Whitey Is Coming To America

UK-based electro rock hype machine Whitey will see the Stateside release of his UBER critically-acclaimed debut album, The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Is A Train, on October 24 via party boy Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label. Released last year in the UK, the album received a heap of praise from the UK press, complete with hard-to-resist rock journalist quotes like, "Like Syd Barrett fronting Queens Of The Stone Age," and "The missing link between Nirvana and Fischerspooner."

Will the tremendous hype surround Whitey in the UK translate Stateside? Who knows, but at least he's coming to North America for an extensive tour and that can only help his chances. Tour details below.
