THE WHIGS: New Album, Tour

The Athens, GA three-piece, The Whigs have just released their latest (and greatest) album "Mission Control" on which they've perfected the raucous rock-filled maelstrom that made me a fan in the first place. If you're in the Atlanta area please pick this baby up over at Criminal Records, if not you can point that mouse towards Insound.com.

The Whigs are playing two hometown CD release shows to kick off their US tour, one this Friday (1/25) over at The EARL in Atlanta, GA, and another on Saturday (1/26) at The 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA (you can pick up their new album at one of these shows as well).
