The Whigs To Release In The Dark March 2nd

Athens, GA's finest band since R.E.M. announced a release date for their follow-up to 2008's Mission Control.  ATO Records will release the album on March 2nd.  Those who cannot wait a few months to get their ears on the new material can either head to to grab free downloads of "In The Dark" and "Hundred/Million" from the band directly, or just head out to one of their December dates below:

December 4 - The Variety Playhouse - Atlanta, Georgia

December 5 - Rhythm & Brews - Chattanooga, Tennessee

December 8 - Visulite - Charlotte, North Carolina

December 10 - Black Cat - Washington, DC, Washington DC

December 11 - The Fillmore @ Irving Plaza - New York, New York

December 12 - North Star - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

December 14 - Local 506 - Chapel Hill, North Carolina

December 15 - Pour House - Charleston, South Carolina
With The Features (the first band signed to Kings Of Leon's new imprint label) lending support for these shows, seems like a safe bet!  One listen to their ode to the working man, "The Temporary Blues", and you will know why we are so upset they are not hitting Chicago.
