Ltd Edition Orange and Black Colour Vinyl (Ltd to 1000 copies)
*Update: Surprise new vinyl-only full-length album, initially thought to be a 12” single*
Having released 10 albums since their debut in 2008, ‘Crystal Bullets b/w King Tears’ was initially marketed as a 12” single by “The last great Rock’n’Roll band” (The Guardian).
On release date it was revealed that the 12” was actually a full length 9-track album, only to ever be released on Vinyl!
It containing White Denim’s first new music since the lockdown 30-day-album project ‘World As A Waiting Room’.
‘Crystal Bullets’ was inspired by the groove of the great Bernard Purdie and the signature chopped and screwed production techniques of Houston, Texas’ late great DJ Screw. The final minute features the most sublime harmonised sax solo you’ll ever hear…
White Denim have long pulled hard at the parameters of rock & roll, admitting garage punk, soul, psychedelic boogie, prog, jazz and country blues while holding onto its vital goodtime core, and their up-tempo drive has produced a body of work defined as much by stellar musicianship as off-the-chain exhilaration. Energy and adventurism have always been paramount.
