White Denim's New Album 'Side Effects' Out Now

Article Contributed by Chromatic Publicity | Published on Friday, March 29, 2019

Less than a year after the release of their critically acclaimed album Performance, the ever-prolific White Denim have today released their new album Side Effects via City Slang, now available for purchase or streaming HERE. More in line with the experimental, freewheeling spirit of their fan-favorite record Last Day of Summer, Side Effects—which has seen early praise from The New York Times, Uncut Magazine, Mojo, Q, NME, Brooklyn Vegan, and more—is an album that captures the essence of the band’s full-throttle live shows. Listen to teaser tracks NY Money," "Shanalala,” and “Reversed Mirror.”

White Denim kick off a headlining West Coast tour on April 17th in Seattle, including sold out shows in Portland, Los Angeles (second shows added in each city) and San Francisco. They recently wrapped a triumphant SXSW run with performances for FLOODfest, Aquarium Drunkard, and the second annual day party at their own recording studio Radio Milk in East Austin. Variety included White Denim in their best of SXSW recap, raving "this year's iteration is their freest-flowing yet, with frontman Petralli nailing lick after odd-time lick. Rock is dead? Hardly." See below for a full itinerary of upcoming dates.

Spearheaded by Petralli and Terebecki (who tag-teamed production and called in specific talents from their rolodex of musicians), Side Effects has the feeling of a band providing fan service in a way only White Denim could do – by referencing their own material and putting out a record for fans to dig deep into. The 9 original tracks of Side Effects draw on the sounds of different personnel to create a journey through White Denim’s range of styles – the result being an album that’s as varied and vivacious as anything they’ve ever done.
