Biography

“It has taken five records to make one that sounds the way we do onstage,” says
White Denim frontman James Petralli, explaining the bandʼs new full-length
Corsicana Lemonade.
Set for release October 2013 via Downtown Records, Corsicana Lemonade puts
White Denimʼs freewheeling stage ethos to wax and cements their position as a
quintessential, unique American rock band. Featuring production on two songs
and a full mix from iconic songwriter Jeff Tweedy, itʼs a revelation, merging the
group's manic live virtuosity into a rollicking ten-song mission statement.

“It has taken five records to make one that sounds the way we do onstage,” says
White Denim frontman James Petralli, explaining the bandʼs new full-length
Corsicana Lemonade.
Set for release October 2013 via Downtown Records, Corsicana Lemonade puts
White Denimʼs freewheeling stage ethos to wax and cements their position as a
quintessential, unique American rock band. Featuring production on two songs
and a full mix from iconic songwriter Jeff Tweedy, itʼs a revelation, merging the
group's manic live virtuosity into a rollicking ten-song mission statement.
The Austin, TX four-piece is no stranger to mixing crunchy punk energy,
scorched psychedelia, Southern rock and knotty funk, but Corsicana Lemonade,
the groupʼs fifth studio album, naturally covers so many bases that it plays like
the greatest lost mixtape you could find on your dashboard during a hot summer
afternoon.
Since its formation in 2005 and first string of EPs in 2007, White Denim has
steadily expanded its sound. From the rootsy classicism of Last Day Of Summer
(2010) and noisy sun-soaked sizzle of Fits (2009) to the soft-edged riffage of D
(2011), the groupʼs commitment to fiery live performance, textured exploration
and blissful interludes has never wavered. It peaks on Corsicana Lemonade.
Album sessions started in Chicago at fabled Wilco compound The Loft with Jeff
Tweedy (and frequent production partner Tom Schick) manning the boards and providing motivation. The record was almost entirely recorded live with full-band
takes, ensuring a lived-in live feel.
"Before, we had kind of leaned on the ability to give the impression of a full live
band on our recordings. That Protools Rock is way more common than people
know," says Petralli. "On Corsicana Lemonade, it was actually the band playing
together and doing takes as a whole. Whatever sounded best was what we stuck
with."
After the Chicago sessions, White Denim returned to their native Austin, holingup in a house overlooking Lake Travis from a 100-foot cliff. There, with the help
of local producer Jim Vollentine, the band designed a makeshift studio, wheeled
in a bunch of crazy '50s gear and solidified the mixture of hard and classic rock
elements that they began exploring on their fourth album D.
The recordʼs songs feel at home with the skuzzy rawness of contemporaries like
The Black Keys or Jack White and the Americana experimentalism of Wilco,
while the band cites the classic rock shuffles of Thin Lizzy and The Allman
Brothersʼ instrumental ecstasy as primary influences.
And now, with the support of leading publications like the New York Times,
Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and Relix, as well as adoring crowds from Bonnaroo to
their sold-out headlining tours, White Denim has fully arrived with a record to
claim their own spot in America's great rock lineage.
Corsicana Lemonade is available in October 29, 2013 via Downtown
Records. Catch the band at Austin City Limits this October and on tour with
Tame Impala this fall.
