Calling all indie-loving-garage-punk-rockers! Do we have a band for you! Swinging on in from Louisville, Kentucky we urge you to give White Reaper the love and attention they deserve (which is all of it!)
Starting in 2015 the band consists of Tony Esposito (guitar/vocals), Ryan Hater (keyboard), Sam Wilkerson (bass), Nick Wilkerson (drums), and Hunter Thompson (guitars). And so far they’ve graced the musical world with two EPs and two full length albums. If you haven’t heard of White Reaper yet, that’s cool. Because we’re about to save the day. White Reaper’s sound is absolutely unique, complete with catchy hooks and superb instrumentals that can’t help but make us want to have fun. So put on your party pants, because White Reaper has a new album on the way titled You Deserve Love.
Listen to White Reaper, Because You Deserve it.
If you are an avid alternative radio listener maybe you’ve heard some of the singles from their upcoming album. Maybe you’ve even been lucky enough to catch them on the road, they’ve spent the last year as a support on some similar sounding idols like The Killers and Weezer. Or perhaps you’ve caught them at one of several festival appearances.
While we haven’t been fortunate enough to catch them live yet, we have heard the singles from their upcoming album, You Deserve Love and we are stoked on it. The singles consist of songs “Real Long Time” and the most recent teaser “1F”. As well as our personal favorite (so far) “Might Be Right”. Just as we imagined, these songs make us feel GOOD. Dance around in your underwear (or fully clothed, whatever) GOOD. If you haven’t listened yet, DO IT (insert Shia LeBeouf meme).
The good news is, you won’t have to wait too long for your new favorites to deliver, because the album is dropping October 18th. What a day for music, considering Jimmy Eat World‘s new album drops the same day! While you wait, make sure to explore their entire discography. We’re certain you won’t regret it.
