somewhat sweaty/sparsely attended afternoon time slots, when festivalgoers are still shaking off the exhaustion from the previous day. But we made a point to catch the Athens, Ga., trio and it was just the jolt I needed to start the day.

With an opening stint on tour with Kings of Leon last year and the scheduled release of a new album, In the Dark (ATO), due in early 2010, my guess is that more well-earned publicity is headed The Whigs’ way.

To get a jump-start, the band is offering up the title track from the forthcoming release as a free download – another perfectly blended three minutes of energetic power and melody.
