Known for their enthralling live show, the Athens, GA trio, The Whigs, are currently on tour with Band Of Skulls and will make their “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” debut April 27th. You can check out their recent appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” performing “Kill Me Carolyne,” their raucous first single from their recently released album ‘In The Dark’. The song which brings a memorable strength to this exciting new collection, is now available for free download on the band’s WEBSITE and the video premieres today on Yahoo! Music.

‘In The Dark’ is the follow up to the band’s two, much-admired, albums – ‘Give’em All A Big Fat Lip’ and ‘Mission Control’. With each release, The Whigs have won over fans and critics with their pedal-to-the-metal power earning them universal praise as one of America’s finest young rock ‘n’ roll bands. Filter Magazine hailed for “artfully combining the disenchanted swagger of ‘70s punk with the infectious, catchy bounce of ‘60s pop” and Maxim Magazine simply called “riff-tastic.” Spending much of 2008 and 2009 on the road, The Whigs have completed several tours with Kings Of Leon, The Kooks, Drive By Truckers and others, have performed at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock and T in The Park, among other festivals and worldwide stops and have performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”.

Developed through years of non-stop touring and two critically acclaimed albums, ‘In the Dark’, with its impressive range and undeniable vigor, sees The Whigs doing what all-great bands do – furthering their artistic scope with each successive effort.
