Boasting textured melodies and layered guitars, the second album from Louisville's White Reaper, The World's Best American Band, finds this Kentucky rock band busting out the basement sound it established on their previous full length (2015's White Reaper Does It Again) and setting their sites on the arena.
Garnished with glimpses of the golden age of rock and roll, TWBAB is loaded with guitars that scream and gigantic drums, each song packing its own massive and refreshing punch. Lead single "Judy French" struts like a runway model raised on Heavy Metal Parking Lot, while midway point, "The Slack" harkens back to shimmering and glam classic rock.
The band have been touring their hearts out in support of the record playing headline shows and supporting dates with Spoon, Weezer, Billy Idol and The Struts. They have also hit the spectrum of major music festivals including Lollapalooza, ACL, CalJam and Forecastle.
Now off the road, the band are working on their next record with producer Jay Joyce, due out in 2019.
