The Whigs Stream New Single, ‘Hit Me,’ Announce New Album ‘Modern Creation’

The Whigs

The Whigs are known for their high-energy live shows, so for their new album, ‘Modern Creation,’ out on April 22, they wanted to capture that feel. That’s apparent in their latest single, ‘Hit Me.’

“Recording live became a goal for us early on when writing the record, before we even started composing the songs,” guitarist and vocalist Parker Gispert said in a statement. “We didn’t want the record to sound over thought and the only ways we knew how to really produce that sound would be to not get tedious about it and to not give ourselves time to over think it.”

The trio from Athens, Ga., cut ‘Hit Me’ and the rest of the album over the course of two weeks at PLYRZ Studios in Valencia, Calif., where they recorded with producer Jim Scott, known for working with Tom Petty and Wilco.

The Whigs have spent 2014 playing sold-out gigs on the East Coast and will resume their tour on Feb. 1 in Nashville. After two weeks on the road, they get a break until SXSW. They’ll also play the Shaky Knees Music Festival on May 9 and Denver Day of Rock on May 24.
