WHITE RABBITS are an American six-piece indie rock band that is based in Brooklyn, New York, originally from Columbia, Missouri. The band released its debut studio album, Fort Nightly, on May 22, 2007. The band’s frontmen, Greg Roberts and Stephen Patterson, met at college in 2004. Alex Even, Adam Russell and Greg had formerly played in the band TEXAS CHAINSAW MASS CHOIR. The original WHITE RABBITS lineup consisted of five members, but after relocating to New York City the next year, the band expanded to six members. The sixth member, Jamie Levinson, had grown up on the same street as Roberts. Roberts and Levinson both played in a ska band while in high school. To be honest I am glad that they quit playing ska and started playing music I like more, or even more: they are now playing music I really like. Their first studio album, Fort Nightly, was recorded and released in 2007. The album was praised by critics.

In 2009, the band released their second album, titled It’s Frightening. The album was produced by Britt Daniel, lead singer and guitarist of SPOON – pretty funny that they only got him on board, because they asked him after meeting the band while touring in Minneapolis. The was released on TBD Records, a label which also hosts the bands RADIOHEAD and UNDERWORLD.

Now WHITE RABBITS released their third album Milk Famous. Brand new and highly anticipated. The press-text tells, that “only this Brooklyn-based band’s combination of Midwestern roots and eclectic musical backgrounds could produce the balance of beauty and bombast that is Milk Famous Produced by Mike McCarthy, Milk Famous will be on every person of wealth and taste’s shortlist of Best Records of 2012.” And damn, yes, they are right. This album is a bombast! And even more: this album will surely be one of the indierock-releases of 2012!

The album-title Milk Famous means “To be known but not for something you intended to be known for”, Stephen explains.

Milk Famous is both the third WHITE RABBITS album, and the band’s second release for TBD Records. Technically WHITE RABBITS signed to TBD before RADIOHEAD (we mentioned above that they are there, too). Why am I telling this? I just don’t want you to think that WHITE RABBITS are following someone else’s footsteps…

You can check out the video to the song Heavy Metal below. It is the first track from Milk Famous which was released. The first single is called Temporary – which you can listen to here, too. Aren’t singles something strange? Someone chooses the song you should listen to first.

You should see Heavy Metal and Temporary as the door to an amazing album.  Once you listened to these two songs you will enter the world of Milk Famous, and I promise the album won’t leave you within the next time…
